This place is like a reverse Tardis, much bigger on the outside than on the inside, because half the building is made up of a vintage shop.

A local Gloucestershire Ale was being served and it was superb. For a short while in the mid 1890s the inn was owned by the Tayler brewery of Northleach, which family... More
