We are incredibly fortunate to work and live in such a beautiful part of the country with an abundance of delicious eateries on our doorstep. During the last year many of us have honed our culinary skills in our kitchens, however, the prospect of a skilfully prepared feast is getting us very excited. Many conversations at Stephen Graver revolve around food (and kitchens of course!), and the hot topic is where will we eat out next? With this in mind, we have compiled some of our teams’ favourite places to dine in Wiltshire that we can’t wait to head back soon.
Located just around the corner from us, The Three Daggers is our ‘local’. With pub, restaurant, rooms, Wood Shed pizza, farm shop and brewery, we couldn’t feel more fortunate to have this on doorstep (we must admit we were knocking their doors as soon as they were open again!). As a chef led business the food and produce is at the heart of everything they do, meaning you can relax and enjoy quality dishes created from handed-picked suppliers.
“With a nose to tail approach to menu planning, we start with the farmer/grower and simply introduce great produce to like-minded ingredients that sing quality & provenance.”
Plythouse Kitchen Garden is a hidden gem in Wiltshire, with every aspect revolving around the garden, including the exquisitely seasonal menus. You will dine on the beautiful terrace, overlooking the garden and under the shelter of a spacious canopy or in the sunny conservatory, meaning the whole experience feels very in-touch with nature. Head chef, Darren Broom has crafted a unique style using influences from Scandinavian food culture, the wild ingredients he forages for, British food history and the art of cooking over fire.
‘Darren’s passion lies in producing food with an unmistakable sense of terroir. For Darren, provenance is not just the backstory to his ingredients, it’s everywhere in the look, feel and taste of his food.’
Plythouse Located in the heart of beautiful Cotswold town of Corsham, the Methuen Arms offers a delicious variety of award-winning food, Butcombe beer on tap, as well as stunning recently renovated bedrooms.
“Food and drink is at the forefront of everything we do. We’re passionate about local, seasonal and sustainable produce, and source many ingredients from our very own kitchen garden.”
Serving breakfast, lunch, supper, bar snacks and Sunday lunch; there is always something seasonal and delicious to tempt you at The Methuen Arms.
Established in 1740, The Beckford Arms is a traditional, yet stylish country inn located on the edge of the breath-taking parkland of the Fonthill Estate in Wiltshire.
“Chef Richard Peacocke and his talented team are committed to cooking the abundance of seasonal produce surrounding The Beckford.”
A charming place to relax and unwind while enjoying the seasonal menu and delights from The Beckford Garden and Meat, game from local farms, fish from the Cornwall coast. Not to mention the alfresco dining and wood-fired pizza on the terrace. You really are spoilt for choice.
We don’t know about you, but we’re off to make some reservations! Enjoy!
