Parsonage 53 offers fine dining, casual lunches and classic British flavours — all with top wine options and superb service.

Offering a surprisingly wide variety of experiences for diners, Parsonage 53 is serving up a fresh take on feasting in Dursley — with a menu packed with classic British flavours.

Situated in the centre of Dursley, and set within an unsuspecting quintessential countryside building, the independent Gloucestershire restaurant offers more than first meets the eye.

It's the only eatery in the Cotswold town with an entirely British menu, for example, with options including a twice baked Double Gloucester cheese soufflé with mustard cream; fillet steak with dauphinoise potatoes, onion puree and shallots; and Gloucestershire old spot sausages with mashed potatoes, greens and onion gravy.

So, whether diners are hoping for a quick lunchtime bites while catching up with friends; or aiming to impress a date with an evening of fine dining; or are simply looking to enjoy a crisp pint or cold glass of wine in a welcoming setting, Parsonage 53 promises to cover all the bases.

Already proving extremely popular with customers from across the county are Parsonage 53's Sunday lunches: featuring traditional roast options, from juicy chicken breast to crispy pork belly and all the trimmings  — with advanced booking recommended. 

The eatery prides itself on using local produce wherever possible — the beef from Walter Rose butchers is marinated for three days and slow cooked sous vide at 55 degrees for four hours to ensure the most intense flavour, while vegetarians can enjoy a celeriac and mushroom nut roast alongside sage and onion stuffing with gluten-free cauliflower cheese. 

The kids menu is refreshingly all homemade. And there's a pleasing dessert menu too!

While Parsonage 53's main restaurant caters to more formal outings, visitors to its Castle Bar can settle into a comfortable space for some coffee and cake or retire after a delicious meal with a pint — with Jeremy Clarkson's own Hawkstone brand available on tap and bottled.

The bar also boasts its own courtyard garden, too, excellent for the sunnier seasons for days and evenings spent relaxing with pals.
