Perfect choice for good pub grub! Easy to find from M4. Quirky and old fashioned like English village pubs all used to be. We loved it!
Stayed overnight on final night of our Cotswolds Way Walk. Tiredness and sore feet were quickly forgotten after several excellent beers and the best steak meal for a very long time. The landlord and staff could not have been more hospitable. Can not recommend too highly.
Today enjoyed a home cooked Sunday lunch, plentiful and tasty food, friendly and welcoming Landlord and staff and delightful setting. Well worth a visit,particularly if you want a pub with character and a genuine friendly welcome. Just be sure to go with a good appetite-portions are very generous:)

We stopped here for a lunch whilst doing the Cotswold Way. We had two dogs with us so we went round the back. We were hoping to eat in the beer garden but that was not open so we ate on the patio at the back of the pub. We ordered the "cod almighty" an amazing piece of fish and... More
We've just finished walking the Cotswold Way, 102 miles from Chipping Camden to Bath. We found the Majors retreat as it got a mention in our guide book. There are 2 or 3 self contained en suite rooms at the back of the pub, Roy kindly left our key in the door so we could get in no matter what... More

Our only saving grace was the lunch. Well cooked, homemade and good portions. The guy in the kitchen was the only good thing keeping this place going.... More

We went on a Thurday evening, we booked a table, unnecessary as it turned out as when we arrived there were only... More
My wife and I have just returned from a lunchtime visit to The Majors Retreat. We received a warm, friendly welcome from the lady tending the bar. As we sat we were asked if the music was too intrusive, and as we said it was, the volume was immediately reduced. If only other pubs were this considerate. Our food choice... More
We visited the Majors retreat for a family members birthday meal. The bar lady 'Viv' had amazing banter and was lovely. The chef Chris was very accommodating for all of us, but especially the vegetarian of the group. We were made to feel very welcome and were checked up on throughout our meal. I would definitely visit here again.
