Arriving into The Cotswolds was like entering a scene from “Game of Thrones” a road with no markings, no speed cameras, no traffic and we all had our eyes wide open for the “White Walkers” Many parts of Great Britain are beautiful (Indeed I am fortunate enough to live in the most beautiful pictures countries in the world!) The Cotswolds... More

We had just been for a hospital appointment in Cheltenham and to cheer us up we thought let's go to the Falcon Inn at Painswick which is a lovely little village and we had had a lovely lunch there before. Unfortunately this experience was not good. Our lunch was so bad we had to send it back. I had a... More

We visited the Falcon Inn for dinner because of the reviews on Trip Advisor. We certainly were not disappointed. The staff were great, the food was excellent, good location, perfect decor and atmosphere.

A perfect place to stay for visiting the Cotswolds, very friendly staff, excellent food, very nice room, dog friendly, the outdoor area was a brilliant sun trap. I would highly recommend The Falcon. We will certainly stay here again.

We had a lovely relaxed Sunday evening meal here in the Falcon Inn. Whilst none of us actually stayed at the hotel, we did enjoy their hospitality in their understated bar / restaurant. This was the ideal location for a family get together, it has so much going for it; lovely village, good central location with its beautiful Cotswold stone.... More

Stayed 1 night doing Cotswolds Way. Lovely big room off the courtyard/carpark was ideal for letting dogs out but keep them off the bowling green at the back! Good selection of real ales in the bar and an excellent dinner. My steak was cooked to perfection but I did think they could improve on the 'McDonaldesque' chips and other accompaniments.... More

We had a great night stay at the Falcon Inn. Both our rooms (6+7) were huge, clean and had the most amazing views of the churchyard. Breakfast was excellent and the dinner we had in the restaurant was enjoyed by all. No faults I highly recommend

As our wedding venue was nearby, the Falcon Inn proved the perfect place to enjoy our Wedding Day Eve celebrations for the Grooms Party. The staff were fantastic, friendly welcome and nothing was ever too much. The food (both for our evening meal and the breakfast) was superb - with the full-English being something I would particularly recommend. The rooms... More

We visited The Falcon for a weekend in February. We had a lovely large room with a huge bed with lovely crisp cotton sheets and a big comfy sofa, overlooking the famous Painswick churchyard with it's 99 clipped Yews. The food and service in the restaurant was faultless and we enjoyed the best local fillet steak ever! Breakfast was great... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Falcon Inn sits opposite a quintessential English village church with its famous 99 clipped yew trees sitting in its grounds. The Falcon was first opened as a coaching inn in the 16th century and carries out the aims of the coaching inn to this day, the transport to it is just a little bit different. Great food, service and hospitality are provided at value for money prices. Painswick is not to be missed and the Falcon is the place to stay. ... more   less
