We like to try out different places locally and The Falcon did not let us down. A lovely country pub with a nice interior. Plenty of space around the tables so not crowded in - nice atmosphere and more importantly excellent food with good friendly service. Highly recommended and we will no doubt go back again.

We really lack great places to eat around Cirencester. The Falcon is lovely, great food, quiet but alive and great service too

Booked last minute on a Thursday evening. Had a lovely welcome and shown to our table. Very good service and lots of choice. I'm fussy with steak and had the rump steak and could not fault it at all! Piping hot, lovely dressed salad, chips and peppercorn sauce! Washed down with some lovely Pinot Griogio! Would recommend to anyone and... More

Advise you book! Popular Inn with imaginative menu. We had Sunday lunch 3 courses for under 20 pounds. So very good value. I had warm pigeon breast, butternut squash, beetroot, onions with chocolate to start. A very tender lamb roast and the delicious rhubarb tasting plate. Would have preferred HOT plates and food, but tasty nevertheless.

We were walking in the Poulton area and stopped for lunch at this very smart restaurant style pub. The soup was well flavoured but I was surprised that it came in a small bowl without bread. Similarly, the smoked mackerel salad at £12 was delicious but not at all generous. Over twenty pounds for a few mouthfuls and a beer... More

We ended up at the "pub" by chance and are so glad we did! The service was excellent as was the food. It serves a variety of interesting, yet extraordinarily tasty, dishes so you can try something new! I would recommend the melt in the middle pudding.. If they still have it! We will be back for sure.

We dine here regularly and have done so for several years plus, with complete satisfaction. The food is always very good, often excellent, and served by friendly and highly competent staff; on our recent visit the fish pie was the best I have ever had. Only comment I would make is that if you wish to hold a conversation during... More

I attended a most enjoyable dinner at the Falcon to celebrate a friend's 80th birthday. The food was excellent and the service could not be faulted. I will be back.

On a recent visit to Cirencester My partner and I were looking for somewhere which offered the ideal combination of good value for money and good food, and having settled on the Falcon Inn, we were not at all disappointed. Starters of Mackerel with Asian salad and Sweet Potato and Coconut soup were followed by mains of Roast Pigeon breast... More
