We had a very pleasant stay at the Volunteer. En suite room was large, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was relaxed, plentiful and tasty. Very good value for money and we will stay again. The pub is a 'proper' pub much frequented by locals.

Fab location in possibly the nicest Cotswold village of them all. At the quieter end of the main street opposite St Catherine's Catholic church. Very clean, no frills room and laid back but attentive staff. Bit of noise from the pub, but wasn't an issue. Not a boutique hotel but neither does it try to be. Will definitely return.

We enjoyed a relaxing overnight stay after a large party of us had a delicious curry night at the restaurant. Welcome was warm, atmosphere was great in the pub with roaring open fire and flagstone floors as well as sports available.. Room was scrupulously clean, wifi is very fast. Bed was comfortable. We then enjoyed a lovely morning mooching around... More

Myself and my boyfriend had booked 2 nights away from London, but unfortunately I fell very ill and other than a trip to the doctors, I had to spend the whole time in bed. All staff were so lovely to us both. They cooked me soup even though it wasn't on the menu because it was the only thing I... More

Have just returned from a nights stay with friends. Met by friendly bar staff, helpful check in. Clean, spacious room. No problem taking children into bar for drink before meal which we decided to have in the Indian Restaurant. Lovely cooked breakfast next morning which also included choice of cereals, toast etc. Would stay again.

We booked this weekend away last month and having read the two most recent reviews arrived on Friday with some trepidation. Any fears were swiftly allayed by Jenny who showed us to our room and managed to book a table in the busy Maharaja for that evening. The Volunteer is a busy pub frequented by locals who made us feel... More

We booked on line and the booking was for two rooms sharing a bathroom. We arrived at 2.00pm there was no one anywhere to either welcome or show us to the room. We were given keys and told the place was shut. When we returned the bar was open and the bar staff told us we had to pay in... More

Thank you for your constructive review. As you stated you booked on line and arrived at 2pm. Had you read the booking terms you would have seen that check in is from 15.30. Believe it or not the reason for this is that the premises does not open until 15.30 from Monday to Thursday. We are first and foremost a... More

Stayed here for two nights in October 2014 and overall the experience was disappointing. The bed was uncomfortable, the duvet cover was stained (!) and the towels were ripped and clearly long past their sell by date. For some reason I couldn't get BBC 1 on the TV in my room.The staff were quite sullen and unwelcoming and the breakfasts... More

Stayed for one night on a saturday to break a long road journey. Spacious and comfortable room with wifi and a hearty breakfast on Sunday morning. Friendly and welcoming staff and very good value for the Cotswolds.
