A warm welcome and good service. Excellent ales and wine. A comprehensive menu plus delicious extra items on the blackboard. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening meal. The chef is first class. The brandy snap that came with pudding was, in my wife's opinion, the best she's ever had ..and she's tried quite a few in her time!

We arrived to an extremely friendly welcome. The pub was lovely and relaxed and the staff were wonderful and attentive. We decided to have dinner and it was truly fabulous. Only one negative and that was they need to invest in a new mattress in room number 1 and maybe jet wash the shower. As we were staying for one... More

A typically good, country pub with all the amenities expected. The bar stocked three of the beautiful local Hook Norton Ales. No further need for comment as they are very good. The accommodation - there are four chalet-style rooms outside rear of pub - was exceedingly good with clean modern fittings and sufficient space. Food excellent. Both the Dinner and... More

We've just stayed the night in this lovely pub with restaurant and b and b. A lovely comfy bed in the peace and quiet of the countryside. Although we had arranged to have a meal elsewhere with friends the menu looked great, and if the breakfast was anything to go by ,would have been superb! The new owners have only... More

Out of the main town (village?) of Hook Norton this pub with rooms offers a full package including some excellent local real ales from the brewery up the road, good wine choice and real food. We ate in the restaurant at night and as well as a very nice meal at a reasonable price we also saw the two girls... More

We stayed there with friends for two nights. The staff were friendly, welcoming and exceptionally helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the food, both evening meals and breakfasts, was excellent. The location was perfect for our visit tot he Cotswolds.

We came across this pub on-line whilst looking for somewhere to stay near the Rollright Stones and really pleased we chose here. The price is on par with other places we looked at. The room was pleasant, clean and a good size with an on-suite. It was based in the adjoining courtyard to the pub. We had evening meal there... More

Had to stay here for two nights as there was "no room at the inn" at my parents house due to a lot if visitors from out of town. It was literally just needed as a place to sleep/shower and have breakfast. Unfortunately we really only got two out of three, and it was way over priced for that!! The... More
