Arrived late in the evening as we decided to go on a whim. Able to accommodate us immediately. That said we did have to wait for our drinks for a while, which were given free. We shared a starter & I had the burger which was excellent. There was so much food we couldn't finish it all. The pudding menu... More

A lovely pub, serving traditional pub food, cooked to a very high standard. Lovely pub dog, with friendly staff. Rooms are pleasant and very reasonably priced; excellent breakfast. Overall a very pleasant pub, that's does the basics very well. The dog adds a lovely homely feel to the place.

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

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.
