Best restaurants with rooms in the UK
At The Chapel, Bruton
At the Chapel in the must-visit Somerset town of Bruton is home to a restaurant, artisan bakery and wine store. Open since 2010, dine in this stunning space before spending the night in one of their eight luxury rooms. No two are the same, but we’d recommend booking one with a freestanding bath if you can. Tip: For the best photos of the restaurant, climb the spiral staircase. The light here is magical.
Rooms from £125 a night, food from £8
The Bower House, Warwickshire
This independent restaurant with rooms in Shipston-on-Stour, on the outskirts of the Cotswolds, is set in a handsome Georgian townhouse filled with artwork and quirky local artefacts, like the shop sign from a bygone era lovingly positioned above the fireplace. If you’re just popping into The Bower House for lunch, they do two courses and a glass of wine for £28 from Wednesday to Friday. Or stay over in one of their six boutique bedrooms.
Rooms from £115 a night, food from £7
Boys Hall, Ashford, Kent
A new opening for 2022/23, Boys Hall is a restaurant with rooms we predict will become one of the best-loved rural retreats in Kent. This 17th Century house has been lovingly restored by owners Kristie and Brad Lomas and is now a boutique restaurant and terrace, wild country garden and what will be 10 suites to stay over in by the end of the year (seven are open now). We haven’t visited yet, but it’s on our list.
Rooms from £160 a night, food from £11
The Bradley Hare, Wiltshire
Make a proper weekend of it at The Bradley Hare, one of our favourite pubs/restaurants with rooms in the UK. The perfect base for exploring Somerset, the towns of Frome and Bruton are both nearby. But if you’re happy with local walks, spend your time eating good food and drinking your favourite tipples (the cocktails here are good) before bedding down in one of their boutique rooms. Our favourites are The Nest with its quirky bed and and Coach House Upper, with freestanding bath in the room. Read our full review of The Bradley Hare here.
Rooms from £135 a night including breakfast, food from £25 for two courses (set lunch)
The Lamb Inn, Shipton-under-Wychwood
Find The Lamb Inn in the quaint village of Shipton-under-Wychwood in the Cotswolds. The perfect spot for Sunday lunch, it serves elevated pub food the rest of the week. Think Steak Frites, Venison Pie and Cote De Boeuf for two. Sister pub to The Bell Inn in Nottinghamshire, stay over in one of their 10 newly-renovated rooms. All are stylish with king or super king-size beds. Request one with a roll top bath.
Rooms from £99 a night including breakfast, food from £9
The Princess Royal London, Notting Hill
The Princess Royal is relatively new, having only opened in 2022, but is a pub/restaurant with rooms in London worth visiting.

Once the festivities are over, retire to one of their four boutique bedrooms, which feature abstract artwork and freestanding baths.
Rooms from £220 a night, food from £25 for two courses (set lunch)
The Terrace Rooms & Wine, Isle of Wight

Rooms from £200 a night including breakfast, food from £18
Updown Farmhouse near Deal, Kent

The Hand and Flowers, Marlow
The Hand and Flowers is the only pub and restaurant with two Michelin stars in the UK, so had to make this list.
