Review on The Bell at Sapperton

Everything about this genteel Cotswold inn spells prosperity and affluence. The exterior is as trim as can be; inside, it's been sympathetically renovated with more than a dash of rural chic, incorporating exposed stone walls, log fires, wood-burning stoves and a serious helping of 'Country Living' knick-knacks.

The food is upmarket gastropub with restaurant-style embellishments and a commitment to local produce. Expect a raft of seasonal specialities including chicken livers on pearl barley and thyme risotto, casseroled Cirencester Park venison with Valrhona chocolate and slow-braised Gloucester Old Spot belly pork with button onions, Savoy cabbage and pumpkin mash. Fish specials are listed on a blackboard, while desserts might include ginger bavarois with poached rhubarb or caramel mousse with apple fritters.

Ploughman's, 'grazing boards' and lighter dishes taker centre stage at lunchtime and the pub has a decent stock of real ales from independent Cotswold breweries. The carefully selected wine list promises around 20 by the glass.
