My visit was a flying visit on the way to a meeting in Cirencester and fancied a bite to eat on the way and a family member had mentioned Jolly Nice. I opted for one of their free-range roast chicken and tarragon sandwiches. It was a blue sky day and opted to eat in the picnic area rather than in one of their yurts.
Shopping was not on the cards this visit but had a look around and was very impressed with the selection of local foods. If I was travelling home I would have loaded up with some game, vegetables and possibly too much from their larder. This is the sort of place a foodie like me describes as foodie heaven.
