After reading reviews on the lion inn I decided I would like to go there for my 50th birthday 22nd August. It had a nice ambience and was busy at 8pm. We had a nice table for 2. Starter each, main course and shared a dessert, bottle of wine £105! Portions were small but tasty. I thought it was over... More

We stayed for the weekend and had dinner there one night. The food was absolutely delicious and the atmosphere is just lovely. The beds were the most comfortable I think I've ever slept in! Everything is decorated beautifully and we'll definitely come back. Can't recommend highly enough.

I recently visited for the first time, and the only reason I haven't given it five stars is because I only had a main course so would at least like to try a starter too. Likewise we weren't drinking wine on this occasion so I would like to sample this too. The menu choices are excellent and the ambience and... More

We visited the Lion Inn for lunch with my husband and daughter during our visit to the Cotswolds. After a nice walk and a recommendation from one of the locals, we went to the Lion Inn for lunch. We had one of our best Sunday Roasts so far. Service could be better but the overall experience was excellent. We will... More

We visited the lion inn recently and we were very disappointed 😞 with our experience, we found the food is way overpriced for what is produced on the plate. There are practically no vegetables and very little of anything other than the meat or fish.

After a long day's hiking in the Cotswolds we walked into this lovely and very welcoming hotel. The room was at the back and lovely and quiet. It was a decent size (for the UK where rooms are generally much smaller than we are used to) and had a modern bathroom with a lovely shower - just the thing to... More

The Lion inn is a special a place. The food is excellent, the real ale is very good and ambience is great, particular the idyllic beer garden. Yet the service fell short at the last hurdle but the jockey got up and rode the horse to the finish line! We asked for a coffee to finish the meal. It never... More

I have eaten in The Lion Inn several times now, the food is amazing, cooked to perfection. The menu is constantly changing, using seasonal vegetables. The food is cooked to order but I have never had to wait very long. The staff are extremely friendly & professional. The atmosphere is very relaxing & the décor inside the inn has been... More

After a long hike (16 miles) from Lower Slaughter, we arrived at The Lion Inn in Winchcombe. What a dream! Our room was at the back of the property. It was INCREDIBLE! There was a sitting room with board games, a wonderfully comfortable bed with fantastic bedding, and a clawfoot tub to soak away the day's incurred aches. We spent... More

Very pleasant room and toiletries. However the reason I have only scored this Inn average is because after 1 1/4 hours of waiting for an evening meal mine arrived tepid in temperature and poor flavour, my husband's meal was better but still not worth the wait. In addition to this the generator for the cold room was below our window... More
