Stayed in the car park overnight in motor home and used the facilities for an early dinner. The restaurant was clean, well presented and the food was good. The chef was very approachable and, although he had run out of shortbread biscuits for the lemon posset, the whole experience will be repeated at least once. I recommend the fish &... More

The room itself is very nice on first impression. Had ordered a double room, got a twin. Owner suggested moving beds as the singles zip together to make a double. When we moved the bed, there was debris on the carpet, bottle tops etc from previous occupants. Hotel advertises breakfast included. Was told by the Management that we need to... More

35 years ago this pub occasionally turned a blind eye to the 16 year olds when we snuck out of school to purchase a half pint of cider... I'm sure this would never happen now! I’m not sure if they had rooms then, but now they do and I stayed in one (Room 1) for a night this week. The... More

Good room facilities but very dark with poor lighting, not all of the lights were working. Loud noises from plumbing system during the night did not help sleep quality. Good breakfast. Evening meal very good but more standarf pub food than that offered by nearby establishments.

Friendly staff, well kept beer, good menu with fab food - lasagne was the best I have tasted in years - & chips were... More

We often walk here, from Hook Norton village, for a meal or just a beer. The bar is small and cosy, very dog-friendly, and with roaring fire in cold weather. Excellent food every time. The only thing we'd change would be more guest ales on tap. Otherwise, highly recommended.

Three of us visited for dinner. The building is very much a traditional British pub. No minimalist , trendy furnishings. It has a homely , friendly atmosphere. The menu is large enough to interest any diner, including a specials board. One of our group is Coeliac...the staff went to great lengths to ensure that dietary needs were met with care... More

Have eaten here a few times and food is always of a good standard. Visited with friends recently and had a wonderfully delicious kedgeree followed by a few pints of the local brew, a good selection available, including a specials board. Very good and worth a visit!
