Did not stay here but certainly would consider doing so in the future. Came across this delightful Inn quite by chance en route to visit my friends family. The weather was warm and sunny and we ate lunch in the courtyard. So, to sum up pleasant surroundings, good food and customer service.

Stayed one night prior to an appointment in Swindon. Nice old pub with rooms in the courtyard. My room was very generously proportioned, huge comfortable bed and large en-suite. Spotlessly clean throughout. Very friendly welcome on arrival and a very good meal in the restaurant followed by a pint at the bar with beer from the on-site micro-brewery. Unfortunately I... More

I really liked this pub- friendly staff and atmosphere, good real ale, excellent lunches, prompt service, interesting architecture/ High Street and not far from the Thames path. There was a mix of customers including families and friends of a wide age range.

We stayed one night recently. The rooms were nicely and newly decorated with the most comfortable mattress we've ever slept on. The rooms overlook the courtyard / beer garden but it was very quiet after 11pm until the sparrows started chirping at 5am!! The food was very good - home-made fennel seed bread, lamb with dauphinoise potatoes and treacle tart... More

Stayed here a year ago and returned again this April. Service excellent from arrival to leaving. Great pub with good range of ales and home cooked food. Had excellent Burger, and one of the best cooked-to-order cooked breakfasts I've had in a long time. Rooms are of quality and much better than corporate standard hotels.

Our second visit to this fabulous pub. We sat outside on a glorious spring day. Service was quick and the food delicious. Tasters of a wide range of beers and ciders were also offered on ordering. We'll be back for certain as the location is perfect for travellers.

We called for lunch on Friday lunchtime hoping to enjoy food to the standard of our last visit a couple of years ago. One of our party ordered the cauliflower and broccoli with Stilton sauce. It was passable but not particularly good. The bubble and squeak with poached duck egg was very poor indeed - a large portion of very... More

On a wintry trip to the Cotswolds, I stayed in one of the extremely comfortable, modern rooms attached to the Red Lion. The rooms are through an old door off the courtyard at the back of the pub and have a separate entrance if you prefer not to go through the public lounge. It was a nice mix of staying... More

Went to eat at the red lion on a Wednesday night and wondered why it was so busy. Then tasted the food. It was lovely a different take on old favourites. Try the ice cream for desert you won't be disappointed!
