Our Favourites: Wilder in the Cotswolds

Wilder offers a truly exceptional dining experience. It’s a real treat just waiting to be discovered in the heart of this sleepy market town. Chef-patron Matthew Beardshall’s wealth of experience – gleaned while working alongside Simon Rogan, Marcus Wareing and Gordon Ramsay – shines through in every dish of his carefully created surprise eight-course tasting menu.

What to eat

The menu, which changes daily, is creative and inventive, with astounding attention to detail. From the homemade ravioli with sweetcorn velouté and shredded lamb, to marinated aubergine with labneh and sweet vinaigrette, every course features an outstanding medley of skilfully combined flavours and textures. The ingredients, some of which are foraged by Matthew himself, are locally sourced and seasonal, so the menu is adapted depending on which ingredients are in the kitchen that day. Diners have a clear view into the busy kitchen, where diners can witness the culinary genius of Matthew.

Never one to take the lift, she still gets out of breath climbing the three flights of stairs to the office and is a lover of bookshops, vegetarian food and flavoured tea.
