The Edgemoor Inn is a top venue all year round. The terraced patio overlooking Painswick and the surrounding countryside is a picturesque spot to spend a sunny afternoon, while the modern yet cosy interior provides a welcome refuge from the cold on a winter's evening. Although the building may look traditional from the outside, the interior is modern and smart, with an eclectic mix of polished wood floors, bare-brick walls and original features. Service is efficient but never stuffy, so all you need do is sit back, relax and focus on spending quality time with friends and family.
The team at The Edgemoor are dedicated to sourcing produce as locally as they can. The bar boasts one of the finest selections of local ales in the area, including varieties from Uley, Wickwar and Stroud, and the menu features as much local fresh fish, meat and vegetables as possible. In addition to the wide-ranging main menu of homemade favourites - including delicious vegetarian options - there is always a tempting daily special on offer. There is also an outstanding roast lunch with all the trimmings served every Sunday.
If you just fancy a quick bite to enjoy with a pint, or want something to nibble while perusing the menu, the list of appetisers should offer something to sate your cravings - perhaps homemade hummus with pitta, or marinated olives, feta, warm ciabatta and dipping oil. Next, tuck into a starter of deep-fried whitebait or chicken satay with peanut sauce, before moving onto a hearty main such as grilled lamb cutlets with cherry tomatoes, Portobello mushroom, spinach, sauteed potatoes and shallot gravy. The spiced nut loaf with roast carrots, beetroot and mixed seed salad, new potatoes and tomato and pesto sauce is a great option for vegetarian diners, while fish fans can get their seafood fix thanks to dishes such as grilled salmon with orange butter, citrus and asparagus salad and new potatoes. Quality food, well-kept ales and unrivalled countryside views - eating out surely doesn't get any better than this.
