Wonderful ambience, wonderful food and wine! Small family run restaurant /bar serving real ales, fine wines and exceptional food locally sourced and prepared by a very talented chef and his wife. The service was of a very high standard and always with a smile. Highly recommend a visit and well worth a detour if passing!

Excellent food and service in a relaxed friendly atmosphere. The best place to eat in Gloucestershire without needing to be formal, a little gem, tucked away, but worth the drive Choice of dishes, well could easily have chosen 4 out of 5 of each course. The squab with almond tart, is superb, as is the scallop and pork bun, and... More

What a hidden gem of a country pub! It's the perfect mix of tiny quaint local and fantastic food that would be at home in the classiest of city restaurants. The small but varied menu is ideal, especially when mixed with the clever combinations and great quality ingredients. As a table of 6 we were looked after attentively and in... More

Been wanting to visit for a long time and for a variety of reasons it's taken a while, but wow, was it worth the wait!! Arrived on a balmy evening, had our drinks in the garden, one of the nicest Prosecco's I've been privileged to drink! Every course was an absolute delight, the bread was delicious, didn't need butter, and... More

The pub itself is small and intimate. The service is excellent, friendly and efficient without being stuffy or oppressive. Great husband and wife team. The food is to die for!!! I have been going since they moved into the place around 2007, I have never had a meal that has been less than excellent. It's maybe not the best place... More

When visiting friends in Gloucestershire we always ask if we can go to the Butchers Arms. This wonderful old pub serves fabulous food. The experience is heighened by the delightful service from Elizabeth the joint proprietor who looks after the front of house while her husband cooks. The food never fails to delight and I always have the marmalade pudding... More

Just returned from the Butchers. Our first and certainly not our last visit! Can't fault this place in anyway. One of the best lunches I have tasted, beautifully presented, well seasoned imaginative menu using locally sourced produce. This guy knows how to cook and his wife manages the front of house with great style and professionalism. Worth every penny!

We were taken here by our friends for Birthday treat, lovely evening, good food, good wine, not blown away, we are lucky to have so many excellent restaurants in area who are on a par, Inn at Welland Horse and Jockey, Amuse Bouche where it feels more special. It's very much a pub with fine dining.
