The days are getting longer and the sun is heating up, and we cant wait to spend most of the summer in one of the many amazing pub gardens here in the Cotswolds.
On top of that, it's The Queen's Platinum Jubilee which, of course, we need to celebrate in style and nothing says "garden party" more than a group of friends, a jug of something fruity and, dare we say it, bunting.
That is why we have teamed up with the brilliant Reverend Hubert to bring you the "ultimate summer garden party" at some of our favourite places in the Cotswolds.
You will find jugs of their award-winning Summer Cup (made here in the Cotswolds) at the best pubs and hangouts around the Cotswolds throughout the summer.
Here are just some of the awesome places where you can find jugs, glasses and slushies of the good stuff.

On Monday 14th March, Fitzdares, the world’s finest bookmaker, launched its first out of London club at The Naunton Downs Estate in the Cotswolds. Following the successful launch of the original Fitzdares Club in Mayfair in 2020, Fitzdares has collaborated with Ben Pauling, one of the UK’s leading racehorse trainers, to take over the Clubhouse in time for the return of the highly anticipated Cheltenham festival. The new club will offer members a luxury setting to meet, dine and enjoy watching live sporting events outside of London.

William Woodhams, CEO of Fitzdares, says: “We have seen a huge appetite for the Fitzdares Club since we opened in Mayfair on the 1st September 2020. The Club has gone from strength to strength following a series of successful pop-ups at Goodwood and Royal Windsor last summer. Now has come the time to open our second permanent home in the Cotswolds, just in time for the Cheltenham Festival. We simply cannot wait to show you what we have got in store.”
Ben Pauling Racehorse Trainer and owner of Naunton Downs says; “We’re absolutely delighted that Fitzdares has become a new sponsor of Ben Pauling Racing and made the decision to open their first out of London permanent home at Naunton Downs. With the new curated store, farm to fork restaurant offering and the Fitzdares Club we’ve created the most fantastic destination for locals and visitors alike.”

Cheltenham chicken restaurant Holee Clucker will reopen its doors on Thursday 3rd February after a five month temporary closure.
The restaurant, located on Suffolk Road, felt the pressure of the National Chef Shortage back in September.
Jay Rahman, co-founder of JM Socials said: “Holee Clucker is back! We’ve taken these few months to re-evaluate our concept, update our menu and look at how we can make things even better for our guests. Like hundreds of restaurants across the UK, Holee Clucker struggled with the National Chef Shortage which of course was difficult for us - as well as many other hospitality businesses."
Holee Clucker will open with a new menu, including dishes such as the ‘green machine’ salad, a burrito rice box and updated chicken burgers.

Sam Bowser has joined The Wild Rabbit in Kingham, Oxfordshire, as Executive Chef. He leads the kitchen at the acclaimed pub, which serves both the three-AA-rosette restaurant and the bar.
Bowser joins from Llangoed Hall Hotel, Powys, where he held the position of Head Chef since 2019. Prior to that, he spent four years in the Cotswolds as Head Chef at both Dormy House Hotel and the two Michelin-starred Whatley Manor Hotel. His time in the Cotswolds followed roles working with Philip Howard at The Square in London and with Raymond Blanc at Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons in Oxfordshire. Bowser served a brief stint working for the Bamford family as a private chef seven years ago, where he gained a wealth of knowledge and respect for quality, organic ingredients.
The menus at The Wild Rabbit will continue to be led by the seasons, offering locally sourced and ingredient-focused modern British food. An open kitchen in the 42-cover dining room allows diners to enjoy the theatre of the chefs and brings a dynamic atmosphere to the space. In the bar, a more informal menu provides more relaxed pub food, with the bar seating 34 covers and an additional 40 covers on the terrace during good weather.
Bowser comments: “I am thrilled to be back in the Cotswolds and working with Carole Bamford again. I have been lucky enough to work in many high-end and acclaimed kitchens, but it was working with the Bamford family where I really developed an in-depth understanding of seasonality. The Wild Rabbit offers the perfect setting for me as a chef,
with a quality-driven kitchen and access to exceptional produce from Daylesford Organic - I cannot wait to get stuck in.”
Ewan Grant, General Manager of The Wild Rabbit, comments: “We are excited to welcome Sam to team. He brings considerable experience and expertise from some renowned kitchens. This, coupled with his understanding of The Wild Rabbit, the area and our ethos make him a perfect match as we look forward to an exciting year ahead.”
Bao + BBQ in Cheltenham have taken Christmas feasting to a new level this year.
They have launched their aptly named “Bao + BBQ Christmas Feast” which is a sight to behold,
The star of the show is the 900g -1kg Tomahawk steak, accompanied by a selection of Bao's favourite sides and small plates, including their incredible Katsu Arancini, Bang Bang cauli and our Yuzu Chicken Skewers.
For the board, their Michelin starred Executive Chef Keiron Stevens has created some additional "Bao Style" Christmas classics. You will find pigs in blankets with Asian salt + Pepper Triple Cooked Chips, Yorkshire Puddings, Roasted Sprouts, Bacon Glazed Carrots, BBQ Sauce and Beef Jus.
You will need to pre-order and it costs £73 per person.
What better way to kick off this season's festivities!
Christmas is just around the corner and it's time to start thinking of what booze to get into the house to enjoy with family and friends.
This week's cocktail is a gem from Reverend Hubert, whose Winter Gin Liqueur recipe was created by The Reverend Hubert Bell Lester in 1904 and updated to what it is today by his great-grandson Thomas Lester.
Reverend Hubert's Champagne Cocktail
Place a sugar cube in your glass and sprinkle dashes of Angostura orange bitters (or original) on the cube.
Next add 15ml of Reverend Hubert's winter liqueur.
Top up with Champagne or Prosecco.
Finally drop in a Maraschino cherry.
Christmas comes early to Cheltenham every year, with the greatest gift of them all: two days of quality racing action at the Home of Jump Racing for The International on Friday 10 and Saturday 11 December.
The racecourse will be turning yellow on Friday 10th December in memory of Tiggy Hancock who tragically died in a riding accident in June 2021 aged just 15, whilst at team training for the Pony European Eventing Championships. Cheltenham Racecourse welcome everybody who is coming racing to wear an item of clothing that is yellow to support Tiggy's Trust.
With an overseas flare in the Glenfarclas Cross Country Chase, and more top quality action in the shape of the Unibet Handicap Steeple Chase, Unibet International Hurdle and The International Gold Cup, this two-day race meeting is a highlight of the Christmas racing calendar and kick starts the festive sporting season.
The International Friday
From the the Glenfarclas Cross Country Chase to the Unibet Handicap Steeple Chase, it's an important day in the Festive racing calendar and one that always delivers in the entertainment stakes.
Storm Control, Cogry and the Grand National-winning Mon Mome are just some of the names to taste glory on the Friday of the International.
After racing, we will see the return of the Tattersalls Cheltenham December Sale which provide clients the opportunity to purchase quality English and Irish point to pointers and National Hunt Form Horses from the spring season. The sale is attached to racing and takes place after the last race.
Saturday at The International
The second day of The International Meeting on Saturday 11 December is another fixture that isn't to be missed, and we will be getting in the Festive spirit with Christmas Carols and Live Music.
With clues for The Festival appearing in every race, there's plenty to get excited about with JCB Triumph Trial Juvenile Hurdle, the Caspian Caviar Gold Cup, the Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle and the Unibet International Hurdle.
Winners of those races include real fan favourites such as The New One, Cogry and Fusil Raffles, but who will be adding their name to our honours boards in 2021?
Got2Sing will get the Christmas party started with Christmas Carols on the Centaur Balcony as you enter the racecourse, you will then be able to catch them later in the day on the North Plaza - a perfect area to get racegoers involved in a Christmas sing-a-long.
As well as a fantastic variety of food and drink across the racecourse we will be offering a complimentary mulled wine and minced pie to racegoers on the North Plaza.
There will also be live Jazz music throughout the day from The Hipcats who will roam club/tattersalls enclosure
Finish each day in The Centaur and watch The Wickermen perform from 3.45pm - 4.45pm.

Evesham always gets a bad rap, some fair and some a little unjust. For many, it's the Onslow and Daisy to the Hyacinth Bucket over-manicured Cotswolds, and unless you live there or you were visiting The Regal Cinema, there is no real reason to visit.
The town centre is littered with charity shops, an abundance of hairdressers and double denim from the first time around. It's in desperate need of a little TLC. However, in the Market Place where Bridge Street meets Vine Street there is a beacon of hope.
What began in a converted Rice Beaufort horse box during lockdown is now a super-stylish restaurant, serving awesome burgers and cocktails over two floors of an old pub. There is a huge emphasis on the locally sourced ingredients used both in the kitchen and behind the bar and a decent selection for the vegans and vegetarians that live amongst us. They also offer a delivery service on Thursday - Sunday on their food and drink to Evesham and the surrounding areas.
We had an hour and a half before Bond was due to start at The Regal, so we were just going to grab a quick burger and drink and get on our merry way. Obviously, after looking at the menu, this didn't happen.
"You must try the Crispy Belly Bites". Of course we did.
"The Baby Bacon Fries are particularly good". Go on then, you've twisted my arm.
Eventually our table was covered in burgers and sides.
The Snack Daniels burger was as good as it sounded. Salt beef slices, cola and bourbon-braised brisket and Tubby Tom's Smokey Schweet BBQ sauce all fighting their way out of the bun. It was delightfully messy, smokey and sticky, and honestly the best thing I had eaten for a long time.
The recommended pork belly bites were heavenly meaty cubes, with a crispy glaze and a subtle kick from the ginger and chilli that accompanied them during the roasting.
The "Bacon Baby" fries are pleasantly thicker than the normal skinny ones you often get and smothered in baconnaise and bacon bits, each one as addictive as the last.
Even when you know you have ordered too much, I can never ignore mac 'n' cheese on a menu. These were topped with bacon bits, chives and crispy onions and, if anything, could have been much gooier with a lot more cheese.
The same has to be said for halloumi fries, you know you don't need them but you have to order them especially when they are rubbed in Tubby Tom's espresso and smoked chipotle dust and washed down with a dark 'n' stormy.
It was all incredibly impressive from start to finish, and in fear of sounding too overdramatic, the arrival of StirrUps is absolutely massive for the town. Evesham has finally got somewhere it can be proud of and it shows other business folk that nice places can be successful there.
Countryside Day kicks off The November Meeting at Cheltenham on Friday 12th November and features some awesome displays before racing begins.
10.45am - 11.15am: Nick Gregory Gun Dog Display

11:25am - 11:40am: ROR Parade

(this display will take place over the course - head to the front of the stands for the best seat in the house)
13.50pm: Hounds Parade
Always a spectacle, this year we are pleased to be welcoming a number of packs to the racecourse for our Hound Parade led by the Cotswold.
and after racing...
