Very friendly staff fantastic food Beautiful location lovely room food blew us away Highly recommend beautiful setting we will definitely be back thank you very much Baz and Fred we were on our way to stay with friends in Broadway and will deafly recommend it
Dined here for lunch as a couple, with our dog. Sat in the lovely courtyard, and it was busy with locals, tourists and their furry friends. Food was superb. Recommend a lovely loop walk on footpaths between Coln St. Aldwyns and Bibury. This is one of the best dog-friendly pubs we visited in the Cotswolds.
Very nice guest room in a perfect location to explore the Cotswold. Our room (14) was quite big and nicely decorated. They have a restaurant with good food, although a bit pricey. We definitely recommend this place for your trip to the Cotswold.
We dined here on a Saturday evening, food was excellent. We choose a selection from the starters as we fancied everything. Grilled octopus, chicken tacos, truffle and parmesan chips, followed by panacota. The whole dining experience was full of flavour, everything was fresh, and cooked perfectly. We will definitely return, hopefully soon. Super from start to finish. Charming waitresses, service and ambiance very good. The Car Park is large, so perhaps think about parking along the road.
A seemingly quiet spot this Coln St. Aldyn, but with it being open Mondays and Tuesdays, our Tuesday night dinner was surprisingly busy. I had a very “medium rare” and juicy burger, while my partner enjoyed the less juicy (but still tender) chicken Caesar salad. We enjoyed both the food and the atmosphere. Would be nice sitting outside on a slightly warmer evening.
We met friends for supper that was lovely , ordered our food , had a bottle of wine but waited far too long for our supper . Sadly the service wasn’t great but the food was yummy . Too slow , luckily we weren’t in a hurry but we were hungry , Also we like to leave a tip the old fashioned way not adding it onto the card machine !
We stayed for a wedding for 3 nights. We booked the family room (room 16 fyi) so as to accommodate our toddler. The pub is in a beautiful village with lovely interior and garden area, although we felt the accommodation was slightly lacking in comparison. The accommodation was just a bit of a shambles. If you have a child, don’t book the family room. There is absolutely nothing family friendly about it. It’s the first room on the ground floor next to the entrance to the building, with no soundproofing at all, so every time someone comes back to their room you have the front door slamming and people talking right outside your door. The room, whilst large, backs onto the pub garden, so no sleep for anyone until that empties. There’s no bath.. which isn’t the end of the world, but would be handy for a family room. The noise from the room upstairs was terrible. You could hear EVERYTHING, including the 5am toilet trip. The sofa bed was made up for our arrival which was lovely, but we had brought our travel cot so didn’t need it. We put it away to give us more space but unfortunately the floor underneath hadn’t seen a hoover for some time. The bathroom could also have done with a really good clean. On a positive note… I politely complained via email at about midnight on our first night and a lovely lady came straight over to us at breakfast to apologise and offer an alternative room (room 12). Still no bath, still needed a really good clean and smarten up, but a much nicer room in a far quieter area of the building, and we had no further issues. It was explained to us (as per another review) that the room had recently been converted from an office and they had received a number of similar complaints… To be fair, they were proactive and didn’t make us feel uncomfortable at all about having complained. The new room was ready by 11am and we weren’t rushed at all to move, it was all handled very very well, which we were very thankful for. Breakfast was really lovely and service good. We had amazing weather and were able to enjoy sitting in the garden, which was delightful. The pub itself is really pretty and in a lovely village with some nice walks. With a little bit of attention the accommodation could be so much better. The wedding, at a venue owned by the same company I believe, was AMAZING.…
We had come here after a one night stay in another highly rated establishment where the manager was charmless and not helpful. That place was redeemed by the other staff working there. Becky and Molly who looked after us here were very friendly. The food is very good, the beer is very good and locals seemed friendly. A good experience. Recommended.
We stayed at this hotel for a family wedding. We stayed in the “family room” - although how it can be called a family room is beyond me and even more so - how it is classed as 5 star is even further beyond me. The bathroom was filthy and in need of urgent upgrade. The walk in shower was discoloured, full of what seemed like lime scale and the shower handle fell off in your hand when turned. The windowsills were stained and grubby. There was no privacy in the bathroom (or entire room) as the window opened/looked out on to where cars and people walked straight past. The whole bathroom was soaking after use - not ideal when you have two young children who could slip in there. For a family room - you would think a bath would be provided to bath children… it wasn’t. We had to bath our children in my parents room. The pull out bed stopped worked and our daughter had to sleep in with us. There was nowhere to hang clothes or store cases. The full length mirror was dangerous - we had to move it behind some furniture so that our 20 month old did not pull it down on herself. If you are providing such furniture in a family room that is intended for children to be in there - the fixing of such furniture should be top priority. When we arrived there was no cot bed as requested and no bedding for the pull out bed - we had to ask twice for it. Upon check out we were told the room was an old office that had been refurbished - it has not been refurbished to a 5 star standard at all. It is sparse, no character, cold and seemed like it’s been converted with a few bits of old and odd furniture chucked in there so that the hotel can generate more money from another room… Compared to many other rooms in the hotel that were beautiful- the family room sorely lets the hotel down and it is far from worth the £280 price tag for a two night stay! I have emailed a complaint and my original email and further chasers has gone un answered from management. If you want to stay here - make sure you avoid the family room and don’t expect much in customer service should you have a complaint…
We have recently stayed at the New Inn for one night on route home from Cornwall, celebrating our honeymoon. Our first time visiting the Cotswolds, which we were very much looking forward too. In short, the place is a little gem as previous reviewers have mentioned. Lovely location and atmosphere. We had beautiful weather so enjoyed drinks outside and soaked up the atmosphere with the locals. The burgers were 10/10!. We booked a suite (room 10) as it was our honeymoon, our last stop on an 8 night trip. The New Inn was the only accommodation to not acknowledge our honeymoon in someway on our travels, which I always think is a nice touch. Had the other B&Bs not gone above & beyond we probably wouldn’t of noticed. The decor is lovely and I completely see the vision. However it needs TLC. Our suite had a leaky toilet, stained toilet seat, water marks down the walls, peeled paint on the ceiling, the statement bath needs some attention in terms descaling & there were stains on carpets. All minor things, which in my view could easily be rectified to avoid future disappointment. Service was okay. Breakfast service was slow and we could hear a few guests discussing the lack of attentiveness in terms of service. The stay served a purpose, however wouldn’t return during our next time in the Cotswolds, unfortunately.…
