“Good value, clean and comfortable rooms, nice food, cozy bar.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

We had a great family weekend here.

The rooms were good value and very comfortable and clean. Nothing super smart - but you're not paying super smart prices!

The pub itself is great - a really cosy, character bar.

The food was nice. A wide choice - but definitely more "pub grub" than gastro pub food.

Breakfast was good too.

Overall - a great value B&B and you get what you pay for!

After trying many of the pubs and restaurants in the area the crown offers the best value by far. Still retaining a traditional pub atmosphere and offering good basic pub food. Staff are friendly and the location is beautiful.
Highly recommend it.

Service was friendly and efficient but the food needs looking at .....
For a pub that's busy I was expecting the food offering to be better than it was ..... Fish cake starter. The flavour was there but it looked like a mess on the plate the tartare sauce was appalling !!
Chicken chorizo salad ...... Pre cooked chicken isn't the way forward , a nice piece of freshly cooked chicken would be preferred , the salad was dirty and bitter with no dressing which made it taste bland , chorizo over cooked and basically no effort to produce a simple dish well .... So disappointed !!

For drinks and ambience great but the food has let everything done :(

I have visited this inn on several locations in the last few years and have nothing to at all bad to say - the opposite. I have been here as part of a small group, a larger group and on cricket tour. The staff have been as helpful as you can be without being obsequious, the pub fare is great value and very well cooked, the range of beers and ciders excellent and changing, with visiting beers and ciders. The garden and patio is lovely, with great views across the valley and faces towards the sunset for those who love a good sunset.

The rooms are good, comfortable and spacious, with usual, well cleaned facilities. You need to remember a 4-digit code for access, but providing you dont take an hour to get across the courtyard, you should be able to find someone to remind you what it is.

This isnt a michelin restaurant; it's not a 5-star establishment attending to nobility: it's a small to medium sized coaching inn that is very friendly, very well run and is for all types and jolly good for it too. They love cricket, which is also great!

Room Tip: Room 12 is good sized family room.

An Olde Worlde pub in a small attractive village with a separate hotel block on two stories. Adequate free parking at rear of premises.

We had a good sized room with loads of hanging wardrobe space plus several drawer units. Comfy double bed with extra pillows. No safe or fridge but generous tea/coffee/milk and biccies plus hairdrier. Flat screen tv & scented air freshener was a nice touch. No smell of cigarettes at all. No views from the back of the building but this was more than compensated by the tranquil peace & quiet we experienced. En suite bathroom had a full size bath (hurrah) with shower, shaver socket, toiletries & nice towells. If you are not too good on your feet be careful climbing in & out of the bath since there are no grab rails.

Drink prices in the pub were, pint of cider £3.35, large wine (250 ml) £7.50, bottle of house wine £13.50

Dinner was nicely cooked with something for everybody, reasonably priced and effective service.
Breakfast was typical fare & adequate.

An ideal watering hole for your Cotswold trip.
