Cotswold Life Food & Drink Awards 2018 Restaurant of the Year Finalist
"A little corner of Cyprus in the heart of the Cotswolds..."
Situated in the heart of the beautiful Cotswold town of Chipping Campden, next to the old woolmarket, you will find Michael’s Mediterranean Restaurant.
Chef & Restaurateur Michael Alexiou bought Woolmarket House in 1986 and transformed it into the charming and unique restaurant it is today. The building dates from circa 1720 and features two magnificent inglenook fireplaces.
Dine in relaxed surroundings with the warm ambience of open fires in the winter, or on our pretty terrace in the summer. We offer traditional Greek cuisine, complemented by modern, Mediterranean dishes. From an array of Mezze dishes, fresh fish, seafood and seasonal daily specials, to our renowned “Marathona” fillet steaks; all our ingredients are locally-sourced where possible.
