  • Wonderful food. lovely staff and serounding but completely spoilt by being freezing cold, halfway through the main course we went and got our coats and sat for the rest of the meal with them on, we were glad to get to the car and warm up.
  • Wonderful guided tour of the gardens of HRH Prince of Wales at Highgrove near Tetbury. Book your tour, have your photo ID ready and be transported into a world of organic gardening and delight. The tour guides are extremely knowledgeable and all the Highgrove staff are friendly and professional. After the tour, spend time in the restaurant and sample pure English afternoon tea. So yummy!
