Cotswold Pub with an authentic feel

The nicest thing about this pub/hotel is that it has not suffered from modernisation. It has the feel of what you would expect from a cotswold pub. Its low wooden beams with jugs hanging off them, and its assortment of bar furniture give it an old fashioned feel. The food was good too, with a... read more

We loved it here, Very welcoming, full of regulars and characters, like sitting in a film set! Food was home cooked and very enjoyable. Not so easy to find in the dar and parking is a bit squashed but worth the effort. Staff all very friendly and helpful. Dog friendly

I don't usually write reviews but after my recent experience I felt I had to give a pat on the back to this lovely place. We went there some time ago and the staff were so scruffy and unwelcoming that we left. After some months, having heard that a new young manager had taken over we returned and were surprised...

We stayed the weekend at the Falkland arms and it was idyllic. Lovely food, great service and a nice room (though very small, as you would expect for a building this old). It is picturesque inside and out, cosy, welcoming and warm (with a lovely open fire). It also has the convivial atmosphere of a proper village local.

Decided that we would celebrate our sons birthday midway between our homes and I know Great Tew from cycling in the Cotswolds. Easy to book a table and a delightful location. There is a free public car park just yards from the pub, easier to get in and out than trying to park in front on the pub. The food... More

Great looking pub, full of charm. The food was pretty basic. Beef was over cooked, vegetables were reasonably cooked. Nothing to complain about. All OK. Nothing more, nothing less.

Had a nice dinner here on Christmas eve- nothing fancy but everything cooked nicely and well presented. We had Christmas lunch the next day and it wasn't so good but i got the impression they had taken on on too much as all my food was a bit like a school dinner, nothing was particularly nice, from the bland sprouts...

I visited this pub for pre-birthday drinks with friends. Ignoring my daughters warning we also decided to eat there as well. What a mistake We all selected the 10 oz steaks, which arrived cooked to our personal choices however were so tough and chewy as to be inedible. Even when one of the steaks was changed its replacement was no... More
