Despite it being a cold, rainy day, we thoroughly enjoyed our al-fresco lunch. Fleecy rugs kept us warm along with a few outdoor heaters. Service was excellent. My husband's pudding came before the rest, which seemed a bit odd, and we were then told that it should have gone to a neighbouring table, who had ordered the same, so there were apologies all round. When the rest of our puddings came they brought my husband another one so that he wouldn't feel left out which we thought was a very nice touch. And yes, he ate it.

Wonderful food, fabulous, friendly service with a stunning view.

Top class dining with a very unpretentious setting and atmosphere. Cannot wait to eat there again. It’s an hour from my house, but worth every mile of the drive when you know what is at the finishing post :-) Thank you

Absolutely my favourite pub in the Cotswolds. Great person service, beautiful setting, delicious great-quality food. One of the best outside dining experiences we’ve had, heaters, blankets, protected area. Pricey but worth it!

Extortionately priced
At near £30 for halibut main it was frankly overcooked particularly for what is a firm fish
The side dishes £7-8 each were mean and not for sharing.You finish up paying almost £45 for your main - crazy particularly when service casual and haphazard and lacking situation awareness
I would not return as there are many excellent gastro pubs in the area with quality food at a reasonable price

Visited on a sunny day in April for lunch but sadly all diners had to sit under a shaded canopy which didn't offer any of the warmth from the sun so we were all wrapped in blankets trying to keep warm. It was so frustrating that diners couldn't sit out on the grass area reserved for drinkers which would have made it a much more pleasurable experience.

Our mains were good, desserts less so and when I commented on this to our waitress she wasn't concerned one bit.

The quality of the food was high and the setting is wonderful but there were aspects of the service which should have been better at the price charged, e.g. part of drink order was forgotten although a free drink was eventually provided and generally a disorganised service.

Very, very slow service. Told in response to allergy question that one of our party had a nut allergy, and their dessert appeared with ... nuts, not mentioned on the menu. Staff heard arguing among themselves. Shame cos the food was very good.

We dine at the Feathered Nest twice a year for birthday celebrations. It has always been a memorable dining experience. Our visit this year was excellent, the service was a bit slow but I'm assuming post lockdown that a lot of the staff, although very pleasant , were new to the job. Overall excellent as usual

Came for a birthday meal. The setting was beautiful, first time visiting. Can really appreciate the effort that was made for reopening- outdoor space was gorgeous. A few things let our experience down, both our fish was over cooked which was not enjoyable, the heating under the gazebo was only on one side so meant for a VERY cold evening. Blankets were provided but just wasn’t enough. Asked to move at the start but was not able to accommodate- just one of those things at the moment unfortunately. Just think that when your paying a 3 figure bill you really do want to leave knowing it was worth it.
Will definitely return, the service was wonderful and the canapés were a great touch also. x

We always have a pre Christmas lunch here as it’s such a beautiful restaurant with great service.
We missed the roast potatoes and parsnips this year hence four starts not five other than that it was lovely.

We acknowledge that times are hard; but we felt that the food was expensive; particularly for the very simplest of dishes.
Nevertheless it was delicious.

Despite all the current challenges we had a wonderful evening in the most stunning setting. The staff were delightful and very attentive and the food - we had the tasting menu- was truly memorable. We were assisted in choosing a suitable wine, which proved an excellent accompaniment to the delicious dinner.
We have already booked a birthday stay with dinner for next April and we can’t wait to return.

Our first time at The Feathered Nest and sadly quite disappointed. Perhaps expectations were set too high. They gave some lovely complimentary starters and the scallop dish was great however main course options were not that appealing and were quite average. No lamb or lobster as per the online sample menus. A vegetarian main dish at £30 seemed very steep. Service was patchy- sometimes fantastic or just not great at all depending on whose attention you caught. Dessert menu was offered very late and by then it was time to get the bill. Expected a lot more in terms of service and options for the price.

Warm welcome, very attentive service and superb food. The menu was better than the one on the website and a great wine list from reasonable ‘by the glass’ right up to £££ fine wines. Our third visit here and we will definitely be back. Staff did a great job under the current circumstances too.

The food was outstanding. The only slight criticism would be that the service was sometimes a little slow. i.e. we were waiting a little while for side dishes to accompany courses, when they should have been brought out at the same time as the main dish, or shortly afterwards. Only slight niggle though, otherwise very good indeed.
