Staying in the Cotswolds for a couple of days and wanted to try a restaurant that wasn’t in the popular touristy areas. Discovered the Feathered Nest.
What a fabulous experience and we received a friendly warm welcome as soon as we arrived. The barman poured us great g&ts and we sat on horse saddle bar stools at the bar, which was great fun.

Food was excellent especially the scallop starter. The ambience was lovely. We had a table overlooking the prettily lit outside patio.

Would definitely recommend this restaurant

Having said they would give drinks on the terrace nobody came as promised.
Having eaten here many times under the old management we were very disappointed with the menu. 2 references to KFC????
Do I want to eat KFC when I’m paying over £200 for two for dinner?? The waitress could not explain what this was, just a vague “spices” The connotation was off putting.
A burger?? Perhaps in the bar but not in the restaurant but it seems the menu applies everywhere. A mistake.
No vegetables on side order on menu “ oh sorry we sold them all yesterday at lunchtime” 😳
A disappointing experience and a great shame to see the decline. The food was ok but not to the level charged.

We revisited as we had stayed a couple of years ago and loved the food and views.
We were not disappointed. The food and service were excellent but surprisingly it was very quiet. Maybe because it was Monday lunchtime?
Service was very friendly and engaged.
The venison was delicious as was the light/dark chocolate dessert with cherries.

Stunning location with spectacular views. Delicious food. Whilst staff were very friendly they could have been more attentive - we had to chase up for desert and more drinks. However a minor drawback - would still highly recommend.

We came to this restaurant on recommendation. The views around this lovely place is stunning. We were looking forward to enjoying a drink in the garden where there are swing seating looking over the Cotswolds. They greeted us and give us the drink menu. After 25 mins we were still waiting to asked what drinks we would like. My husband had go an ask eventually we got our drinks but just took the edge of the experience. Thankfully once seated the food was very nice indeed my only disappointment was I was looking forward to halibut shown on website but had been changed to brill. I hadn’t tried this fish before it was very nice. The flavours combinations were delicious. Just a note to chef re goats curd and tomato starter more goats curd please tiny amount was lost on this dish. Overall we enjoyed the meal and the surroundings are beautiful. Lovely ending to our Cotswolds holiday

Amazing food, staff were all lovely although a little too formal for us personally. The service was extremely slow which was frustrating as we were the only ones there for a while and the more important people seemed to be getting served first and got lots of attention. Won’t be returning but I will say the food was incredible and couldn’t fault it.

Lovely place, great setting. The menu was very limited resulting in a difficult selection process for both my guest and I. As a result, no starters were selected and a main was ordered but would not have been our natural first choice. A shame as it is a lovely place. The DP champagne was good though. Not sure I would eat there again but would visit for drinks.

Sadly we visited on the day Chef pinged so although staff apologised and brought extra drinks etc our one course lunch took two hrs as obviously couldnt cope. Think it would have been better to have the option to go elsewhere instead of waiting so long. Beef was very rare so assume they had to cook the beef there and then.
Food was ok but not the standard expected.
The waiting staff were great.
I would recommend not visiting on a busy Sunday!

The food did not meet expectations and it was very expensive.
The pork belly portion was incredibly small considering it was£30.
The children pasta valued @ £10 was not home made and tasted overcooked.
The burgers were good but again overly priced.
