It’s back to the future for this exquisitely restored 500-year-old inn, where the accent is very much on food, reared and grown nearby

You might find the cast of Downton Abbey staying at this 15th-century coaching inn – and for method actors, it must be a dream. Occupying centre-stage in one the prettiest of all Cotswold villages, the Sign of the Angel is a genuine period piece: all chalky whitewash and wonky beams, artful oak furniture and flagstoned passageways. The inn was taken over by energetic young brothers Tom and Jack in 2014, and has been impeccably renovated to trumpet its age. The owners are from farming stock, and it shows in head chef Ashley's menu: everything from the bread to the sorbets are locally sourced and homemade: warm mackerel rarebit, brioche and heritage tomato salad; baked tenderloin in local bacon stuffed with pear and Bath cheese; Bramley crumble with toffee apple ice cream. The afternoon teas are rightly regaled, too – with a 20-minute wait while your scones are bespoke-baked to order.

"A wonderful experience. Everybody went out of their way to make our stay relaxing and calming. From the comfort of the bedrooms to the delicious food, not to mention the warming log fires, it was truly a memorable visit."

"Excellent food beautifully presented and tremendous value for the set lunch.The new owners are doing a fantastic job. However, it is not a pub. It has been voted pub of the year 2016 - 2017, which is a little misleading. It is a restaurant with rooms. We did not stay there. A very special place in a very special village."
