The Feathered Nest Inn
'Marvellous views over the Evenlode Valley,' says Jackie. 'The blackboard menu offers relaxed eating in the bar and garden terrace, and many of the herbs and veg are grown in the kitchen garden. Fish and chips and ploughman's in the bar are complemented by Cornish scallops with lemon curd and beetroot, and pea and mint risotto with roasted sweetbreads on the à la carte.'
