A delightful tiny restaurant with 28 covers in the quiet village of Winchcombe. Known for its outstanding cuisine, this is cosy tradition with bare tables, brown leather chairs and beamed ceilings. Husband-and-wife team Marcus and Kate founded Restaurant 5 North Street in the chocolate box Cotswolds town of Winchcombe. Inspired by such classic restaurants as Shaun Hill's former Merchant House, he created an informal dining room, devoid of pretence and fuss.
Sensational flavours are served in his unstuffy dining room in a variety of menus, from lunch through to a la carte dinner and degustation. Under Gus's expert tutelage, flavours sing. Dishes are presented in forms that are as pretty as a picture, and exceptional contacts with the region's finest producers enable Gus to cook with the seasons, bringing the best of local food and drink to the table. Having learned from great chefs, like Michel Roux Snr, Gus offers cuisine with enormous finesse. Canapes are a riot of flavour, mains are robust and underpinned by starry cooking while dreamy desserts live long in the memory.
