I have been a regular here for a few years now and always enjoy going back. We took a recently bereaved friend for lunch and had a nice time . We ate in the restaurant which was on the quiet side for a Friday lunchtime so in hindsight wish we'd eaten in the bar . Three of us had the... More

Superb large room , hot and powerful shower, but let down by unfriendly staff and poor service at dinner on Sunday night, the fish was so over cooked we were not charged for it, this was very disappointing , however breakfast was excellent and the waitress was very pleasant in the morning

We have recently stayed for two nights in the Country Room, which as a previous reviewer has said is a good sized room overlooking the village green. The room was extremely comfortable with a bath as well as a shower. Everything was spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. Having a cafetiere to be able to make a real cup of coffee... More

Stayed here for 5 nights over half term with our 2 children aged 8 and 11 in z beds, we stayed in the Cotswold room which was lovely, plenty of room for the 4 of us. The beds were all comfy, the room was cleaned to a high standard and a lovely touch of homemade biscuits left each day gave... More

Stayed for just one night in the Country Room. Very comfortable and clean, room a good size with views over village green (we liked the touch of providing fresh milk in a thermos). Only one small negative comment is that the shower could do with updating, but not a problem. Dinner was excellent, with strong emphasis on local produce -... More

This place is great! Rustic, cosy and beautiful. The food was gorgeous and the service was excellent. Our room was called The Study, the decor was lovely and gave you all the modern touches that make your stay comfortable. It has a huge bed and beautiful bathroom with a lovely big bath and a separate shower. We loved it all... More

Stayed for 2 nights, wonderful room, very attentive staff, very good food. One small gripe, probably nothing they can do about it but internet connection is sloooooow!!!!. Will definitely be back, but probably won't bother bringing I pad 😀.

We have visited the howard arms on several occasions now for lunch and dinner. The food is FANTASTIC, home made, using local produce and is always amazing! The staff are super friendly and accommodating to any requests you make. There's always a lovely bustling atmosphere in the bar and restaurant. Hope to visit again soon, can't recommend highly enough!

We had visited the Howard Arms once before for lunch and made a mental note to come back and stay. We're glad we did. We were complicated guests (two vegetarians travelling on bicycles - sounds like the start of a joke) but we had a really warm welcome. They made some space for our push-bikes in the store cupboard to... More

Our table we booked for dinner for the two nights had... More
