Inspired by a modern take on the classic Parisian brasserie, Côte provides a relaxing, yet chic, environment in which to dine.
On the menu you will find authentic French favourites such as tuna Niçoise, steak-frites or half chargrilled poulet Breton and starters such as chicken liver parfait, Roquefort and endive salad or French onion soup.
The specials menu changes monthly so that there is always something new to try and it’s based on what’s in season. The weekday lunch and early evening menu also changes monthly and is planned around market prices. It can include delicious items such as pork rillettes with sourdough toast, followed by fantastic fresh hake and finished with Côte’s speciality crème caramel.
Breakfasts at Côte are special too, including eggs Benedict with homemade velvety-thick Hollandaise and a fantastic vegetarian breakfast. The French toast with maple syrup and fruit salad makes for a great brunch and of course there are always fresh pastries on offer.
With friendly and welcoming service and a varied but reasonably priced French wine list, Côte is a perfect spot for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

The Priory Inn deserves its strong local reputation as a great place to eat and drink. The ever-popular restaurant has won many awards since being taken over by the current private owners in 2004. These include a Harden’s Remy Restaurant Award, Cotswold Life Food and Drink Awards (“Most Distinctive Local Menu”) and Taste of The West Silver Dining Pub Awards.
The inn has Cotswold stone walls, bare floorboards, oak tables, bright contemporary canvases from local artists, a huge walk-around fireplace and free on-site car parking. Every Sunday from 8pm there is chilled-out live acoustic music - see Cirencester Events
The majority of the food is sourced from within 30 miles of Tetbury and the quality speaks for itself: simple, seasonal, modern/rustic dishes at affordable prices, all sourced from local farms, growers and producers; fresh Cornish fish and gourmet pizzas from the wood-fired oven. The Priory Inn has developed a great reputation for local drinks with a worthy recommendation from CAMRA for its real ales (Uley is the house ale)Cotswold lager, wine and liqueurs, all developed by passionate, talented people. There is more to read on your table or on the website.
The Priory Inn is focused on welcoming families: they have staff with the right attitude, high-chairs, changing facilities, a toy box and children's menu - it is worth booking in advance.
