Review on Restaurant at The Painswick
The Painswick, formerly known as the Cotswolds88 Hotel is located in the Gloucestershire village of Painswick, a stately Palladian-style rectory that has been transformed into an über-fashionable boutique destination. Outside, the building still shows off its pillars, pediments and classical grey-stone symmetry, but inside the interiors have been beautifully updated in a chic contemporary style.
At the helm of the restaurant is talented Head Chef Michael Bedford who serves up a contemporary menu with a focus on local and organic ingredients. Using the highest quality and freshest ingredients you might open your account with a starter of a mosaic of Cotswolds chicken, smoked ham hock and Landes foie gras, piccalilli and cepe flavoured brioche or seared hand dived king scallops with smoked eel, apple gel, fresh truffle, celeriac purée and truffle vinaigrette. Inventive mains follow offering an enticing mix of flavours with loin of roe deer wrapped in pancetta, braised red cabbage, salsify and beetroot, pommes boulangere, venison jus with Willy Wonkas chocolate or maybe fillet of North Atlantic cod, crispy salt cod brandade, textures of artichoke, homemade sultanas, gremolata, roast chicken jus. Proceedings conclude in style with a dessert of peanut butter parfait with cherry jam, bitter chocolate sorbet, roast banana and toasted marshmallow. There is an excellent international wine list to complement the dishes.
