The picturesque village of Northleach provides a wonderful setting for the 17th-Century Cotswold stone building that houses the charming Wheatsheaf Hotel. The historic exterior is contrasted perfectly by its beautifully modernised interior, with the ambient lighting and contemporary furniture really enhancing the experience. On our visit, the crackling open fire provided much appreciated warmth on such a cold winter's night.

The menu is equally warming with a variety of different dishes that leave the mouth watering even before you indulge. The starter of crispy duck and spring onions tossed in a hoi sin sauce (£7.95), was a light dish, full of flavour and proved a refreshing commencement to the evening. My partner's Atlantic prawn and crayfish cocktail saw a modern twist on a classic prawn cocktail and was finished with a lime and coriander yoghurt.

As you'd expect, the mains provide real choice and the emphasis is on sourcing much produce locally. Beautiful meat and fish dishes stand proudly alongside burgers and vegetarian choices - even the most devoted meat muncher will be swayed by the likes of Brie, walnut and rosemary lasagne.

I decided to venture forth with a fillet steak (£19.50) that was full of flavour and ultimately proved a wonderfully tender cut of meat. The fillet sat upon a bed of spinach, while a tasty rosti potato provided a fitting final layer. My dining partner enjoyed a roast rack of lamb (£15.95), again cooked with precision and accompanied by dauphinoise potatoes and a red wine jus that encapsulated all the flavours.

The desserts are a perfect way to round off a delightful evening, portions are just right so as to not leave you feeling guilty about the additional calorie consumption. We opted for a chocolate creme brûlée and an old favourite, sticky toffee pudding - a winner every time. Fantastic service rounded off a really enchanting evening. We shall certainly come again soon, hopefully to sample the well-reputed Sunday roasts.
