This 17th-Century coaching inn, near the small village of Minchinhampton in the heart of the Cotswolds, is a real find. The Ragged Cot has recently been taken over by Chris Lidgitt and chef Emma Berriman; the enthusiasm this young couple have for the restaurant shows in everything from the warm and inviting bar area to the quality of the food they serve.

Our senses were instantly awakened by the smell of great food and the bustle of the busy restaurant. We enjoyed a drink by the open fire in the bar, before being shown to our table. I chose to start with the butternut squash, goat's cheese, chicory and walnut salad, which was picture-perfect. My partner was intrigued by the smoked haddock Scotch egg with tomato and chorizo compote, with soft egg yolk oozing out of a crisp breadcrumb shell. My main of braised blade of beef with parsnip Dauphinois, baby carrots and a red wine jus was simply divine, and my companion relished the fabulous flavours of his guinea fowl breast with wilted kale, bread sauce and game chips.

Two desserts - a sticky toffee and chestnut pudding with toffee sauce and peanut butter parfait, and Emma's signature dish of creamed coconut rice pudding with plum jam - finished off our delicious meal perfectly. If you don't fancy the drive home after dinner, why not spoil yourself and book into one of the Ragged Cot's guest rooms.
