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

Went on the strength of numerous recommendations. The menu offered a varied mix of Mediterranean quisine with good value prices. All our dishes were very good and the service was superlative. Would definitely recommend. The pizzas in particular were excellent with unusual quality toppings.

What an absolute gem. Stayed here for a night with my two older children on a walking holiday. My daughter is gluten and dairy intolerant, which I had included on my booking. The staff were super attentive to this and couldn't have been more helpful, right down to an appropriate packed lunch. Rooms were spacious and very comfortable with a... More

Fabulous staff, incredibly welcoming. Inviting and stylish beautifully presented hotel and restaurant. Our meals were absolutely delicious, great service. Beautiful garden. This hotel works as a team and every member was a delight. They would (and did) put themselves out in any and every way to be helpful and friendly. genuinely special place, so much appreciated.

This privately owned hotel in Winchcombe was a real surprise. What looked ordinary belied what was beyond the front door! We received a warm welcome and were shown to our room which was lovely. The bed was comfortable, the room was well appointed with lovely soaps etc. The compendium included an interesting history of the hotel which was a appreciated.... More

We stayed here two nights on a walking holiday. The room was spacious and comfortably appointed. The towels were big and fluffy, heated on the towel rack; lovely soap products were set out. The bed linen was very good quality. The staff was gracious and thoughtful providing us with cookies, apples and pretzels for our outing.

We found The Lion Inn to be incredibly welcoming and comfortable. The room was booked for us by Andrew at Cotswold Walks and we thought it rather modest when we arrived. However, we were pleasantly surprised by the very helpful staff, the very comfortable room and all the little extras.
