“Fabulous and relaxed Sunday lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

Booked a table for Sunday lunch having eaten here several times before and never being disappointed. Excellent roast beef, almost as good as mine! Delicious pudding and unobtrusive helpful service. Lots of space between the tables, always a plus, and they let us continue our game of dominoes long after we had finished eating! Backgammon and scrabble to hand too along with Sunday papers. Lovely.

We spent Easter weekend at The Falcon in Painswick, spending our 1st wedding anniversary there. Lovely place, where there seems to have been a coaching inn since the 16th century - we had a room looking out onto the beautiful and distinctive churchyard. Good rooms, very clean, comfortable and full of character. Excellent restaurant and pub, with a good wine list and great cooking.
The service was always friendly and attentive and made us very happy to have chosen the Falcon for our stay. We intend to be back!

Room Tip: Ask if you can get a room overlooking the churchyard and the distinctive yew trees - the view is bea...

Four of us called into the Falcon Inn Painswick for lunch, we had not booked and they were quite busy. However with no fuss a table was found. The menu was very good with some interesting items available. The service was first class and the staff professional yet friendly. Lunch itself was very good indeed and reasonably priced. All in all the Falcon was an excellent choice and we will certainly eat there in the future,

Room Tip: All I can say is the room we had was just perfect.We never looked at any other rooms.

The Falcon Inn provided a really high quality all-round experience. Our room was clean, comfortable, had a breathtaking view (over the churchyard), and was very spacious. We had both dinner and breakfast at the Inn which was VERY enjoyable. My thanks go to Sue the waitress for being such a sport and providing some very entertaining banter. If I had to be really picky I would say the bathroom was a little antiquated (although entirely functional) and there were some unusual 'table being moved across the floor' type noises coming from next door in the night....a ghost perhaps! None of this put a dampener on our stay in what has to be one of the most beautiful of all the Cotswold villages. I would certainly go back to The Falcon and would highly recommend it to all.

We have just returned from 2 nights at the Falcon Inn in Painswick and we had an absolutely fantastic time!! The village of Painswick is absolutely gorgeous and the hotel room had an amazing view over the churchyard and into the valley below. The rooms were very well furnished and decorated in excellent taste with wifi, TVs, Drinks making facilities. The first room we were allocated was spacious and had beautiful views, however there was an issue with the heating and hot water, the staff were very accommodating and moved us immediately into an equivalent room in the annexe. We ate at the Falcon both nights of our stay and breakfast and I can honestly say the overall experience was lovely. The food was excellent, the atmosphere cosy and vibrant and the pub in general had a really good "hum" about it. One of the strongest features of the Falcon is its staff who were all lovely, polite, friendly and absolutely NOT pretentious. They were efficient and gave just the right amount of attention to us and our fellow diners. Finally what can I say about breakfast... amazing! We would both happily recommend the Falcon to anyone who wants excellent food, excellent service and a lovely location. Thanks very much Falcon.

We stayed at the Falcon whilst visiting family, we stayed there because it is close by and what a gem we found! they are so hospitable. The food is really excellent, if you want eat in the evening it is best to book your table when you book your room they are very busy at times. The breakfast is one of the best we have had, if not the best, it was perfectly cooked and the sausage and bacon were high quality and the eggs free range. The rooms are comfortable and very clean, the bedding is good quality,feather duvets and pillows, the bed itself is was good, I don't usually sleep well when I am away but here I had a good nights sleep, We will be staying there again when we visit our family again.
