“Wonderful food & atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

When we arrived for lunch on a damp & dreary day, we all loved the sight of the roaring log fires.
That got us off to a good start, then the friendliness of the staff and the excellent menu ensured that we all had a great time. For those who have food concerns, the menu has not only vegetarian options but also Celiac ones too. I haven't seen many menu's like that.
Thanks to the team for a lovely lunch and to Jimmy for keeping us entertained with his local history knowledge.

“Great food and scenery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Pure luck to find this pub and hotel - only down side was had to climb many stairs to bar etc on first floor but it was worth it cos could sit out on the balcony and listen to the sheep and watch the ducks on the lake - lovely. Good idea to have small or standard size meals - great for older people and those with small appetites. Not a huge choice but best chips ever. I only had a cheese, tomato and red onion baguette but delicious. Didn't know it was going to come toasted but made it so much nicer .But £11 for a normal plate of scampi and chips is a bit much!!. Worth a visit though

“Just by chance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Driving through the Cotswolds blissfully lost and depending on the sat nav we came across this pub and decided to go in for lunch, the landlord explained each of the real ales and offered a sample of each, it was what I would call a real country pub. The food was excellent the welcome second to none and the atmosphere supurb. Will definatley visit again if I can find it.

“Fabulous Slice of Country Life”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

The picturesque location was the first sign that this would be a meal to remember. The warm, welcoming atmosphere of the bar and the restaurant, with locals swapping tales and visitors trying the wide variety of beers on tap, struck us as soon as we entered. The menu was just right, and the food lived up to the promise. Very noticeable was the friendliness of the staff - very attentive without being too pushy. We will make this a required stop off whenever we are in the area! Beautiful for a rainy day or a sunny afternoon.
