Sunday lunch

We recently visited for a family gathering and enjoyed the three course lunch, a particular highlight for me was the risotto starter. Service was good and very friendly

Dropped in without booking a table on jan 3rd. Was apologetically told we would not be able to eat unless we waited for about an hour and a half. However we only waited for around 30 mins before being seated and having our order taken. Definitely worth the wait!! I can recommend the Beef carpaccio starter, Pork main course, and... More

While we were in the Cotswolds we caught up with some friends one weekday evening here. There's a nice atmosphere, plenty of room (you're not too close to everyone else) and very good food. Service was excellent and it's another restaurant we'd be happy to return to.

In the previous 2 years I have been fortunate enough to have dined many times at the Falcon Inn in Poulton, near Cirencester, the food, service and ale have always been excellent. This New Year, the Falcon held a special "taster dinner" and had a Magician. The food was simply superb, a great combination of flavours and careful attention to... More

4 of us each chose something different from the interesting and varied menu, and each of us commented how good our choice was...to the extent that there was much reaching across the table to taste each other's. Everything tasted fresh and was excellently cooked. Service was attentive, even tho' the pub was busy in the run-up to Christmas, and the... More

We wanted somewhere for a family are Christmas lunch in the Cirencester area. Liked the look of The Falcon from TripAdvisor reviews. We were a party of 12 and we were given our own room at the rear of the pub. The menu offered a good choice of food. TheFalcon Burger was a hit with the teens. For the less... More

We lunched here about 5 years ago and decided to try it again after moving. A nice welcome greeted us and the atmosphere was friendly and the décor lovely. The menu was good and the wine choice was excellent. We had fish and chips and a falcon burger and both meals were excellent. We will certainly visit again.

What a great place - warm & friendly welcome, helpful service, delicious value for money food in a relaxed & cosy setting. We had the set 2-course menu; creamy celeriac & apple soup, deep fried squid as starters, then classic roasts of beef & lamb, with an aubergine tagine as a vegetarian choice. All perfectly cooked & so satisfying we... More
