Review on Wild Garlic Restaurant & Rooms
New owners have taken over this charming Cotswold restaurant-with-rooms (formerly Mad Hatters), and after a name change to Wild Garlic Restaurant & Rooms seem intent on running along very similar lines as before. There's a strong emphasis on organic, free-range and local produce in the kitchen, and just about everything is made on the premises - from pasta, ice creams and sorbets to daily-baked organic bread.
The menu shows some classical touches tweaked with a few personal gestures and flashes of creativity. Here you might find naturally smoked haddock, leek and potato chowder or seared partridge breast with honey-pickled parsnips and Stilton salad ahead of fillet of sea trout with tomato and chilli confit, whole poached and roast poussin with black pudding, bacon and sour cream stuffing, or Gressingham duck with celeriac purée and purple sprouting broccoli. As for desserts, think deep-fried rice pudding with apple and blackberry compote or pistachio mousse with white chocolate ice cream.
The Rooms is the nickname for the delightfully rustic accommodation upstairs from the restaurant.
