Bistro and restaurant.

Simple seasonal classics, lovingly prepared.

Oozing Cotswold character and charm, with dressed stone, exposed beams and wood burner, the beautifully restored ground floor is home to St Michael’s all-day bistro restaurant and mini farm shop.

Eat simply. Eat well.

Food at St Michael’s is about simplicity and enjoyment: delicious, unpretentious classic dishes made personally, on the premises, by chef and owner Matt. With over 30 years’ culinary experience, Matt’s standards are exacting. The daily menu is always seasonal so we’re big on fresh, top-quality ingredients. We only buy produce from trusted local suppliers (many family-run) and a few select specialists further afield. Expect a varied choice of British and European food throughout the year.

Our breakfast won the Trip Adviser Award!
It’s cooked with love to order. We bake our homemade bread and croissants here daily, prepare fresh fruit salad, homemade muesli and home cooked baked beans; we source sausages, bacon, cheeses, milk, butter, yoghurts and free range eggs from local farms, using local suppliers where possible ( Kitchen garden preserves and condiments, Painswick honey to name a few); we serve artisan Rave coffee and Thregotnan estate tea. We offer a wide selection from continental and cooked breakfast as well and teas, coffees and fresh orange juice on tap.

You can reserve a table for you and your family and friends (prior notice required) to join us in the morning.

Traditional Sunday roast

Sunday roast is close to our hearts – it represents family and friends like no other meal. It is truly a part of the national identity. Come and join us by the roaring fire.


Children’s Menu

Eating a variety of foods keeps our meals interesting and full of flavours. It’s also the key to a healthy and balanced diet because each food has a unique mix of nutrients—both mac­ronutrients (carbohydrate, protein, and fat) and micronutrients (vitamins and minerals). Our special Kid’s Menu  provides a blueprint to help us make the best eating choices.
Kids menu being served all week at lunchtimes, evenings and also for Sunday roast.
Please check for our opening times.

St Michael’s cellar and drinks

Since we come from a family of wine producers, our small but perfectly-formed cellar promises a good selection of affordable, enjoyable wines. Compiled with the help of local independent merchant D’Arcy Wines, our list also includes several wines available by the glass or 500ml carafe. As well as spirits, beers and ciders, in summer we serve delicious home-made cordials, smoothies, iced teas and coffees.

And lastly…produce and provenance.

  • Over Farm, Evesham market – top quality vegetables
