Many years ago, too many years ago as a young person I sat outside the Bell drinking lime and soda in the heat of the day while putting the worlds to right in the way that young people do. It was a very happy afternoon in a summer heatwave in the Cotswolds. This time it was mid winter, not a... More

Appalling place to stay - on arrival the manager said he could not find our booking,and although I told him I had my booking confirming on my phone and in hard copy he said he did not need this. He promptly tried to find it from his computer and then said it did not surprise him as nothing was working... More

We stopped here for lunch, two adults and two children (1 and 6 years). We effectively ordered 3 main courses, and some soft drinks. We waited ages and ages, and the food was some of the worst I have had, it was edible, but reminiscent of hospital or school food. The very definition of food cooked without any love or... More

We stayed here couple of nights whilst visiting Oxfordshire. Upon arrival I was pleased to find a large, spacious car park, with spaces large enough to prevent others opening their doors onto your car. We arrived mid-afternoon and were shown to our room which was in the annex at the rear of the pub. The room was large and well... More

Spent a weekend here with friends. This is a lovely pub in a charming village. The room was comfortable and spacious. We ate here both nights and enjoyed the food. Very good beer, enjoyed the wine. The staff were accomodating and helpful. On the last day I asked about walks around the area and they kindly printed out a number... More

The hotel is situated in a small Cotswold village. It has plenty of car parking spaces at the rear. The staff were very polite and friendly during our two night stay. Our room was at the back of the hotel and was both spacious and comfortable. The only negative to the room was the toilet in the ensuite bathroom, its... More

Stayed on business and was given one of the rooms above the pub. Nice room with a very comfortable bed. Bathroom needed updated as the shower was not very powerful and toilet was in an alcove - a bigger person would struggle to use the facilities. Good pub food and there is a nice room with roaring fire to eat... More
