Just enjoyed an absolutely amazing valentines meal from Wild Garlic; tomato tartlet, vegan pasta, melt in the mouth beef bourguignon and dauphinois potatoes and a beautiful passion fruit cheesecake and sorbet to finish! Cooked at home so required a little more effort, but absolutely knock-out....Looking forward to being able to return after lockdown!More

We visited Wild Garlic for my husband’s birthday with friends. Wonderful service and beautiful, imaginative food. We are both vegetarian and the choices were creative and unusual, with a wonderful balance of flavours. Would highly recommend along with sister restaurant Wilder which is of Michelin...standard. Enjoy!More

We come here at least once a year - more often if we can! The standard of food is always high, and the restaurant is COVID compliant. Portions are not large, but they are carefully prepared and lovely to eat.

We stayed in The Nest which was ideal for us and our two children. It had everything we needed (except an electric point in the bathroom). The walls could do with a bit of a paint - it was a bit grubby in some areas....The quality of the breakfast provided in the room was great. Beautiful home made blueberry muffins, home made granola, box of cereal and yoghurt/juice. However, by the third morning, the same breakfast wore thin and actually a variety of cereals would have been great - possibly a range of danishes or even a toaster in the room. Whilst the hotel are doing what they can in the circumstances, a little more thought for the guests staying several nights would have been better. Unfortunately as we booked at the start of the year before COVID, we didn’t realise all the restrictions were in place at the hotel which meant we didn’t get to eat there at all. Please be aware of this if you stay at the start of the week! However there are plenty of lovely places to eat in Nailsworth. The only other thing we found was that you could really hear between rooms - we could hear our ‘neighbours’ TV - and they could no doubt hear us too.More

Some of the best food we’ve had this year. Seasonal menu. Couldn’t help but have all 3 courses here. Perfectly cooked duck leg for the main course, literally melted away from the bone. Hidden gem that we wished was on our doorstep rather than in...Nailsworth as we’d go there every weekend!More

Due to the Covid virus there is no trip to France this year, and today following a drive through Nailsworth last weekend we decided to enjoy the day taking a closer look. Meandering around in and out of the wonderful choice of little shops popped...into the indoor flower shop called Junglist where we parted with good money such was the help on hand from the charming lady owner, a wonderful experience. My wife and I commented on the vicinity saying how it really did remind us of a France, then as it was around 12 ish noticed several places to eat close by, and following closer inspection reviewing the menu a very friendly young lady employee said if we wanted to eat indoors we might have to wait for a table offering us the option to sit outside and so we did. We ordered starters with a bowl of fries for a light lunch, in a word fabulous. I had the best fish soup ever, the fries were better than most anywhere by some degree and all washed down with a glass of French wine, we joked who needs France ! The best thing was the surprise at finding or should I say discovering Wild Garlic the name of the restaurant and the truly wonderful food, way above average that I guess you tend to expect. On reading up on the restaurant back home, the chefs CV clearly says it all, thank you for making our day.More

Visited today for an early dinner for my birthday. The food was delicious, beautifully prepared and presented. Starter was arancini, main was cod with chick peas and chorizo and a rich and creamy blue cheese to finish. An amazing glass of Pinot Noir provided the...perfect accompaniment to all of this. Service was attentive but not overbearing, knowledgable about the dishes and on hand for recommendations as needed. We sat outside in the sunshine in a beautiful location.More

My wife and I enjoyed a belated wedding anniversary dinner at the Wild Garlic tonight, having heard nothing but positive reports about it. Everything we had heard was true!! The food was fabulous - I had the confit of duck leg whilst my wife ordered...the loin of cod with chorizo and cassoulet - both of these were seriously tasty. Faye, as Maitre D', could not have been a better front of house, both attentive but also leaving enough time to let us make up our minds what to order. Overall, a wonderfully relaxed evening, and it is great to discover a new gem on our doorstep. We will be back soon!More

Never seen any dogs either, not sure on their policy on dogs, best to give them a ring.

From my recollection there are no real views anywhere. It’s a converted pub
