    Great Cotswold countryside views from a wonderful modern building with tasteful and expensive-looking furniture and decor. Very good food at a very reasonable price. Service could have been a little faster and more responsive but wait staff were polite and pleasant. Overall a very enjoyable location for Sunday lunch. Although it is a golf club, as casual diners we felt welcome. Will definitely come back to explore the dinner menu.

    Lovely food overall, the chicken parfait starter despite being delicious could have done with an additional slice(s) of sourdough toast. Also an option of cheese sauce on the the vegetables would be preferred, as none of our diners liked cheese on the broccoli.

    Cosy little countryside restaurant which character and a delicious menu. While the menu appears to be your typical 'pub food', we found the quality of the food to be impeccable. It was truly delicious and beautifully presented. The decor of the restaurant was cosy, stylish and inviting. However, we found it to be fairly quiet, perhaps lacking ambience / atmosphere. Would recommend for anyone looking for a well-priced, high quality, casual but stylish evening in the Cotswolds.

    It was an incredible nye dinner, lovely ambience and lovely decoration. The food was very good, portions could have been bigger, but the dessert was what gave the five stars. The only problem we had it was that the staff kept on repeating that we had to order fast, it would have been nicer if they would come every second and ask us if we were ready to order rather than keep on repeating we had to be fast. Overall very good ambiance and excellent food, we were so happy

    We are so lucky to have this excellent restaurant close to us. The menu is very interesting and varied. If you don’t fancy anything elaborate there are always the standard classics such as fish and chips which are superlative !! Lovely friendly staff and good service. Very reasonable prices make it somewhere to go to often. It never fails to provide a very good evening , or lunch. We love it!

    We loved the feel of the place. It was our first visit. I had the beetroot salad with crispy goats cheese which was lovely but maybe some other things instead of mixed leaves could be added? (Ribbons of cucumber or some such maybe?) The cappuccino was exceptional and the churros were very tasty too.

    Hi Angela - thanks very much for taking the time to review your experience at Feldon and I am very glad that you enjoyed the visit. I have passed on your feedback the Head Chef - there should have been roasted beets, pickled beets and a nice balsamic dressing served with it so I hope it wasnt just the leaves? I hope we can welcome you back again!

    starters were disappointing - one was 3 x small deep fried goats cheese balls, a tiny bit of beetroot on a bed of undressed water cress. Roast beef - no horseradish, Pork - no apple sauce. Churos - not home made with a watery dipping chocolate sauce. Such a shame as its normally amazing

    We personally found this place to be lacking in atmosphere. Everyone in couples with music so low you could hardly hear it was on and felt everyone could hear your conversation. Service was okay, not especially quick. I asked if I could have potato instead of risotto or chips but was told the chef was very particular about what flavours go together and after asking this couldn’t be done due to this and I would have to have chips. Slightly odd as chips are potatoes and I was the customer who was happy with this ‘flavour combination’! My husband had a large piece of cling film in his dinner that we mentioned. We did get his meal taken off the bill but it was dealt with a bit strangely. We were just handed the bill at the end and saw it had been taken off, I’m surprised they didn’t explain that when handing us the bill. I’m glad to say breakfast was a much nicer affair but we chose to sit in the bar area. Hash browns were especially nice and the service was excellent compared to the night before.

    Food lovely but the best ever, chicken great, steak good, fish lovely. Staff really exceptionally lovely. Little bit corporate ambience, but still nice place to eat dinner, lots of couple but we were a group of friends. Wine from £22-£75 a bottle. Dinner for four 2 courses with a bottle of wine £180 inc 12.5% discretionary charge. Felt good value.

    Great location. But the food was sorely lacking: it was under seasoned and very oily - we were looking forward to going and heard great reviews, but perhaps there was a change in chef? The staff didn’t check in on us at all, and the service was very slow. I wouldn’t recommend.

    The restaurant setting is beautiful, quiet, and on a sunny day overlooking the course really nice. The menu this time July 2023 was limited, only my opinion, I struggled to choose a dessert, not a lot of choice and all seemed quite similar, fruit/ice cream. My starter mackerel was delicious, but my chicken with risotto did not look appealing, risotto was a little bland, so was only ok. My hubby’s meal was similar. In saying all that - would we go back - yes we would as the menu does change.

    Excellent Sunday lunch. The food was all local ( much from their garden) and very tasty. A special mention for the home made ice creams which were exceptional. It was a lovely warm day and the sliding doors had been pulled back which made the most of the beautiful views and breeze. It’s such a lovely buzzy, atmospheric space.
