We're local & involved in hospitality ourselves. We came for Sunday lunch as we have on many occasions. We'd like to mention an exceptional young man who waited on us, Kirell. The restaurant was busy & our meal was initially served a little too cool for our liking. However, it was soon heated up, it's quality in no way being... More

We stayed here this week for a two night stay. The rooms were fantastic, full of character. The breakfast was great and the staff are very friendly. Definitely worth a visit. We will be coming back for another visit soon.lots of lovely Cotswolds villages nearby.

This is a small village Inn. The staff were all helpful and friendly. My room was outside up a small staircase with a low door. The room was spacious with a small siting area (shame there was no TV) leading through into the bedroom and a good bathroom, with good toiletries. Breakfast was reasonable but was let down by over...

Stayed in the Inn for the New Year's celebrations. Room was comfortable, characterful and clean. Bathroom clean and adequate, shower only but that suits us. As the rooms are over the bar area, the faint chatter can be heard during the afternoon and evening; much in keeping with a pub/B&B and fortunately we were variously in the bar and restaurant...

This restaurant offers pleasant surroundings and an interesting lunch menu. The three tapas dishes we ordered tasted nice, but the portions were very small. The waitress seemed to have forgotten the second part ouf our order, so there was a very long wait for their special-sounding, but actually average pizza which arrived without crockery or cutlery. We were hoping to... More

Lovely accommodation, wonderful food,very friendly and helpful staff. We also had the pleasure of the local brass band playing Christmas carols in the restaurant. At the end of the evening we relaxed by the log fire with a glass of wine and chatted to some other guests who were also staying and we were all of the opinion that the... More

The ambiance is great and the rooms although a little austere are comfortable, we enjoyed our stay, the staff were very helpful and the ales excellent. We ate in the restaurant and the food was bordering fine dining, very impressive for a town pub. As the rooms do not have televisions I think that they should have a radio or... More

This is what The Hollow Bottom USED to be. I only went to the restaurant, did not stay at the inn. Great food, attention to detail and wonderful service. The quality and imagination that has gone in to the menu is delightful. I'm so happy, this will be one of my regulars.

This was our second visit after coming here last June. The personal touch that made this place seems to have been lost. Service was annoyingly slow and unprofessional. Be careful not to enter the restaurant for breakfast unnoticed as you can sit there for 15 minutes without being attended to. I ended up leaving the breakfast room as the ambience... More
