The Churchill Arms, Paxford

The Churchill Arms, Paxford

I’m reliably informed that I am missing out on great new lunch menu at The Churchill Arms in Paxford.

My sources are usually spot on when it comes to Cotswold dining and as this is one of the places that my husband and I once ‘courted’ on our Sunday afternoon jaunts around the Cotswolds, I am definitely overdue a visit. So, I have booked a lunch table to enjoy on the return from our holiday and I can’t wait to see what the new menu has in store for us.

Head Chef and Proprietor Nick Deverell-Smith has over 15 year’s experience working in award-winning restaurants across the country. After working locally at top restaurants like Simpsons in Kenilworth and Mallory Court and then in London under Gordon Ramsay, Marcus Wareing, and most influentially Eric Chavot, The Churchill Arms’ menu shows his skill for creating fantastic dishes.


As their food is all about clever twists on British classics, the future of British cooking, I am certain that my husband will thank me for revisiting a previous ‘pre CotswoldCreate Hotspot’  turning it into an official one!

They use three main sources all within 10 mile radius. The one exception though is their fish. With the Cotswolds lack of coastline it comes up daily from Cornwall from Flying Fish. Beautifully fresh fish that is responsibly sourced arriving from their boats on to our plates within 48 hours. I’m pretty certain that’s what I shall be opting for!

If you get there before me please let me know what you think !!!

For details of where and when and what to eat…visit their website by clicking on the links…HERE for the new lunch menu and HERE for Sunday lunch.

Be sure to book as it gets very popular and if its your first visit, I would suggest you head there on a weekday to avoid the busiest times..then pop back when you’ve sussed it out and by which time I anticipate you’ll be hooked.

ENJOY and don’t forget to let me know how you get on!!
