The Grapevine Hotel, Sheep Street, Stow-on-the-Wold, GL54 1AU
Visit La Vigna at The Grapevine Hotel and be transported from the Cotswolds to a corner of the Mediterranean. Situated in Stow-on-the-Wold, this restaurant offers a fabulous selection of authentic Mediterranean bistro dishes, served in a relaxed dining environment. The menu at La Vigna is packed with delicious food, from tapas and appetisers to cheese, fish and meat boards, pizzas and pastas. We opted to try a selection of tapas to start, including chorizo sausage sautéed in red wine, and fresh salmon and swordfish skewers. This we followed with a crab and chilli tomato sauce linguine, and a chicken, red pepper and spicy sausage pizza. The menu also offers some wonderful summer salads, often including delicious ingredients like sun-blushed tomatoes and crumbled goat's cheese. The wine list continues the Mediterranean theme, with both Italian and Spanish red and white house wines available. Ensure that you leave plenty of room for dessert - the Spanish beignets (or 'churros'), served with a chocolate dip, are delicious. La Vigna offers a unique dining experience with a laid-back Mediterranean vibe, amidst a traditional Cotswold backdrop. This restaurant is an extremely popular venue, and reservations are recommended, especially on Friday and Saturday nights.
