Good news for foodies just across the border into Wiltshire (and for those of us who live in the Tetbury-Cirencester-Stroud triangle): the Rectory Hotel’s new gastropub venture, The Potting Shed, flings open its stylish doors this Monday 3 December. Resource insiders, who have already taste-tested the menu (we have our spies, don’t you worry) have given it an enthusiastic thumbs-up and we will be queuing up for one of the first tables available. Expect delicious, home-cooked food – handled in the Rectory’s own inimitable style – along with some very clever, very chic design touches. These guys know what they’re doing – and they do it so well. Call Cate Whittaker on 01666 577 194 to make a reservation.
