We have been here several times for lunch, dinner and the occasional pint whilst walking the dog! Without exception, every visit has been a delight. Every member of staff, including the landlord, is smart, attentive, frindly, helpful and efficient. The Sunday Dinners are absolutely gorgeous- as is the rest of the weekend and weekday menu. Extensive vegitarian options, beautiful starters... More

We stayed here as it was local for a friends wedding. The room was lovely and separate to the pub so we could come and go as we pleased. The breakfast was superb! The staff were really friendly and v helpful, they arranged all our taxis to and from wedding... Thank you

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

I decided to have a proper meal and blumped for the Swordfish, what a great choice cooked to perfection, my colleague had the... More
