A perennial favourite with us, and many Cotswolds residents, Daylesford Organic in Kingham is not just a great coffee stop - come for the local, organic produce served in the cafe, restaurant and bakery but stay for the restorative Bamford spa, modern country interiors inspiration and creative workshops and day retreats. A great local institution for a reason.
Temple Guiting Pantry
There's a great 1.5hr circular walk around the grounds of Temple Guiting Manor itself, ending conveniently at the front door of the Temple Guiting Pantry where you can refuel with their local produce focussed menus, from breakfast all the way through to afternoon tea.
Lynwood & Co
With cafes in Burford, Lechlade, Fairford and Carterton - this mini, independent chain of cafes have a really lovely, cosy vibe. Super friendly service with a great selection of cakes and local produce.
Pretty & Pip
New kid on the block, Pretty & Pip opened last year in Cirencester and is already proving a popular spot for coffee and cake. The secret garden, complete with beautiful wall art is perfect when the sun shines.
Bakery on the Water
The family run, artisan bakery, Bakery on the Water in Bourton on the Water is situated alongside the idyllic river Windrush. A great favourite with locals, the fourth-generation of bakers know a thing or two about a good loaf, and a great coffee too.
The Market Pantry
The Market Pantry in Broadway is a fab stop off not just for their homemade cake and local produce, but they have a fab homeware edit, too.
Blockley Village Shop & Cafe
Blockley Village Shop and Cafe sits in the heart of the village, arguably one of the most beautiful villages in The Cotswolds. Well-stocked and with something to please everyone, it is well-worth a visit.

The Old Prison
Quite literally a transformed former prison in Northleach, you can explore the old courtroom and cells whilst getting your morning caffeine fix. A quirky cafe with an amazing history, great for capturing the imagination of little ones!
The perfect mix of ‘hip meets homely’ there are eclectic furnishings mixed with country classic Farrow & Ball palettes and historic exposed stone walls and characterful beamed ceilings, plus the obligatory handsome fireplace at its heart. Offering sustenance all the way through from breakfast to dinner, it’s a great option for a weekend brunch, or Sunday roast. There are innovative modern takes on British pub classics, as well as great, sociable sharing options and a family friendly kids’ menu, too.
The Ebrington Arms
Awarded The Good Pub Guide's ‘County Dining Pub of the Year 2019’, the beamed-ceilings, high-backed wooden booths, wood-burning stove and authentic flagstone floor offer a cosy and inviting interior. Sourcing many of their organic ingredients from local suppliers and brewing their own ales in-house, this local favourite is a great destination for foodies and families alike.
The Victoria - East Leach
The Victoria, a pretty honey-stoned pub in East Leach is a stone’s throw from the market town of Burford and riverside town of Lechlade, yet is the perfect, quintessential rural country pub – the terrace to the front is a real sun-trap in the summer, but it is the cosy window seats and rib-warming Sunday roast that draw the crowds in winter months. Locally sourced meats are served with all the trimmings, with a well-priced children’s menu to keep the little ones happy, too.
The Plough in Cold Aston
The Plough in Cold Aston is run by young couple Tom and Josie; with 2 small children of their own, they know a thing or two about creating a warm, welcoming atmosphere for all generations. With a charcoal-fuelled oven in the kitchen, head chef Jonathon Grey can really bring to life the flavours in their locally sourced meat and fresh fish.
