At Birchall Tea we pride ourselves on delivering teas of exceptional quality and flavour. Only the best ingredients and production techniques are used to create our blends. It was these great values that we were looking for when selecting our favourite restaurants in the Cotswolds.

All our featured restaurants have those values at their heart. Sourcing the best local produce and a dedication to creating dishes of great flavour, is a mantra that runs through them all. The Cotswolds boasts some of the finest restaurants in the UK. We urge you to give them a try!

The Five Alls country Pub and Restaurant, Filkins 

A wonderfully welcoming country pub set in the picturesque Cotswolds village of Filkins. Head chef, Sebastian Snow, pays great attention to meticulously sourcing high quality, seasonal ingredients from a wide variety of Cotswolds’ artisan producers when creating his monthly-changing à la carte menu of generous and earthy ‘turf to table’ dishes with Italian influences reflecting Sebastian’s upbringing. Look out for our wonderful food inspiration coming from the Five Alls, next week.

Heritage and luxury effortlessly combine to create a quintessential home away from home. Located in the heart of English countryside and just minutes from Bath, Lucknam Park is the perfect place to enjoy fine dining at the Michelin starred Park restaurant.

Ellenborough Park

A sumptuous Cotswold manor house hotel situated on the outskirts of Cheltenham Spa. The main house of the estate dates back to the 15th Century, when it was erected from iconic Cotswold stone, steeping the manor in layers of history and intriguing tales. Modern British influences and discreet service characterise the experience in the Cheltenham restaurant, we recommend indulging in the delicious three-course dining experience or their traditional Sunday Lunch. They also offer a fabulous afternoon tea.
