The Wild Rabbit is a modern British inn – a place to eat, drink and sleep. Set in the heart of the Cotswolds, we serve locally sourced, seasonal food in a relaxed and welcoming setting. Enjoy an apertif by the fire place, or a glass of wine from our impressive cellar selection. Ask our bartenders to recommend the latest addition to our gin selection. Our beautifully bright, spacious Dining Room enjoys the added theatre of an open kitchen, where Head Chef Nathan Eades and his team can be viewed painstakingly preparing some seasonal delights. often fresh from Daylesford's larder. The best way to enjoy the fruits of their labour is the delectable Tasting Menu and wine pairing, selected especially by our Sommelier. Of course, if you want to fully indulge, you can reserve a luxurious bedroom upstairs.

    Had a lovely birthday meal at the Wild Rabbit. The food was delicious and the meal was special with all the little touches like the canapes and surprise birthday plate. The only thing that let it down was the waiter that took our order did not tell us about the specials - we only realised there were specials when the table next to us had them.

    We have been wanting to visit the Wild Rabbit for ages so using our 2nd anniversary seemed like the perfect opportunity. We went with high expectations and it didn't disappoint. The service and food was excellent and the atmosphere equally matched. Cant wait for a return visit. Ben

    If I hadn’t been before I wouldn’t return based on this visit. We opted for the tasting menu with wine pairings and it took forever! Way too much time in between courses. Food was well prepared but the skate was full of bones...not enjoyable at all. Wines selected were nice but not overly generous for the price. There was a definite breakdown in communication with server. Couldn’t really understand her describing any of the dishes. Asked for the check at the end and she brought a card for a taxi. The ambience is always great and the sommelier was very charming. Will give it another go at some point but don’t be rushing back.

    Quintessential Cotswolds experience with cozy atmosphere, attentive servers, carefully crafted local food, and exquisite wine selection. We took our children along and they appreciated the children’s menu (which was very reasonably priced). Each course improved upon the previous one (which I thought would be impossible) and culminated in an incredible dessert selection. I can’t spend that much every time I go out to eat, but it was worth every penny.

    We called ahead to let the staff know we were going to arrive 10 minutes after our 2 PM reservation. While I was parking the car, they essentially made my wife order all of our food before 2:15 or we wouldn’t have been sent home so I had no idea what food was coming. They rushed us through our entire meal and we were out before 2 other families that were seated before us. The food was good but as much as we paid for it, it would have been nice to enjoy it.

    We’ve gone for a tasting menu on a Sunday lunch. Starter and main courses were ok but nothing we would crave to go back for. Desserts were very good. Service poor, unnatentive an unprofessional. Wouldn’t go back. Not what you expect when you pay a bill of nearly £200 for 2. Shame because the place looks very pleasant!

    Yes I would recommend the Wild Rabbit to a friend. We would preferred to have sat outside as it was such a beautiful day. We were disappointed that this was not possible. We were also disappointed that the cote du Bouef was not chargrilled as mentioned on menu. It was roasted. However the apologies were made and we were offered a drink of our choice from the wine menu. They went out of their way to rectify the situation. We would definitely go back but would probably eat from the other menu which alot cheaper but very similar.

    Really lovely setting, great decor (and we had lovely weather so opted to sit and eat outside). Service was great - staff are so welcoming and helpful. We ate from the bar menu (rather than the main restaurant) and it was lovely, but I was expecting to be wowed a little more. Could tell that quality ingredients were used and dishes are kept simple, but I couldn’t taste the seasoning on the chilli think our expectations had just been set a little high from all the positives we’d already heard

    Beautiful location, amazing ambience and experience. The staff were friendly and helpful but the food lacked depth and flavour. The table was for a party of 4 and we all had the tasting menu. Would recommend a visit but maybe consider ordering dishes next time rather than the set tasting menu. A nice evening

    The food and service were outstanding. The food was delicious and the staff serving made the whole experience very memorable. The restaurant was beautifully laid out and furnished and the adjacent tables were not too close. The only slight downside for me was the men's toliet - a lot water on the floor which looked like something was leaking and they looked like they could do with a liitle bit of maintenance. Sounds picky, but it took a slight gloss of what was otherwise a wonderful experience.
