You will not be disappointed...

If you are fed up of going to the same old restaurants, then have we got a treat for you! Perfectly located in the centre of the idyllic Cotswolds village of Broadway is Russell’s – a restaurant with rooms.

Russell’s opened in 2004, following a painstaking restoration, which transformed a historic building into the elegant and contemporary venue it is today.

Russell’s is housed in, and takes its name from the old workshop of the
influential 20th Century British furniture designer, Sir Gordon Russell, who moved to Broadway with his father in 1904. This former showroom has been transformed into a modern, airy restaurant complete with a fantastic terrace, a private dining room, and seven individually designed bedrooms.

The restaurant offers delicious modern British food and Head Chef, Neil Clarke features local Vale of Evesham and Cotswold produce throughout the daily-changing menus. After coming on board in October 2012, Neil brought with him a wealth of experience and inspired ideas.

His new menu includes some great dishes including Cornish scallops, various parsnips, lemon balm and fillet of 28 day dry aged Scotch beef served with chateau potatoes, carrots, parsnips & juniper sauce. As well as the a la carte menu there is also a great value fixed price menu on offer, and of course in true British style a delicious roast every Sunday.

Menus are complimented with a fantastic wine list offering both new and old world wines. The list is constantly changing and Russell’s sommelier Mark is always on the lookout for good quality wines – so if you have a favourite just let him know!

Russell’s private dining room seats up to 14 guests in bright and comfortable surroundings, and is perfect for family celebrations, dinner parties with friends and gatherings with colleagues. The room is located behind a door on the edge of the main restaurant, continuing the décor and ambience of the rest of the dining room and featuring a magnificent original Gordon Russell table at the centre.

If you require catering at home then forget the fuss and frills of traditional private caterers - Russell’s Dine at Home is the ultimate, no hassle way to entertain in your own house. Their chefs and waiters are available to prepare and serve your guests a Russell’s-style banque at your very own dinner table. And the best bit? You don’t even have to lift a finger!

The latest Russell’s venture is just around the corner… Russell’s Fish & Chips. Located just off the main High Street they serve only the finest fish, which can be enjoyed eaten in or taken away. Whatever your requirements, Russell’s cater for all – an award-winning restaurant, hotel, private dining, or fish and chips - the perfect place to visit, relax and enjoy.
