Has anyone had tea at Cotswold Cottage? I'm wondering about the quality of the sandwiches and pastries. Thanks for any info!

    My parents ate there recently and said the food was good, but overpriced for what it was.

      We were there recently and were told the Cotswold Cottage does not serve tea in the winter. We stopped in at Eagle Tavern instead and thought it was fun and cozy. Only had a beverage and a slice of apple butter custard pie (like pumpkin pie but flavored with apple butter instead) that was quite good.

        Yeah, the Eagle Tavern is far and away the best food in the Village, although it might not be quite what you're looking for. It is definitely a one-of-a-kind place. Granted, I haven't eaten there in a while, but it's a wonderfully cozy place in the fall/winter.

        Yes, the food quality is top notch. The food is made fresh and the scones are wonderful. The flower garden adds to the atmosphere. Highly recommend that you go and have a wonderful tea there! :)

          The Cotswald cottage does not serve food in the winter because the Village is not open in the winter. Only the museum.
          The Cottswald is a fantastic spot for tea or finger sandwhiches. It is not over priced.
          All the food at The Village and the museum is pretty darn good. The chef there works with local farmers so it's a very nice departure from what many might expect.
          There is a small southern restaurant at the train station called Mrs. Fishers Southern Cooking. The Catfish and the BBQ there is VERY good.
          Don't pass up a real frozen custard at the custard stand on a warm day.
