Visited this wonderful restaurant during a long weekend away. Completely exceeded our expectations.
Firstly, the service was first class. Then the food............blew us away.
The attention to detail was the first thing we noticed, everything had been prepared and presented with the utmost care.
Secondly, the quality of the dishes was second to none. The chef deserves a Michelin star, serving up generous portions too at very reasonable prices.
The ambience was magical, right by the river.
The staff put the cherry on the cake, they really looked like they enjoyed their work.
Hardly surprising as they were receiving so many compliments.
Well done to all of you!

Very friendly hotel in the centre of town, we wanted to have diner here but the kitchen was closed for deep cleaning. Breakfast was excellent, you won't go hungry with the amount they give you, a set menu with lots of choice.

Recently risked a quick take away hatte despite the less than flattering reviews (1 star hygiene rating for example!).
Because of this, we didn't order much and tried to avoid too much meat to minimise risk of getting ill. (see review below mine!).
The vegetable fried rice we ordered was pretty dire and tasted of msg. The crispy chilli beef dish was actually OK though.
We didn't eat in the restaurant but from what we could see it didn't have much of an atmosphere. The only people in there were the local nevs waiting for their takeaway. Wouldn't go back to be honest.

We roast all our own beans on site, and we are passionate about the coffees, teas, milkshakes, smoothies, hot chocolates and cakes that we sell. We don't serve food as such, but feel free to bring in your own Sandwich, we don't mind at all. Good dogs always welcome....
We came for breakfast and coffee. We were surprised by the multi-level tea and coffee rooms. there are multiple floors with small, cozy rooms to sip your beverage and have some privacy. The coffee was good and free wifi.Hi Meagan Thanks for your review Ali and the team

100 yds from corner of Sherbourne Street and High St
We hesitated to go in as the bar was packed with mainly young people! However we were shown through to the dining area which was quiet and tastefully decorated. We wanted a smaller portion meal and this wa served quickly and efficiently.mpleasant experience

The Croft restaurant is situated next to the beautiful River Windrush in the heart of Bourton on the Water.Serving excellent local cuisine, from our delicious breakfasts through to fabulous evening meals, be sure to come and find us.
This restaurant has one of the best locations in one of the prettiest Cotswold villages, overlooking the picturesque stream in the middle of the village. We were lucky enough to get the corner table with double aspect overlooking the water. Lunch was relatively simple but delicious -- a very good burger made from local mince and an excellent bakery bun, an excellent omelette, and perfectly good ham and eggs -- all served with lovely chunky chips. The house wine was also good and reasonably priced. Desserts of local homemade ice cream and sticky toffee pudding were very good, although one of us thought the sauce for the toffee pudding was a bit too sweet. Not a major issue, however. I suspect that this place would be very crowded in the summer months, though plenty of Seating inside and out seemed available. There is a parking lot a short walk away by the model village site.

Our tea Room and Licensed Bistro is located adjacent to the River Windrush in the beautiful Cotswolds village of Bourton-on-the-Water which has been described as the 'Little Venice' of the Cotswolds and is one of the most popular tourist spots in the region. Famous for its cream, afternoon and celebration teas along with superb breakfasts, lunches, snacks, cakes, pastries and ice creams, The Chestnut Tree looks forward to welcoming you on your next visit. During the summer you can take tea on our private lawn adjacent to the river Windrush or maybe enjoy an ice cream or seasonal fruit from our take away kiosk.
Friendly waitress seated us and took order promptly. Wife had jacket potato with cheese, only downside was butter came separately and spud was full of cheese already. No big deal but got it sorted. . I had an egg and Mayo baguette which was lovely too with a side bowl of chips. Pot of tea for 2 completed a nice lunch. Overall nice.

We are an owner operated traditional tearoom. Much of our menu is made here on the premises, including Soups, Dressings, Sauces, Jams and of course all of our cakes and scones.We make everything from basic ingredients, not pre prepared mixes.Our coffee and tea is Fairtrade. The coffee is freshly ground and we use loose leaf tea, with the exception of herbal teas. We aim to source our produce locally as we believe in supporting local suppliers where possible.We also provide a wide selection of Gluten Free meals, including homemade Gluten Free scones, so a cream tea can be had by everyone!Vegetarian options are always available. We are visited by many customers time and time again, along with strong support from locals who live in the town. Regular hours are 10am to 4.00pm (5pm Saturdays). Please note we are closed on Sundays and Thursdays.
Lovely lunch, the tearoom was full all the time we were there,with a great turnover of customers. My daughter had spicy vegetable soup with brie and cranberry Sandwich and I really enjoyed my jacket potato with coronation chicken and a lovely salad.
Always good service and a friendly atmosphere. We shall be back next time we meet at Stow, our midway point.
Congratulations, Jeanne M.Watkins.

Lucy's Tearoom is a traditional english tearoom and coffee shop who pride themselves on high quality, local produce. From home cooked all day breakfasts, to delicious light lunches, to freshly baked scones and cakes, there is something for everyone. Sit in our bay window with a fresh coffee for a spot of people watching, or by our fireplace with a bowl of homemade soup, or in our courtyard tea garden with a 'Stow Special Cream Tea' served on a tiered cake stand- it is your choice!
What a treat. Four of us squeezed on to a small table for a light lunch on our way to the Pudding Club in Mickleton. Two of us had soup and a roll, one Welsh Rarebit on crumpets and a BLT toasted sarnie. We all agreed it was delicious and very sensibly priced.
