Andrew and I got married on a May bank holiday weekend, which means that each year we plan a weekend away to celebrate our anniversary. We also make sure to book a nice restaurant on our anniversary day and this year was no exception! We headed to the English countryside and had our anniversary meal at The Ebrington Arms in the Cotswolds.
The Ebrington Arms is in the middle of small Cotswolds village. Looking like the quaintest country gastropub from the outside, we were excited to eat there!
We had a light breakfast that day and spent the morning exploring the countryside so we were hungry.
It is very unusual for us but that day both Andrew and I ordered the exact same starter and main. So I won’t be able to showcase the variety of the menu, but if everything holds to the same standard than what we had you want to keep reading!
We ordered the tomato to start. A fantastic medley of heirloom tomatoes with the main one presented as an apple and filled with burrata and a pepper terrine. It was fresh, very tasty and a great way to appreciate the different flavours of the tomatoes.
My favourite were the green ones!
Moving on to the main, we opted for the vegetarian dish, a mac and cheese bake served with mushroom ‘ketchup’, truffle oil and fresh British asparagus. It was delicious, satisfying and not too filling. A gastronomic take on comfort food!
For dessert, Andrew chose the ginger cake, with pineapple and ginger icecream. He loved it!
I picked the white chocolate mousse, slightly worried that it may be too sweet and a bit sickening, but not at all! It was light, sweet but not too much, and the combination of the textures and flavours with the praline and peach made it a real anniversary treat.
The staff at The Ebrington Arms also worth a special mention. They were all lovely, funny and made the experience even more enjoyable. The Ebrington Arms is definitely a must to put on your list if you are exploring the Cotswolds.
Unfortunately, we missed the Asparagus Feast, but if you are around the area on June 5th (2018) you should definitely check it out!
