Popped into the Lion inn for a late lunch to celebrate my girlfriends 40th birthday. We both opted for the fish and chips which was cooked to perfection with lovely crispy batter, the deserts afterwards were just as nice as the main meal. To top off the meal the service of both of the youngsters that worked there was exceptional.... More

This Inn has a lot of character. The room was very comfortable and nicely decorated, BUT it was directly over the pub. We were there on a Friday night, and could hear the noise from the pub in our room. We turned our sound machine on very high so that we could get to sleep. It seemed that all (or... More

Busy pub, excellent and attentive service, very good food other than small moan about the sticky toffee pudding, texture more like a sponge. Would recommend it and will go again. The weather was none too special but the garden looked great if it had been warmer.

Three years ago we held what used to be known as a 'wake' at The Lion Inn. The food and service were excellent, and although it was a sad and reflective occasion the ambiance, staff and food enabled it to be fine. We've eaten there over the years and found it to be good, not splendid, but good or at... More

We stayed at the Lion Inn for one night as part of a self-guided walking tour of the Cotswolds. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The beer garden in the bar is beautiful and a wonderful place to enjoy a pint at the end of a long day of walking. Our room was very small but quite comfortable. We had dinner... More

The Lion Inn was short staffed with one young man who was run off his feet. He was pleasant as could be under the circumstances. The Lion Inn is a combination of pub, restaurant and hotel. Of the three, I think that they need to up their game in the hotel side of things. The room we were assigned was... More

We stayed with family and friends for the weekend. We parked in a car park at the rear of the hotel which was very convenient and there was always parking available. I didn't think much of the hotel from the reviews but in reality it is much better. The room we stayed in was beautiful. Spacious and very comfortable. It... More

I stayed here for one night while walking the Cotswolds way. The staff were all very nice and helpful. Unfortunately our room faced the ally where the rubbish bins are kept and the staff have their cigarette breaks. It was a very warm day, and our room felt like an oven. The reception staff was able to give us a... More

Came recently with friends. Lovely food although my starter could have had a little garnish. I ate baked Camembert and rare roast lamb. Service was great and the place is decorated superbly by Anton & Kay I believe. Always a treat to eat here.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Lion Inn started life as a coaching inn in the 15th Century. Over the years it has gone through many changes and played an important role in the village and surrounding areas; providing food, drink and accommodation for both people and horses, in a variety of guises. Having fallen in love with the building, Annie Fox-Hamilton took over ownership of the Lion in October 2011 and spent six months on a major renovation of the building and grounds. We were determined not to lose any of the inn’s original quirky charm; we unearthed quite a lot more than we had anticipated such as Minnie Mouse – the vintage wall painting in Room 1 we couldn’t bear to lose.The Lion has a bar, snug, restaurant, garden (ideal for alfresco dining), 6 double bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and a mini suite. All have extremely comfortable beds, their own individual character and ambiance. ... more   less
