Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire - any restaurants?

Jenny Sheridan Jul 3, 2006 03:28 PM

I'm taking my partner to Tewkesbury for his birthday. We'll be staying for three days. Does anyone know of any good restaurants or pubs either in the town or within easy driving distance? Ideally modern - or even old-fashioned - English food. But other interesting cooking also welcome.
There doesn't seem to be anything in the restaurant guides. Have I chosen a beautiful food desert?

    One of the UK's finest restaurants, Le Champignon Sauvage, is in Cheltenham-about a dozen miles away.

      Thanks, Tony, we had a really delicous and interesting meal. Roast langoustines with belly of Gloucester Old Spot, peanuts, pea puree and peashoots was one high spot. Also the pre-dessert of rose geranium creme brulee with space dust. But the whole dinner was lovely, and the wine list was very reasonable.

        The Churchill Arms in Paxford near Chipping Camden does very nice pub food.
