We regularly call at this pub when travelling back to Leicestershire from the West Country. We've eaten at the Thames Head regularly over the past decade and the quality of the food has been consistent and very tasty. The young staff are friendly and welcoming and are a credit to the pub. Drinks prices can be rather on the high... More

We found this pub while looking for the source of the Thames. The owner was happy to give us directions such a friendly lady. Greeted us like old friends. We had a coffee on the way to the Thames and popped back for a sandwich and a quick half. And what lovely sandwiches lots of choice, tasty and filling. Washed... More

Came years ago and loved the ham, egg and chips. So on our way home thought we would pop in, hoping it would be as good as I remembered. It was. We walked in to the bar and were very cheerfully greeted and offered a drink. Asked for a table which we thought we might have to wait for as... More

This is a great traditional Cotswold country pub with rooms. The bar has an excellent range of local beers and is manned but friendly staff who made my recent trip very enjoyable. The bar and restaurant menus boast a good range of dishes to cater for all tastes. The portions are on the large size - you will not go... More

Have visited this pub/restaurant on my occasions before but feel the need to tell others how amazing it actually is! The food is beautiful and fantastic value for money! The lasagna being my favourite! It's nice they do both a lunch time and evening menu and with having 2 seating areas one for dining and the other a more casual... More

Although I have driven by the Thames Head hundreds of time and heard good reports of it, I had never been in. What a pleasant surprise on miserable autumn evening when I eventually decided to check it out last week. Greeted by Holly, Jamie and an open fire, we soon settled in and had a thoroughly enjoyable meal. The ale... More

We stayed 2 nights at The Thames Head at the beginning of our Thames Path walking holiday. The food and cask ales were wonderful, and staff were friendly and helpful, even giving us a ride into Cirencester the first morning. My wife says dinner our first night was "the second best meal" she's ever had. [The best was when we... More

Did not stay here so can't comment on rooms (hence the four stars) what I can say is that the service and friendliness of the staff was as good as it gets. A menu with plenty of choice at reasonable prices and for me the best pint of Guinness I have had for a long time. My other three travelling... More

My husband and I stopped by for a bite to eat. Staff couldn't have been more friendlier or helpful. Our beef sandwich and side order of chips was delicious and it was warm and comforting having the open log fire especially on such a wet autumn Saturday afternoon. Will definitely be coming back!
