Compiling a list of our favourite Cotswold restaurants was like being asked to choose our favourite child – we love them all. No two are alike. Each has a personality of its own, and that’s what makes them so wonderfully unique. It doesn’t help that dining, in many ways, is like art – it’s subjective.
