Tucked away in the sprawling valleys of the Cotswolds, resting by a roaring fire and surrounded by the promise of culinary excellence and the temptation of some of the world's leading wines, is a table reserved for you and your loved ones.
It’s been a long year, but Adam Taylor from The Feathered Nest Inn, sees only good times ahead as he shares what adventures wait for you at this beloved country inn:
1. A night of wine, warmth, and laughter
The dog-friendly, rustic pub is the ideal place to catch up with loved ones, laugh, and be merry. Relax by the fire, or saddle up at the bar, atop one of the leather stools made from horse saddles.
Sip on local ales, like Hooky, or treat yourself to a cocktail. Live music from local artists will keep you entertained, and our staff’s warm welcome will instantly make you feel at home.
2. Enjoy an evening of fine dining
It’s probably been a while since you’ve been with your nearest and dearest, so why not make a night of it and book a table at our critically acclaimed three AA Rosette restaurant?
Our amazing kitchen team, led by Head Chef Matt Weedon and Rene Pinedo, can prepare a host of delectable British dishes, using fresh, locally sourced produce. Sample our six-course tasting menu, along with our selection of handpicked pub classics and rare wines.
For the Alfresco diners amongst us, there’s the newly covered, well-heated terrace, boasting panoramic views of the Cotswolds. For those a little less optimistic about the British weather, there’s the choice between the sun-filled garden room or more formal restaurant.

4. Escape to the country
The Inn is ideally located to explore the best of the Cotswolds. Stay in one of the four king-size or double rooms above the pub and enjoy the country walks, biking routes, and horse-riding opportunities right on our doorstep. The Oxfordshire and Diamond Way footpaths are less than a mile away, and ideal for hikers looking to make the most of the outdoors.
Each room comes with an en-suite and has everything you need for a tranquil getaway. Kick back with a complimentary gin and tonic, homemade cookies, and make use of the full range of Bramley bath and body products while enjoying the breath-taking views.
From June, you can stay in our newly built dog-friendly cottage. It’s private and you’ll enjoy setting your own pace for the day. The cottage comes with a kitchen, large bedroom, and modern bathroom. It’s great for a couple or small family.
5. Plan the intimate wedding you’ve always dreamed of
To help make your special day perfect, we offer an exclusive wedding package. You’ll have private access to our four luxurious rooms, the garden, and bar areas. We offer private dining options to cater for your wedding, possess a full wedding license, and have space for up to 80 guests.
We’ll tailor every element of the day to suit you and can make planning your wedding simple and stress-free. Our extensive garden and terrace look out over the vast, rolling greenery of the Cotswolds and will provide a stunning, romantic backdrop to make your big day unforgettable.
