I will be returning to the area in the future so on return will definitely book here again. Great staff and beautiful surroundings. The Welsh pub theme was a wonderful touch for my welsh friend and the court yard the rooms overlook was stunning. I would highly recommend to anyone and if in doubt then doubt no more, book now...

Nice and clean rooms, could do with upgrading as they are now looking a little bit 80's. Food in the restaurant was nice and plentiful, especially the lamb shoulder which would serve a family of four! The staff were nice and friendly and attentive. Good value for money. Ideal for a stopover.

Like a lot of pub/hotels, I wish there was aircon or fans in the room. Other than that, nothing to complain about here. July 2015, visited during one of the hottest periods on record. This only compounds my issue that staying cool without fans or aircon in such heat is virtually impossible. Should be standard issue. Right, The Bird in... More

The setting in a hamlet with fields red with poppies across the road was lovely. The car park was large with only a short walk to our room in a courtyard just yards from the pub. Our twin room was large, clean and comfortable as was the bathroom with the added bonus of having windows on three of the walls... More

I am sorry to say we didn't experience the wonderful service other reviewers did. Very upset to have an unpleasant altercation with them, after complaining we had to wait 25 minutes for breakfast despite advising we needed to be a way fairly quickly as we were working at a local show when we first ordered and then after having to...

We were two couples, one of which were elderly parents staying here for four days to visit the Cotswolds. We cannot express enough how well we looked after. The staff were brilliant, very friendly, caring and made our stay relaxing and enjoyable.

3 night stay as base for Blenheim and Cotswolds. Quiet location with large motel style rooms in separate building. Excellent food and beers. Only minor problem was all draft bitters off on first night but made up for it on last 2 !

We took our mum here for lunch for her 60th birthday, the food was really good, reasonably priced and the place was very clean and well presented. The staff were all very pleasant too. Would very likely visit here again for a nice lunch.
