FROM START TO FINISH
For us brilliant hospitality starts with brilliant food. So, whilst the Cotswolds may be steeped in history and tradition, we’d like to welcome you to the new explosive tastes of entrepreneurial young chefs who have drawn influences from across Europe and the world and taken English cuisine to a sublime level.
FOR EVERY MEAL THERE IS A SEASON
The Cotswolds is an area known for it’s produce and over the years our private chefs have built up a network of the finest local suppliers, they only buy produce that is in season and treat ingredients with all due respect to ensure the best and freshest tastes possible. Our guests, many of whom are very knowledgeable about food, regularly comment that eating at a Jones & Campbell table is equal to the finest Michelin star restaurant quality.
If you’ve never had proper English bacon and sausages, they’re something you need to experience – in particular our local butcher’s sausages are a thing of great wonder and delight! Of course, we also offer ‘healthy’ options for the lighter eater – fruits, yoghurts, and pastries.
Lunches are a moveable feast – sometimes we eat indoors, sometimes we move to the garden and sometimes we’ll take you to a favourite eating place whilst we’re out and about sightseeing. When ‘at home’ lunch is a reasonably light two course meal or ‘family-style’ buffet with cheese to follow.
We couldn’t imagine you coming to England without taking ‘afternoon tea’ at least once! Normally we’ll provide afternoon tea in a Gazebo the day we go to watch that quintessential English sport of polo. Although it isn’t just tea – we like to pop a bottle or two of champagne into the cooler just for fun.
Every evening meal with Jones & Campbell is a ‘tour de force’ – something magnificent. Actually the whole dining experience is a high spot of every day. We start with a cocktail and make haste slowly through the meal, which is a chance to reflect on the sights and sites we visited and enjoyed. Once again we prepare a three course menu followed by cheese. We’re very proud of the variety and quality of English cheese we offer, much of which is local.
FINE WINES WE PREPARE
TO PAIR AND SHARE
Having honed their hospitality skills in France both Ang and Joe have developed a discerning palate for fine wines. The Jones & Campbell cellar is a thing of much joy and delight with not only the finest French wines but also English wines that are creating a global reputation for themselves and some great examples of wines from around the world. Each has been selected to pair with one of the dishes on the menu (and a few are just great afternoon garden quaffing wines!)
Rest assured that whether you want morning coffee with a home-made biscuit, a mid-afternoon cup of Earl Grey tea with a slice of home-baked cake, or a 5.30 cocktail with olives and nuts it’s all on tap.
LET’S GET COOKING
One of the great things you’ll find about your private chef is that you’re always welcome in the kitchen for a foodie conversation about meal ‘prep’ and cooking techniques. If you’re a keen cook yourself then chef will be happy to arrange a demonstration and lend you an apron so you can roll your sleeves up and get involved making fresh pasta or stirring a sauce.
How to book
Your custom is important to us and we run a personal service, so we don’t book online – we want you to talk to us. Our clients like it better this way – most have some bespoke element to their booking and we really want to tailor your elite gourmet escape to you.
That could involve people arriving in different places at different times, different dietary requirements or allergies, sleeping arrangements or the wish to see something specific in the local area – this is your private escape and we’re here for you.
