The Painswick

The Painswick

****

Golden and Grade II-listed, The Painswick is already a British boutique-hotel classic: roaring fireplaces, wellies to borrow and good, hearty food awaiting after a day’s country rambling. The historic main house has all the squashy sofas, roll-top baths and eaves bedrooms to give it character to compete with the surrounding Slad Valley.

Highlights:

  • Wonderful food

  • Flawless service

  • Cotswolds setting

Smith extra

One house cocktail for each guest

In the know

Also need to know:

The hotel comes from good Cotswolds stock: its sister properties include Calcot Manor and Barnsley House.

Packing tips:

Waxy jackets to join the Barbour brigade, but leave your wellies at home: the hotel has ones you can borrow.

Dress code:

Blue and green must never be seen (the dining chairs are blue).

Dining information

Restaurant:

The restaurant has some interesting dishes on offer (lobster and black pudding pie), as well as comforting classics (chicken Kiev, steak frites) – with the chef at the helm clearly a fan of both modern British cooking and a dose of retro dishes for good measure.

Top Table:

For smorgasbord-style sharing, settle by the hearth. In warmer weather, opt for the table on the small balcony just off the lounge, for the best place to watch the sun set.

Last Orders:

Breakfast is served between 7am and 10am; lunch is from noon until 2.30pm (3pm at weekends); and dinner is 7pm until 9.30pm. Afternoon tea is on offer between 3pm and 5pm. The bar serves drinks from 11am until 11pm.

Room Service:

There’s no dedicated room-service menu, but whatever’s being served in the restaurant can be delivered up to your room.

Hotel Bar:

The copper-topped bar has lead windows, which light streams through on sunny days. An impressive selection of spirits is on hand for the bar staff to whip up a seasonally changing cocktail menu, as well as a cocktail of the day.
