“Lovely overnight stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

My daughter and I arrived at the Merrymouth on a freezing cold night. Although staff were busy they took the time to make us feel very welcome.
Our room was beautifully warm and cosy. The beds were so comfortable, and the room had everything we needed. The bathroom did need an update but it had a bath as well as shower, and it was so nice to relax in. Loads of hot water and an extra heater.
The atmostphere in the pub was lovely, staff were very attentive.
Breakfast the next day was really good, with very generous portions. The Merrymouth is very good value for money. Our only regret was that we only stayed for one night!
Many thanks to Bill and all the staff.

I took my girlfriend on a surpruse weekend away - we both loved it. Bill & his staff couldn't be nicer & more helpful. We'd both definitely recommend staying here, it's a great base from which to explore the Cotswolds!

Went for a lunch on a Monday - unfortunately several of the menu items I wanted we're not available as they were awaiting a delivery of meat (following a busy weekend according to the host). Surprisingly this did not dampen my enthusiasm for the pub as there were plenty of other choices available especially the fish specials. The food was served hot and tasted fantastic - the service was good also. A very relaxed and friendly atmosphere overall. I would certainly return but probably not on a Monday !!

Recently spent two nights at the Merrymouth and had a great time. It is a great base for the Cotswolds and we used it as a base for Cheltenham races.Beautiful old pub with plenty of character a statement which also applies to the landlord Bill.Mo and the rest of the staff looked after us really well and we found the food superb. The quality of the meat on the mixed grill was exceptional and the breakfast was just about the best we have had in our many racing trips over the years.

We have been coming to the Merrymouth for 3 years now.Food really good (gary always has sausages and mash on his 1st night back!) Dogs welcome,with lovely walks behind the pub. Rooms are warm and cosy with freeview tv. Ideal after a long walk with the dog. There is no need to adventure out in the evening because the Merrymouth has everything you need for a good night. see you in the spring..

Our Friday night quest for good places to eat near our home in Upper Rissington continues with a visit to the Merrymouth Inn in Fifield, probably our closest local, we weren't disappointed. Starters of home made tomato and basil soup was delicious, and hot rather than lukewarm which some restaurants seem to think is acceptable. Main courses of fillet and rump steak were well cooked and the meals generous, so much so our Weimaraner Izzy had a nice 'carry out' when we got home. One thing we always notice when we enter any eatery is the welcome, our host in the Merrymouth was warm and friendly, it's not difficult and costs nothing but the establishments that get this wrong suffer more than they realise. Yes we will return.
