The Wild Rabbit is a modern British Inn in the heart of the Cotswolds serving hyper-local seasonal food in a relaxed and welcoming setting and offering 12 bedrooms (all, like the inn itself, named after creatures found in the English countryside). There are three cosy cottages opposite the inn and two more just a short walk away in the village of Kingham.
The Wild Rabbit is part of the Daylesford estate, dubbed as one of the most sustainable farms in the UK and home to the original Daylesford Farmshop, along with The Daylesford Cookery School, Bamford natural clothing and artisan skin care products, as well as the nearby Bamford Haybarn Spa.
On offer is a constantly changing menu that uses organic ingredients from the Daylesford farm – picked fresh each morning and delivered straight to the kitchen – alongside foraged and locally sourced produce from artisan producers. The dining room is open daily from Wednesday to Sunday inclusive, for lunch and dinner. The kitchen is open so that the theatre of the chefs is always on view.
The bar serves a mix of artisan beers alongside more familiar ales, while our wine list brings together wines from small independent vineyards. Food can be ordered from the bar and terrace menu Wednesday to Sunday inclusive, for lunch and dinner.
Choose between 8 airy bedrooms spread across two floors over the pub, of 4 dog-friendly rooms accessible from the garden, or five cottages scattered in the surrounding village of Kingham. All rooms combine Daylesford’s signature pared-back style with honest creature comforts: excellent mattresses, luxurious bathrooms and fine linen sheets. Each room is different, taking their names from the British countryside, and illustrated with whimsical linocuts by Hugo Guinness.
