Lunch in Cotswolds – Cheltenham Food Festival and Tewkesbury Food Festival are becoming bigger and better each year. Both festivals provide a great day out and a chance to sample and buy local food and local ales brewed in the Cotswolds. Don’t miss a traditional Cotswold afternoon tea either in a village tearoom or in the grand surroundings of a country hotel. For something stronger, choose a pint of local ale in a traditional country pub. The Gloucestershire Ale Trail highlights some of the Cotswolds’ outstanding craft breweries. Get more details on this.
