We also have farmshop and café locations in Brompton Cross, Marylebone, Notting Hill and Pimlico in London, please visit daylesford.com for more information.
Booked last minute, and we were very pleasantly surprised. I thought this would be the sort of place you’d usually go after a spa day (which they also have on site), and it’s very casual, but in the evening, it was actually a beautifully lit, ambient room with beautifully simple and organic food. Love the Daylesford farm shop, and it’s no surprise that the restaurant also followed through. Thank you to our lovely waiters, too. P.S. coffee is great and try the Chocolate Nemesis!
Excellent food, beautifully presented and v pleasant and helpful staff. Was a little noisy with v small children for first few minutes but we had deliberately booked a table for 8 and it did quieten v quickly. Service was excellent and v helpful staff in beautifully understated surroundings.
Lovely space, ingredients were fresh but steak wasn’t hot by the time it was served and service was not great
Very relaxed evening in a lovely environment and great food. Thankyou
Lovely dinner with bbq cooked to perfection and lots of trash and tasty vegetables, always top quality
Service was excellent. Food was good, but not great. Ambience was fantastic.
Good food service and value-what else can one ask for?
Absolutely lovely evening meal, excellent food all staff knowledgeable and very friendly
Can’t understand why there are negative recent reviews, we would definitely return when in the area.
Delicious food in great surroundings, friendly service and relaxed atmosphere. The salads were amazing and the meats were tender and mouth wateringly good. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
Beautiful venue and location. But it ends there as with all Daylesford the food tastes and looks like a fat loss Bootcamp. There is no love in the food and no butter or olive oil - also there’s an attempt to provide multicultural cuisine such as “jerk” pulled beef but this has no resemblance to the original.
Food was superb, the restaurant and bar are both stunning and the service was brilliant. Best place I’ve been in a while, would certainly recommend.
The atmosphere was lovely and relaxing, reasonable choice of good quality food. Would definitely go back and they only thing that let is down was that one of the waitresses wasn't as attentive as she could have been. For example we had to ask another server to take our pudding order as she had forgotten about us.
We were going to eat outside as it looked so attractive out there, but because it was slightly windy we decided to eat inside. The seating was very comfortable.
The evening menu is limited for obvious reasons but the sea bass was outstanding and lamb excellent. Also the chocolate dessert was delicious.
Food was good and came in good time. Service lacked any connection and we felt like they want us to finish quickly and leave. Value was average considering the food. Will be back but not rushing.
Sat outside in the beautiful courtyard, tables were more than appropriately spaced out. Food was excellent, bbq mains came with potatoes and two salads; very fresh and tasty. Service could have been a little more attentive.
Really beautiful atmosphere, amazing outdoor setting and really good quality food.
Fantastic food and amazing service. I will definitely return!
Loved the food venison burger is fabulous. Beef burger was a bit bland an dry . Rest of the food was was wonderful great evening
great as usual. Drinks in The Legbar first, followed by supper in The Trough. Always good food and great service.
We find that Daylesford never fails to please. We just love knowing that every dish is freshly made with absolutely the best ingredients possible and with almost no e numbers and additives, thank you.
Good food and service. Nice surroundings. Good for lunch or dinner.
Just lovely! Great atmosphere, diligent staff and fab food - what more could you ask for?!
Delicious food in fab surroundings, great service too!
Fantastic food and great friendly service. Definitely recommend.
We have eaten at Daylesford many times over the years.
We were very disappointed on this occasion.
Service was adequate, but the food was less than satisfactory.
A side dish had to returned because it was cold and the “crispy” Parmesan biscuits were not crispy.
10 minutes after ordering we were told that there were no potatoes, would chips be ok, instead of wedges. How is it possible that the (very friendly) waitress was not told this before we ordered. Blade steak was grizzly and tough. Altogether very disappointing given the price and despite getting the pudding for free.
Great location, great ambiance, super music vibe, outstanding service, unfortunately the meal was very poor quality, and almost inedible.
Stylish relaxed atmosphere, friendly attentive staff, interesting menu. A little bit too much background groove etc music coming from the Legbar, but we could talk across the table. Would revisit.
Love Daylesford: The Legbar and The Trough are wonderful.
We drove 200 km to come back this time. Compared to last time there were no other clients at all.
So not an energetic ambiance.
The food was fair.
We have been visiting Daylesford for many years but lapsed recently. Glad we went back because the additions to the building are both beautiful and add more choice for dining. After a long period of exceptional service, we remain a disappointed at the service on a Saturday evening; it is less convivial than it used to be. However, the staff are professional and polite and the quite nature of the restaurant on Saturday evenings makes it a perfect location for intimate dinners - a place to fully enjoy the quality of the food and the company of people close to you. The menu is a good balance of familiar with challenging, so it depends upon one's mood, not the restaurants limitations, as to the type of food to be consumed. The ambience, considering all the changes that have been implemented, remains exceptional - comfortable, beautiful, inspiring and relaxed.
Made reservation at 845p. Was rushed through ordering and dinner and made to feel like we were holding them up from going home! My message to them: don’t take 845p reservations if you can’t deliver a dining experience at that time. Also, weird dj and music in the background. Don’t try too hard to attract Londoner’s. Not even current music. It’s still the country.
I really love this whole place. A beautiful shop selling all the produce from the farm and local suppliers. A great restaurant inside a converted barn. And a really great terrace bar and outdoor seating. The bar area could have been somewhere on a beach in Ibiza and people would be there all summer dropping 1000s. The build quality is high level and design is really pleasant. It was so good for dinner we came back the next day to look around and scrapped our lunch plans and stayed there. Really lovely complex. A disappointing pasta and cheesecake dropped a food star but I would still go back.
The Trough & The Legbar are fabulous. We are there at least once a week for cocktails, glass of wine and something to eat. Food is wonderful, freshly cooked, organic and perfect ! Team are excellent and with the new Legbar, DJ's on Friday & Saturday nights, its the place to be in The Cotswolds !
A very relaxed and enjoyable evening, we chose this venue due to DJ being there would add to ambiance, extremely comfortable surroundings lovely sharing plates and the added bonus of car charging as I had forgotten to plug in before leaving home. look forward to our next visit here. Lovely staff very helpful with booking amendment.
Lovely meal, lovely place, I can’t wait to come back.
Another cool evening at The Legbar / Trough. Food was great, place was buzzing and the tunes were super cool. We had a banging night, thanks Daylesford.
As usual, Daylesford is so stunning. Food always a delight and the whole vibe of The Legbar and The Trough makes for something so very special. Friday and Saturday nights with a DJ just adds to the fun. The Daylesford team are great, very attentive and ‘on message’. We LOVE Daylesford.
This revamped venue has lots of potential to be a fabulous night out in the Cotswolds...great organic food served by a great team with music and ambience to match...loved it x
