Restaurant 5 North Street

Region: Gloucestershire - more
Restaurant 5 North Street is a small family run Michelin starred restaurant set in the ancient Cotswold town of Winchcombe

The restaurant is owned and run by chef proprietor Marcus (Gus) Ashenford and his wife Kate. The ambience of their tiny restaurant with just 28 covers is cosily rustic and warm hearted with its half timbered exterior, beamed ceilings, rustic walls and dark highly polished tables.

The cooking at North Street brings together the elements of traditional British cooking with the more sophisticated ingredients and techniques of classic French cuisine

Winchcombe is perfectly located for sourcing ingredients locally being situated between the Cotswold Hills for lamb, beef, pork and game and the Vale of Evesham for fruit and vegetables and Gus and Kate take full advantage of this rich abundance on their doorstep. Familiarity with suppliers they had worked with for many years was an important reason for Kate and Gus choosing to locate at 5 North Street.

It is an often repeated truism in the restaurant business that to be awarded a Michelin star is one thing to retain it is quite another.

Gus and Kate are no strangers to the restaurant trade having first met when both were students at the nearby catering college in Cheltenham. After training in many prestigious kitchens Gus first came to Michelin stardom aged 25 in his first head chef role at Lovells at Windrush Farm near Burford. He later moved to Chavignol in Chipping Norton and then Chavignol at The Old Mill in Shipston on Stour always retaining the coveted award.

In 2003 Kate and Gus decided that it was time to fulfil their joint ambition of owning and running their own restaurant in their home locality of the Cotswolds and so they settled on North Street in Winchcombe. Again the Michelin star followed and has been held ever since. The fact that Gus has continuously retained his Michelin star for 15 years is a testament to his creativity, passion and consistency
