Brand-new for 2023, Longborough Festival Opera has revealed its collaboration with Cotswold Fine Dining, offering festivalgoers a selection of luxurious three-course menus — adding even more magic to the operatic experience.

Whilst some attendees choose to bring their own picnics, LFO is encouraging people to make the evening truly special at its exclusive on-site restaurant, just a short distance from the theatre.

Cotswold Fine Dining has built up an outstanding reputation across both the Cotswolds and Oxfordshire, catering for a range of prestigious venues, including University of Oxford. Now, they will be showcasing their culinary skills at this impressive festival. 

Every opera at Longborough has a 90-minute interval for dinner, with the restaurant offering a three-course menu to enjoy during this time. Costing £65 per person, the menu changes for each performance, with a wine list supplied by Toke's of Chipping Campden.

Menus include dishes such as hand-picked white crab, avocado emulsion, confit chilli and shallot dressing and a radish salad to start; pan-fried duck breast with duck fat dauphinoise, greens, glazed chicory hearts and red wine jus for mains; and peanut and chocolate cheesecake with coconut crème fraiche for dessert. Vegan and gluten free options are also available. 

Please note, the restaurant is sold out for Götterdämmerung but Donizetti's L'elisir d'amore, Monteverdi's L'Orfeo and Purcell's The Fairy Queen currently still have availability.
