Cotswolds Spy: September 2019



This autumn sees our next exciting new opening: The Crown. Set in the market town of Minchinhampton, we have renovated this local pub to an excellent standard, including a brand-new bar and restaurant plus a lovely outdoor eating space. With a focus on locally-sourced ingredients, tuck into scrumptious food including a hearty grill menu with enticing meat cuts such a 16oz Bone In Ribeye. There will be daily specials, too – go on Wednesday for moules and frites. Finish with one of our mouth-watering deserts (the Sticky Toffee Pudding is a must). To wash it all down, enjoy our drinks menu which features real ale and outstanding wine.

The Woman in Black at Everyman Theatre

Described by The Daily Telegraph as ‘the most brilliantly effective spine-chiller you will ever encounter’, Susan Hill’s acclaimed ghost story comes dramatically alive in Stephen Mallatratt’s gripping stage adaptation. A lawyer obsessed with a curse that he believes has been cast over him and his family by the spectre of a Woman in Black, engages a sceptical young actor to help him tell his terrifying story and exorcise the fear that grips his soul. It all begins innocently enough, but, as they reach further into his darkest memories, they find themselves caught up in a world of eerie marshes and moaning winds.
