Lording It At Lords of The Manor

Think Cornish red mullet and crab steamed in a courgette flower on a warm aubergine gateau; sirloin of Cotswold Longhorn beef, fricassee of Hereford snails and broad beans, cep purée, red wine auce; roasted Creedy Carver Devonshire duck, Cox's farm pear puree, pan fried foie gras; fillet of Loch Duart salmon, Cox's Farm asparagus.
The whole Cotswold area has become a gourmet experience with farm shops to visit, farm gates and fabulous local produce. The ancient city of Cirencester has gracious buildings and laneways with intriguing shops and cafes such as Made by Bob, a stylish, modern café opposite Hobbs House Bakery, while nearby are Cirencester Cupcakes, Jesse Smith Butchers with Jesse Smith Bistro and the New Wave fishmonger
All just right for a leisurely drive and flying in to Birmingham on Emirates makes the whole journey very simple. Oh - made myself hungry now ...
