What a lovely place! Everything from the start made us feel welcomed and looked after. The welcome was delightfully understated but as helpful as we could hope for. The room was beautifully presented, A really delightful personal touch was being able to order freshly made tea and coffee (of any kind) to our room... much better than just a kettle... More

Wife and I stayed here with our pooch on our anniversary weekend. Arrived a bit wet and muddy from a day's walking but immediately welcomed in. Well appointed room with dog bed already in place. Dinner was fantastic - rack of lamb and the steak along with a delicious French red. Very helpful staff who were all most accommodating with... More

Booked for Monday lunch 27th October for 10 people (7 adults - 3 chidren 6 - 13yrs) on Sunday night. Courteous and accomodating on the phone. On arrival were greeted by a crackling open fire in the comfortably and chic furnished snug adjoining the bar and a friendly welcome. Table for ten had been beautifully laid out in the restaurant....

Spent one night there this weekend and it was excellent in all areas. Every member of staff we encountered were friendly and helpful and helped to create a welcoming, relaxed atmosphere. Room was small but lovely with very comfortable bed, no noise at all and spotlessly clean. Food in the restaurant at night was very good as was the service... More

We had the 'mini-suite', which is spacious and tastefully decorated to a high standard. We got an off-peak rate which made it good value, but having stayed a couple of other places in Winchcombe, the Lion Inn is definitely a class above the rest, and worth the small price premium. Good selection of ales at the bar. Food and service... More

I'm not entirely sure where to start with this review! My partner and I arrived at the Lion at 6pm on a Friday evening a few weeks ago. We were red-faced, miserable, somewhat soggy and very, very tired from an ill-advised 24-mile stretch of the latter end of our attempt at the 103-mile Cotswold Way walk. We were so relieved... More

I absolutely love the interior at The Lion. It is beautifully done in lovely relaxed country style. We had supper there on Saturday evening. The food is very good. The wine is wonderful. The service friendly and efficient. Definitely worth a visit but book in advance as they get very busy.

Drove sixty miles to eat dinner here on our wedding anniversary and it was so worth it. A beautiful village enhanced by a lovely evening and a never having tried The Lion before the best was yet to come. We were welcomed as regulars and sat having a g&t in the tastefully decorated bar while browsing through the menu. The... More

We have enjoyed a number of lunches here where the standard has been excellent so we had no hesitation in taking weekend guests for dinner. Sadly it was a disappointing experience. The overall atmosphere was excellent - plenty of diners and plenty of noise. Our white wine arrived and it was at room temperature which didn't bode well. Starters were... More

The title says it all The rooms are decorated in a very tasteful style, small shower rooms, but more than adequate. The food is always great and the full English was lovely. The garden is certainly recommended in the summer for eating out! We will definitely be back Thoroughly recommended
