Michelin chef David Everett-Matthias offers tips for Cheltenham Festival goers

A dish by Michelin chef David Everett-Matthias It's almost time for the Cheltenham Festival set to take place from the 14th - 17th of March, giving visitors the opportunity to plan a mini-break in the capital of the Cotswolds. No foodie's visit would be complete without a meal at Le Champignon Sauvage which is a Michelin-star restaurant in the centre of town.

Chef David Everitt-Matthias has been firmly on the chef scene for more than 35 years and according to the Observer Food Monthly Awards 2022 in which he was a runner-up, "[this] fine-dining restaurant, refined without being stuffy, has been winning acclaim since 1987... food that is both style and substance."

Occasionally spotted cooking on James Martin's Saturday Morning television show, David's menu is seasonally driven and locally sourced. At £47 for a set three-course lunch and £47 for a set three-course dinner, Wednesday to Friday, it's some of the best value Michelin dining in the UK.

As for David's top spots for Cheltenham visitors....
*If you're an early riser, on a good day you can watch the mist parting, revealing the stunning spring colours of Cheltenham from the top of Leckhampton Hill. Fresh croissants and a thermos of coffee will hugely enhance the experience! The aforementioned croissants can only be Baker & Graze sourdough ones. This warm and friendly bakery and restaurant is also a great lunch or brunch destination. Check out the new bakery school if you've got more time.

Further afield, Nailsworth is well worth a detour for its plentiful boutiques and independent shops, including Hobbs House Bakery and its award-winning bread. The baking, butchery and barbecue courses are also a big hit.
