James Martin is launching GRILL and TAVERN at The Lygon Arms, Worcestershire

The Lygon Arms, in picturesque Broadway, is launching two new dining experiences spearheaded by chef James Martin – GRILL, unveiled in February; and TAVERN, opening in March.

Set to become two of the most sought-after restaurants in the Cotswolds, the venues follow in the footsteps of James Martin’s phenomenal success at The Lygon Arms’ sister hotel in Hampshire, Chewton Glen

Under the roof of a striking, romantic hall with a dramatic vaulted ceiling, GRILL will naturally evolve over time; however, signature dishes will include Thai-spiced Cornish crab risotto, and Laverstoke buffaloumi with confit roscoff onion, chilli jam and treviso.

Straight off the grill, guests will be able to choose ‘Market Fish of the Day – Your Way’, plus ribeye, sirloin or fillet steak with a selection of sauces and truffled jus. Additional main dishes will consist of Cotswolds lamb shank; middle white pork chop with all-butter mash, apple sauce, gravy and roasted hispi cabbage; or a delicious beetroot and feta Wellington. 

A relaxed and comfortable space, TAVERN will be the place to spend a few hours grazing on simple food, enjoying a glass of real ale, and relaxing with the newspapers. The menu will feature nibbles and grazing dishes, perfectly in keeping with the the 600-year-old coaching inn, such as The Lygon sausage roll, hot pork ie, and Cotswold ploughman’s. 

As well as regularly visiting The Lygon Arms and working with Ales Maurer, James will also be hosting ‘Dinners with James Martin’. These will take over the whole restaurant for a five- or six-course tasting menu with matching wines. James also has plans to bring some of his fellow celebrity chefs and their culinary creativity to The Lygon Arms.
