Victoria Street, Painswick, GL6 6QA

Located in the charming and picturesque village of Painswick, St Michael’s can be found in the heart of the Cotswolds, surrounded by quaint sandstone cottages and overlooking the grounds of St Mary’s Church. Home not just to an outstanding restaurant but also to a series of boutique rooms, St Michael’s is a popular stop with out-of-town visitors, as well as locals. The laid-back atmosphere is ideal for those looking to unwind and the location is perfect for walkers. Built in the 17th century, St Michael’s has bags of character and this has been retained throughout the restaurant.

Food at St Michael’s is about simplicity and enjoyment. Each menu beholds an array of delicious, unpretentious British and European classics made in-house by chef and owner Matt, who has over 30 years’ culinary experience. The menu changes with the seasons, but what remains consistent is the fresh, top-quality local ingredients used in every dish. Start your day with a delicious breakfast offering that encompasses the likes of eggs Florentine, smoked haddock omelette and a full English. The Continental buffet is a popular option too: this includes home-baked bread, homemade muesli and fresh fruit salad, while local suppliers provide honey and preserves. The brunch menu is a popular choice with late risers – the creamy mushrooms on toasted soda bread are irresistible – and lunchtime guests are greeted by a light menu of tasty delights such as beer-battered courgette flowers stuffed with pea and ricotta, and puff pastry onion tart Tatin with goat’s cheese and balsamic syrup.

In the evening, the lovingly prepared set menu could commence with an appetising starter of warming butter bean and rosemary soup or refreshing heritage tomato salad with black garlic, before moving on to sumptuous mains such as succulent slow-cooked lamb shank wrapped in lettuce with lamb jus, or braised pork belly and crispy crackling accompanied by almond Dauphine potatoes and carrot and star anise purée. The team also serves an exquisite afternoon tea daily and on Sundays the traditional roast lunch draws crowds from far and wide.
