There’s an amazing Italian in the Cotswolds
We visited Lygon Wine Bar on their very first Wine Bar Wednesday… fantastic evening! It’s already one of our all-time favourite eateries in the Cotswolds, so this offer was right up our street. BOOK YOUR TABLE HERE.
WINE BAR WEDNESDAY with BOTTOMLESS HOUSE WINE.
Visit Lygon Wine Bar for lunch or dinner in February and March (excluding Race Week) and when ordering 3 courses you will receive complimentary bottomless house wine.
Only available when 3 courses are ordered from the existing menu excluding paninis, nibbles and antipasti. Valid Feb & March only on Wednesdays, excluding 12th to 15th March 2019. Cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer. 1.5hrs maximum stay.
In fact, it’s more than great, it has everything one could ever want in an Italian restaurant: Authentic Italian dishes, all created with great love and skill. A wonderful atmosphere. Top class service by knowledgeable and friendly staff. And the perfect location, right in the centre of Broadway, one of the best loved towns in the Cotswolds.
A cosy and intimate space
We visited Lygon Wine Bar following a relaxing morning at the luxurious spa at The Lygon Arms Hotel and were greeted warmly by everyone there. Shown to our table in the window, a cosy spot in the front of the restaurant with a lovely view of the High Street, but we would have been happy with any table in the restaurant, really, as the layout is such that each and every one is a cosy and intimate space, a rare effect made possible partly due to the shape of the two rooms that make up the restaurant, but also due to the clever decorating choices throughout.
One of everything, please!
The menu at Lygon Wine Bar is impossible! Impossible to choose from, that is, because what we wanted to say was “We’ll have one of everything, please”! We couldn’t do that, of course, so for antipasti we went for the buffalo bocconcini mozzarella and cherry tomatoes and the Italian spicy sausage arancini, two delicious choices that set the bar for the rest of the meal at an impossibly high level. For starters we chose the beef carpaccio with parmesan and rocket, and the burrata with chicory and pine kernels. Our main courses were the spice Italian sausage, red onion and peppers pizzette (deliciously thin pizza base packed full of Italian goodness on top) and a traditional classic of Italian meatballs, tomato and chilli tagliatelle. And we needn’t have “worried” about the bar set by the antipasti, because the rest of the meal more than lived up to our high expectations on every level.
Our new favourite Italian restaurant
During the course of this first 2-hour lunch at the Lygon Wine Bar in Broadway, we gained a brand new favourite Italian restaurant and we have been back many times since. And not that we needed one, but how wonderful that we now have another reason to visit beautiful Broadway in the Cotswolds.
