The Wild Rabbit
Choose from an eclectic mix of bar snacks to include homemade black pudding with bubble and squeak and fresh eggs laid up the road on LB"s Daylesford Farm.
In what has to be one of the most charming dining rooms, Michelin Starred Tim Allen and his team are very much on show in this open kitchen. A seasonally changing menu which highlight such dishes as Cornish Mackerel two ways, forced rhubarb, turnip and horseradish, dill buttermilk. The desserts will not disappoint and if you are to full to leave why not just collapse in one of the glorious bedrooms upstairs?
The most amazing food, great service and a wonderful atmosphere!
We had a fabulous lunchtime with friends. The setting was delightful, the food was really delicious and we were looked after by a team of friendly and charming professionals. We particularly liked Norbert and his vast knowledge of wines from around the world.
We can only make one constructive criticism and that was the restaurant was far too hot. Whilst the fireplace looked amazing the heat from it was overpowering in conjunction with the underfloor heating. Once we moved to a table further away from the fire however we were far more comfortable.
We overheard other customers complain about the heat from the fire too.
Go steady with the flames 🔥
See you again soon
A stunning restaurant, we very much enjoyed our food, and the service was attentive and friendly.
Great food and great service in a lovely atmosphere, provided you are happy to pay the price.
Amazing food, glorious wine and wonderful atmosphere! Norbert the sommelier was bang on !
Wild Rabbit on top form ! Back very very soon !
We met up with friends and Kingham was a good location to meet for lunch. It is our first visit to the Wild Rabbit and it certainly will not be our last. We enjoyed the tasting menu. The food was imaginative and very good. We spent a very pleasant 4 hours eating, drinking and talking.
Awful service and even worse food. Ordered two beef roasts to find out the meat comes rare or well done. I don’t like meat that has a strong iron taste so I had to get well done which was like leather. Not good for a £25 roast. The service was slow and to top it off they ran out of Yorkshire puddings which I could see everyone around us leaving. I didn’t know there’d be a shortage of flour and eggs at a restaurant.. I asked for my coat back (a £1200 ski jacket) to get a wallet from the pocket to be questioned about a coat ticket which we never got - obviously making my heart sink. They then said they’d compensate for the lack of Yorkshire pud to which we got ‘extra greens’ - our portion looked no bigger than anyone else’s. Made a long drive out here and honestly disgusted at the price for what we got. Nothing on the White Spoon. Bought this with our Christmas money as a treat and it was just a waste of money. Thoroughly regret paying the service charge but couldn’t wait to get out of there. Then the waitress charges me an extra £30 because she input the wrong amount.... Will never ever come here again.
Food and Service were exceptional.
Our second visit, previously outdoors in summer. This time for five at Sunday lunch in January. This is a place which does not quite come together well. We were early and served at first promptly, but the level of attention fell off sharply and in the end we were waiting a long time for service. The service had too much attention to pouring drinks and not enough to promptly taking orders and clearing. The food is disappointing for the price. Roast sirloin was a curious purple red, showed little sign of roasting and had little flavour. Desserts were better, and coffe and tea good, but perhaps welcome given the waiting time. Ambience OK, feels a bit soulless, but nothing that good service levels could not compensate. Noise levels are fine. Perhaps it appeals to the wealthy foreign tourist.
As always, the most fabulous service and food. This is our second visit and we will definitely be back again. Wish there was more room to sit in the bar for drinks, as could happily spend all day soaking up the atmosphere. Demand for rooms is super high and we havent managed to book into to stay yet, but will keep trying.
Fantastic food and great staff. We would highly recommend.
Excellent lunch at the Wild Rabbit. Lovely fresh vegetables and delicious ribeye steak. Very atmospheric over Christmas. Will be back!
Simply a fantastic experience.
Wonderful pub, welcoming bar with roaring fires and friendly staff. Restaurant is incredible, with a lot of locally sourced options on the menu.
Wine selection is to die for however most options are very expensive.
Brilliant meal there and so kind to my wife for her birthday meal!
Absolutely fantastic on all counts! Planning our next visit already. Thank you for the wonderful table, service, food and setting!
We haven't been to the Wild Rabbit for a while, but it was better than before, especially the service. I also really like the generous size of the tables!
Had the most wonderful, relaxed lunch.
The food was fantastic, we had the tasting menu, it was great! We went for my mums 50th birthday and they added some extra special touches which were lovely. We would definitely recommend.
FANTASTIC FOOD, WINE AND GREAT SERVICE, COULD NOT FAULT
Absolutely first class. Service is exceptional and the food is superb. Will visit again
Staff were very attentive, food was lovely, atmosphere was perfect. Lovely experience, if a little expensive for what food we ate. Would definitely go back if we are ever in the Cotswolds.
Food was really poorly seasoned and the meals were not up to expectation.
The food was outstanding. I was with my wife and adult daughter for a late lunch. The Sommelier was very knowledgeable and helpful. The menu was small but perfect. The flavors were fantastic. We had a wonderful time!
Excellent restaurant, good food, well presented and the service was superb
The only negative was one of the waiters over filled the wine glasses - a good burgundy should have no more than 1 to 2 centimetres of wine poured into the glass. Otherwise excellent food , great service
Loved my food. Came in for lunch and had fish. The servers were very attentive, nice, not overly aggressive. I would recommend anything on the menu.
We used to love this restaurant when it largely operated as a steak grill. This is our second visit since it gained its Michelin star. The food was seriously disappointing - the chef has altered the menu to offer a tasting menu or a la carte. We opted for the a la carte but found it very difficult to choose from the starters. We were brought an amuse bouche to begin with: 5 different types of vegetables (a leaf from each) with a dipping sauce - indeed laughable. Contrast that with Le Manoir's amuse bouche, enjoyed 4 days earlier - 3 scallops in a delicious sauce. My husband chose cheese dumplings in an onion broth - one soft piece of tasteless sludge in a burnt gravy. I chose trout tartare which was acceptable if tasteless. I had a cod with fish pie as my main - the fish pie lacked substance but the cod was fine. My husband had plaice which was tasteless but acceptable. The helpings were undersized. The service was intrusive with a number of underworked servers monitoring our every mouthful. We couldn't wait to leave so skipped dessert!
Thanks for the meal - lovely food but service could have been friendly. Very expensive but probably worth it.
Food was over priced and the service was really slow. However the pub itself is beautiful. Would only return for the coffee.
Messed up drink order. No silver ware on table. No S & P on table and too 12 minutes to find. No water refills. Unedible steak. No soap in men’s room after 5 times telling management. Disappointed after visiting Daylesford Farm shop.
Lovely food and ambience, service not very friendly at all... half an hour wait for a spoon...
Lovely local gastropub. The interiors were cosy and welcoming. Staff friendly. Food was seasonal and comforting.
Would recommend for a Sunday lunch in the countryside.
Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our evening dinner. Food was delicious, service was attentive, and location was quintessential Cotswolds! Our first visit, and we will definitely make a point of coming back on our next visit through the English countryside. One minor critique would be that the lighting was not as dim as we would have liked, and were told that the lights would be dimmed but they never were (maybe it’s not possible). But this very minor detail didn’t detract from the overall 5-star rating we are leaving.
Superb cooking in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
The most wonderful place! Fabulous village - amazing food- excellent staff.
Would love to have Christmas lunch there- they have to feed the guests of the inn first- hopefully they will let locals join in!
Stayed overnight with my husband and dinner and breakfast were really good. Seasonal, imaginative and delicious food in a beautiful setting.
Great location, great service - fabulous food. Fantastic Evening, Thank you
