Cotswold Life Food & Drink Awards: Family Dining Award


From cosy pubs to rustic inns, the Cotswolds are home to some of the finest dining pubs in the region perfect for a family meal out. Here’s our winner of the Family Dining Award...

The Cotswold Life Food & Drink Awards are one of the biggest events in the local calendar and it is hugely anticipated by the region’s food and drink industry all year round.

We champion the best local producers, suppliers and businesses that are passionate about the Cotswold countryside and the future of our local environment.

Thanks to both the nominations of the public and our well-respected judges, we have picked a winner worthy of the ‘Family Dining Award’, sponsored by Martin Green.

This year’s finalists

The Golden Cross Inn, Cirencester

Judges liked the family orientated feel of The Golden Cross Inn, with its warm welcome and dog friendly attitude. The food was said to be excellent and served in a relaxed atmosphere and judges would be keen to recommend and visit again.

The Red Lion, Long Compton

Judges described the warming feeling of seeming like a local, regular visitor when visiting The Red Lion. The garden provided a wonderful play area for children and room to accommodate families. The menu offered great choices and the chosen meal very tasty.

And the winner is...

The Inn at Welland, Welland

The Inn at Welland provided a good choice of food on the menus, accompanied with explanations of the produce. The meal was said to be great value for money with staff creating a very homely and family feel at the establishment.
