The Little Black Book: Restaurants

  • The Castle at Edgehill

    Muddy says: This imposing castle manages to combine elegance with a casual, relaxed vibe and is a great venue for drinks, eating out and your ‘I do’ moment.

  • Stoke Park Spa

    Muddy says: Vanity Fair called Stoke Park’s spa one of the ‘four Must Visit spas in the world’ and I’m not going to argue with that judgement – the five star facilities and relaxed, luxe vibe make it a dead cert for a perfect spa day.

  • The Fuzzy Duck, Armscote

    Muddy says: This elegant inn and B&B won Best Boutique Stay in the Muddy Awards 2017 & 208 (Warks). Excellent food and thoughtful touches, including Hunter wellies to borrow.

  • The Kitchen, Farnborough

    Muddy says: The Kitchen is a stylish country pub with a Savoy and Dorchester trained owner/chef, set in pretty countryside on the Oxon/Warcs borders.

  • The Townhouse, Stratford-upon-Avon

    Muddy says: Refurbished restaurant with 12 bedrooms and a lively cocktail bar in the centre of historic Stratford-upon-Avon opposite Shakespeare's Schoolroom.

  • The High Field, Edgbaston, Birmingham

    Muddy says: An award-winning buzzing bar & gastropub, elegant places to eat overlooking a leafy garden and glamorous private rooms for meetings and celebrations.

  • The Star & Garter, Leamington Spa

    Muddy says: A great Leamington local with a new breakfast menu. Behind its imposing Victorian frontage is a spacious, welcoming bar and eatery.

  • The Almanack, Kenilworth

    Muddy says: Pub it with the family or private dine with friends in super-stylish interiors - think parquet floors, red leather booths and chic Tom Dixon mesh bar lighting.

  • BELMOND LE MANOIR AUX QUAT’SAISONS

    Muddy says: Raymond's Blanc's pitch-perfect Oxfordshire institution needs no introduction. Thirty years of two Michelin stars, beautiful kitchen gardens and top-tier gastronomie: Le Manoir is Muddy's go-to for special occasions.

  • The George Townhouse, Shipston-on-Stour

    Muddy says: A beautifully restored Georgian pub with rooms, re-opened in April 2016. Feels like popping into a very stylish friend's house and staying in one of her 15 bedrooms!
