“A rare piece of country charm.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

While driving cross country towards Bristol I happened across this delightful old world charm establishment and was pleased to get a room , some dinner and drinks and pass an enjoyable evening. The friendly greeting on arrival and the upgrade to a superior room was apreciated. They charge £75 single occupancy in a standard room. £85 in an upgraded room and £95 for superior. I paid the £75 and not sure what I was upgraded to , but it was enough for the room they gave me.. I think all rooms should be the same price, £75 is enough . The BIG drawbackfor me, which should be addressed if there is to be a future is the total lack of WiFi and even more disturbing is NO PHONE SIGNAL FOR O2..network. People today must be contactable. Apart fron this the place is warm and cosy but the housekeeping is a little stale. Looks like they try to run the place on a tight budget, and almost pull it off. The Bar and Dining facilities are excellent, even if a little removed from the main accomodation section. Pints of Guinness at £4.40 is a little OTT as is a 250ml glass of red at £6.55 but my main of local Phesant was perfect at £14.50.. All in all I would return but only 1 night at ba time as the lack of mobile signal and wifi is too restrictive. Perhaps the propitors like it that way ?

Room Tip: I havent seen the basic rooms as i got the upgrade, but only because I asked.

Had Sunday lunch there on 28th October 2012. Food was nicely presented and tasty. The restaurant is atmospheric with great flag stone floors and a huge roaring log fire. I do have a criticism I'm afraid. It was a busy Sunday lunch session and there are only two single toilets. They are clean but you will more than likely have to wait a long time especially if there is a large party in, which there was when we went. Annoying! They do need to really think about installing decent toilet facilities. Shame because the food is nice.

We were a large party, celebrating on a Monday/Tuesday. The setting is wonderful and we found our room very nice, lovely bedding, spotless bathroom. Some others in our party had various issues re there rooms though. We note that the hotel does not have any single beds or beds that can be separated, which some of our party would have liked. It was the food that we felt let down our stay. Perhaps it was the menu with the lack of any green vegetable apart from peas! I did ask for something green and some spinach was cooked for me. Strange that a selection wasn't readily available. Must say that the breakfasts were excellent. We found the staff very obliging and cheerful and the atmosphere in the bar nice and lively.

Room Tip: Rooms to the rear of the hotel look out onto the lovely garden.

We had a wonderful lunch here last week. The food was very good, as was the wine and beer. There was a tin of biscuits for the dog, which went down well. My husband said the rice pudding was the best ever! We had a lovely wander round the garden after and Chutney the Border Terrier particularly enjoyed chasing the squirrel up the tree! A great pub to visit, just as a country pub should be, welcoming, good food and a wonderful ambience.

We were a party of six sharing three double rooms for a long week-end in the Cotswolds. The main purpose of the trip was to attend a close friend's wedding, and also to do some hiking in the beautiful surrounding countryside.

We were impressed from the moment we arrived. The staff, both in the office and the bar/restaurant, were friendly and efficient and we were made to feel most welcome. The rooms were on the small side (this is a very old building) and there was only a hand-held shower over the bath but the beds were excellent.

Dinner in the evening was taken in the atmospheric bar next to a roaring log fire was excellent with a range of choices outside the normal range as well as old favourites.

Room Tip: get a room overlooking the garden to avoid traffic noise from the road which passes close to the ho...

A beautiful setting but the front office staff were remarkably unfriendly and unaccommodating - not really ideal characteristics in the hospitality industry! Sadly for us light sleepers it's somewhat akin to trying to get some shuteye next to a gran prix circuit as the traffic starts whizzing by at 4 in the morning! However, it is an idyllic setting and the bar and restaurant staff were wonderful. If only they could run the front office as well!

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper chose a room at the rear and not above the bar!!
