We stayed here for a couple of days while in the Cotswolds. Very nice room on the top floor, spacious with a bath and shower. They have parking in back for customers. It's in the middle of town. The breakfast was good.

On a tour of English Civil War connected places this scored twice. King Charles stayed there before Naseby and it overlooks the memorial to the last battle. I spent an hour hanging out my window which looked directly onto the memorial. Nice window seat too in tasteful moder decor. Be prepared to lug suitcases up multiple flights of stairs (or... More

Staying in this lovely town for a week's holiday and decided to go to this hotel to try out their Sunday "roast dinner". Were given a table squeezed in between a party of four and the coffee machine. Door wide open and there was quite a draft despite the day being really warm. However it was around 7:30 pm so... More

We were very impressed with the quality of our food. The starters and main meals were equally delicious and great value for money .We would certainly recommend . The interior was cosy and quirky and we were greeted with a warm welcome . Staff polite and courteous which is very important to us .

Had a lovely stay in this beautiful old inn. The rooms were comfortable and the staff friendly. The car park is behind the pub and small so it's pot luck if you get a space. The salads in the evening were unimaginative but the breakfasts were good. Overall a lovely stay.

Always nice to stop by here after a Cotswolds stroll... Food and drink are both great, albeit at near London prices.. so it was quite an expensive pint of Ruddles County and sandwich, though very tasty...

Stayed at this Hotel for a couple of nights in May. Room was more like a tiny cottage, with living room and en suite bathroom downstairs and bedroom with very comfy bed upstairs. We stayed on a B + B basis and also ate there in the evening. All the food was delicious.

In for drinks at this olde worlde inn in the market square of Stow on the Wold and found selection of ales and a selection of cocktails to entice the ladies. Looked a reasonable menu for food at reasonable prices but had already eaten. Nice atmosphere if you like history. Friendly service.

Stayed here for 3 nights in February. The staff are helpful & friendly. The room we had was perfect for our stay, everything a bit creaky, but that's expected in a hotel like this.

Thankyou for posting your kind review. As the building is 500 years old you can expect a creak or 2 from the floor boards! All adds to the charm. We're please you had a lovely stay with us More
