Review on The Trouble House

It's likely that The Trouble House an unassuming Cotswold pub got its current name as a result of some bother during the Civil War, and it was also the scene of agricultural riots during the Luddite Rebellion. These days, things are much more peaceful, and the place earns its reputation thanks to top-notch food, drink and personal hospitality.

The cosy interior still looks the part as a proper village hostelry, complete with big black beams over its crooked ceiling, log fires, country cottage artefacts and bare tables. Order at the bar from a menu that oozes with cleverly sourced British produce. Start with a tarte fine of beetroot, caramelised onion and Golden Cross goats' cheese before sampling, say, braised ox cheek with smoked potato purée and sauce bouguignonne or risotto of pot-caught lobster, peas, tomato and tarragon. Bread is baked twice daily with Shipton Mill organic flour, cheeses are impressively British, and desserts run from coffee crème brûlée to pear and star anise tarte Tatin.
