We were regulars for Sunday lunch before the change of management and we're open minded to give the new refurbished carpenters a go. Sadly we were so disappointed. The lovely country pub is now a dart, juke box, slot machine towns pub set in the Cotswold countryside. However we wanted to give them a try surroundings rant everything if the... More

A sunday pub lunch isn't hard to get wrong... but the yorkshire pudding and roasted potatoes were so salty that we couldn't eat them... i mean, really really salty. The waitress said she would tell the chef but I don't think this was passed on: if the staff had tasted the meal they would surely have come over and apologised!... More

We were recommended this venue by another restaurant in Burford and stopped off 19th March to check the menu which, not surprisingly for the area, was the same basic menu as all restaurants in Burford - fish and chips, burgers and risotto with a special or two - which seem unimaginative. However we saw the place was closed in the... More

I Highly Recommend visiting this pub. I would grow fat if it was nearer to my home. I'd be unable to resist. I had the steak and kidney pie and it was excellent. The gravy was full of steaky flavor and not over powered by the kidney. The pieces of meat were savory, tender, bite-sized morsels of flavor. My partner... More
