Lovely location and very friendly staff. We ordered off the cheaper menu as it was lunchtime and so got two meals for about £12. When they arrived shortly after ordering, it was a bit of a disappointment. My ham, egg and chips was ok, the ham was wafer thin and not what I expected (normally large... read more

Food is always lovely; wer're never disappointed and the atmosphere is pleasant and relaxed. We prefer eating in the restaurant section as it is a little quieter.

I love this place, specifically because it boasts some of the best views from Cleeve Hill looking across to the Malvern Hills and beyond. The outside seating is best on a pleasant afternoon, however the interior is more than comfortable enough. Ask for a table in the conservatory to get the best of both worlds, the outdoor feeling with the... More

This is a regular haunt over many years , but, sadly it is becoming increasingly likely that will end except for drinks. The location remains beautiful. The food is no longer of even "standard" pub grub , dried out, overlooked poor quality. Roasts that have run out by 1700, Turkey that is dried out, ocean puff pie was dried out... More

This restaurant is surprisingly big and spacious and has great views across the Cotswolds. The restaurant meal was disappointing. We had the 'open seafood puff pastry' with creamy white wine sauce. It was a bit dried up and the sauce was dried up as well. Adequate but not much better. Would go back for the beer and view but would... More

Really original countryside pub, good food, nice location. I had the Sunday lamb shank roast and gingerbread crumble. Delicious. Reasonable cost. Service: need some improvement in order not to forget food delivery to the table. Illy coffee: need to improve the execution.
