Stayed here on business any times in the 5-7 years of 2000. Fantastic view, pleasant staff, and management was friendly. Situated on on the Land Trust pathway, there was room for a good, sometimes hilly walk. Dining could be bit spotty but great English breakfasts and a pleasant pub. I miss the quaintness of this place which seems from another... More

I had just spent 10 hours walking the Cotswold Way and arrived exhausted. When I arrived I was told by the General Manager that the company I had booked all my accommodation through had gone bankrupt and I would have to pay the accommodation upfront (again) As it turned out, his assertion was fabricated and he used a customer (me)...

Must say I was very dissapointed with the room here at the Rising Sun. The staff were all lovely and very helpful but the room we had (No22) was very poor. It looked like it hadn't been decorated since the 80's and just did not match up to the pub / restaurant. I would not recommend this place as there... More

We didn't stay but we have moved to The area recently so went for an early dinner to see the sunset and the beautiful views. We sat outside with our dog, had good food and met lovely people. Will definitely go back!

Positives: Lovely views, staff and food. Weather and company was good. On the not so good rooms are very tired looking, decor and furnishing throughout need an overhaul! Bathrooms, I don't wish to think about, but please please in general teach your 'cleaners' how to clean, dusting would be start.

It is a great location for doing this as it is about half a mile down/up the hill and alot cheaper !! but only 5 mins away in the car or taxi. The hotel was easy to find and the lady on reception was very welcoming. We were... More

Nice pub with a view to die for. Food is ok, but you'll enjoy the view more to be honest. We ordered 6 meals between us, and at least half were very (very) marginal. The prices suggest to you that it's going to be a lot more desirable than the reality. Good deserts though, if you like that sort of... More
