We visited as a family group with two caravans, as a pre-Christmas get together, staying in the small site to the rear. Pitching is not easy due to the slope in both directions but we managed it! We did not eat in the pub but visited twice, sampling all the Hook Norton beers on both occasions. The beers were all... More

We've eaten at this lovely country pub a few times in the past, and were lucky enough to get the last table of four for Christmas Lunch this year. The food was plentiful, delicious, and served piping hot on plates hot enough to warrant a warning from the server. In past (with other management), we have had amazing roast dinners... More

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

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
