Our full a la carte restaurant service runs each week from Wednesday until Monday from 18:00 until 20:30 - we are closed on Tuesday nights. Set in beautiful Cotswold landscape our balconies and floor to ceiling glass provide the perfect setting to enjoy Ben Tynan's superb dishes inspired by the seasonality of local produce.

Due to the current recruitment difficulties we are unable to offer a full lunch servive, but we are also open from 12:00 until 16:00 every day for sandwiches and cake. We are still looking to recruit two Chefs in these difficult times and once that is possible our service covereage will expand once more.

If you have any questions, please give us a call on 01608 685633 or drop us a line at thekitchen@feldonvalley.co.uk

We look forward to sharing a great experience with you

                                            Absolutely fabulous!! From the moment we arrived we were met by two lovely attentive ladies who showed us our table .. we went to the bar and had a drink before dinner very relaxed atmosphere with friendly bar tenders . For dinner I had a double baked cheese soufflé and my husband had the scallops which were both sublime followed by the sea bass the food and service were both excellent and can’t wait to go back !!

                                            I couldn’t understand why a restaurant like this needed a credit card to confirm booking but it must be because of the number of people who turn up to the venue, realise it looks like a high end hospital canteen and turn away. I would’ve moved on of it wasn’t for the potential £15ph no show fee. In hindsight I wish I’d taken the the no show fee because the food was distinctly average. The soufflé promised so much but it was a non raised pile of scrambled egg. The terrine and pate looked great plated and to be fair was the tastiest part of the entire meal but then they dumped burnt slices of supermarket bought bread on the side. The butternut arancini was not arancini- it was the driest slab of deep fried rice. The filet steak, at £34, was tough, tasteless and not cooked medium rare as requested; way over. The chips so hot they were inedible to eat with the rest of the meal. We decided not to waste time or money on dessert. The service we received was friendly, and welcoming. Definitely the best part of the experience.

                                            We enjoyed a very pleasant Friday evening. We were staying close by and managed to get a table for 7pm. The main restaurant was quite empty when we were seated, but filled up a while later. The food was superb, the service to begin with the very good but when numbers started to increase, the level of service dropped because there didn’t appear to be enough staff for the number of tables. We were sat near some doors open to the rear of the building and it became quite chilly. Overall, it is a lovely venue with great food so wouldn’t hesitate to recommend

                                            We had amazing food at The Kitchen and so I was pleasantly surprised that the bill was less than expected! Would recommend.

                                            We really enjoined our lunch there. Service was amazing and the food was very tasty and fairly priced for such a nice place.

                                            The food was amazing we had 3 courses, we didn’t wait long and the timing for start to finish we couldn’t fault. The staff were very attentive to us, always made sure the glass was filled and came over without having to ask.

                                            Excellent meal, my only small gripe would be the lack of choice for supper. Perhaps a chicken dish or another choice aside from beef (steak or burger) would have been nice. However the steak was lovely and the service was excellent.

                                            Could not fault the food but the service has let it down. Waited on by the manager and from the start it was a poor service. We asked for still water and got sparkling, we then asked for two mains with a side of fries and after waiting for forty minutes, that came out wrong as well so they took the mains back to keep warm but left the fries to go cold? After a few minutes the manager told us they were going to give us some bread while we waited again for the mains, but the mains arrived before the bread did so was not really much use.

                                            My partner and I stayed at the hotel (which was lovely) and were informed that I needed to let the restaurant know of my dietary restrictions so that the chef could prepare a separate dish/menu. However, on the day, I was told I could have the one vegetarian dish on the menu with eggs and cheese removed. Normally I would be okay with this but as the meal was “fine dining”, which I assume took time to develop, removing elements from what I imagine is a great dish threw the balance off. It was overly salty and lacked any real flavour. My partner enjoyed the scallops but his pork belly was essentially all fat (not rendered) and not crispy. I’m not sure if this was how it was meant to be but he had to scrape it off and eat the thin layer of pork that was there. I’m sure it’s good value for money when you get a great meal, however it was hard to justify how much we spent for the meal we had and we were disappointed that this was our last dinner of our holiday.

                                            Did not know that the a la carte menu was not available on a Sunday so that made the choice of food very limited. What we had was nice however.

                                            Hi Dean We do run the Bar Menu on Sundays from 11am until 20:30, but appreciate that this is not the full restaurant service. This week sees the launch of the Restaurant from Wednesday to Saturday and our full Sunday Lunch menuu should be ready to go in July. I'm glad that you enjoyed your food and hope to see you back at Feldon Valley one day soon. David

                                            The restaurant is a hidden gem open to non members of the golf club. Slightly limited menu due to COVID but very tasty. The tasting menu is great value and would highly recommend.

                                            A lovely venue with wonderful views across the golf course. Tasty food, you must try the twice-baked soufflé!! The decor & atmosphere in the restaurant is great. The current social distancing and Covid prevention measures all work well. Highly recommended!

                                            The Kitchen delivers excellent, fine-dining food at very reasonable prices and is to be highly commended and recommended to others. The restaurant, service and quality of the food always astounds me when it is less than 15 minutes from where I live. Normally I would have to travel much further to get this quality.

                                            It was lovely but I expected more. Considering Feldon Valley shout about their menus, I was expecting more from the house menu. Starters and mains were lovely - wine was delicious. However we had to send the desert back. It tasted cheap & shop bought. Would recommend the wine, starters and mains but think the deserts need work
