The Feathered Nest in the Cotswolds has been taken over by a new owner and a new head chef brought it to drive change in the kitchen.
The pub with rooms is now owned by Adam Taylor, chief executive of Nested Hospitality, who has always ‘dreamt of owning his own restaurant or bar in the Cotswolds’.
New head chef Matthew Weedon has been recruited to take the helm of the kitchen, who boasts experience at the likes of Glennapp Castle and Lords of the Manor.
Weedon won his first Michelin star at Glenapp Castle and then moved to Lords of the Manor in the Cotswolds in 2008, where he was appointed executive chef. Just a year later, the hotel’s restaurant won a Michelin star under his leadership.
Weedon said: “I’m thrilled to have joined The Feathered Nest team at such an exciting time. We’re trying to pick and choose the best ingredients around to bring in, not just to bang the local drum for the sake of it, but because the local produce is that good.”
Taylor added: “The team (new and old) have been fantastic, stepping up to the challenge, embracing changes and steering the new direction of The Feathered Nest.”
The Feathered Nest comprises four-individually designed bedrooms.
