Rectory Hotel

Drudwell, Malmesbury (Nr.), Wiltshire, SN16 9EP
What was a Cotswold rectory, parts dating from the 16th century, is now a delightful restaurant/hotel on the road between Cirencester and Chippenham. It’s set in 3 acres of gardens, beside the village church.

The dining room is divided into an wood-panelled area and an airy conseratory, overlooking the garden.

Chef, Peter Fairclough has carefully sourced the produce for his menu – much of it local, and some organic.

So expect the likes of ‘Salad of Cerney Goats’ Cheese and Walnuts with Pea Shoots and a Pear and Walnut Dressing’; ‘Coln Valley Smoked Salmon with a Champ Potato Cake, Poached Egg and Hollandaise’ and ‘Soused Mackerel’ among the starters.

Maybe ‘Chump of Welsh Lamb with Glazed Fondant Potatoes, Wilted Spinach and a Rosemary Jus’ and ‘Cornish Cod with a Herb Crust and Tomato Risotto’ among the mains.

Desserts can sound very British, with perhaps ‘Pimm’s Jelly with Poached Peaches and Vanilla Ice Cream’; ‘Elderberry-Scented Berry Trifle’ and ‘Eton Mess’ among summer offerings.

Farmhouse cheeses are another temptation.

There’s a Menu Rapide (for those in a hurry), plus interesting choices for children.
