Visited the Volunteer last week for the first time in a year. Girls night out. I had forgotten what a fabulous, friendly local this is for locals, visitors and the sporadic local like myself. Great service, excellent prices and a great atmosphere, the open fire added. I don't go out much locally but will be heading here on any future...

I booked a room with them, booked a car for the 27-29th of the month. They recorded the booking for the 24th (the day I booked) and then when I didn't show up, they charged me 99 pounds. They called this my honest mistake; I take it to be theirs and with their reservation system. I had no intention to...

Oh Dear....the booking was made via our booking system..."Little Hotelier", this means you enter the dates for arrival and departure via a computer....really rather clever as there is no room for human error....unless of course you enter the wrong dates!! For the record you were not charged as we did not have the details of your credit card security code....

We stayed two nights (Friday and Saturday). The room (9) was big, large queen size bed and en-suite. Breakfast in the morning was good and kept us going till lunch time. The down side is the room was directly over the bar and so the noise of the activity in the bar (music) but worse, the 'drunks' shouting out in...

We've stayed here several times over the last few years and we love it. It's quite basic but in a nice way. The rooms are unfussy but comfortable and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The pub is excellent and the best bit is the fantastic curry restaurant. I've eaten curry all over the UK and in some of...

This is a great area for tourists; the benefit of staying here is that this is where you get to meet the locals. The bar staff are pleasant, professional and welcoming. A full English breakfast is offered but is easily customized to get the bits that you really like. We struggled to get WiFi in our room but could connect...

Beautiful traditional pub. We stayed in room 1 and received a lovely welcome from the busy bar staff. The room was superb and had everything we needed, full of character. We ate in the Indian Restaurant which was excellent in food and service. Very reasonably priced and a vast menu. The pub was very busy and is a traditional one...

The staff that we encountered were very friendly and its a nice cosy place. Room was clean and comfortable but only had a view of roof (which seemed odd as there didnt seem to be anyone else staying there so thought we could have been given a better room). We had a meal in the Indian restaurant and that was...

Dear Carolanslow I can only hold our hands up for the noisy night you endured. It was our annual staff outing and proceedings went on far longer than expected on our return to the Volunteer. My sincerest apologies Mark

We have been here many times over the past few years and always have a wonderful stay. The location is superb, this really is one of the prettiest Cotswold villages, perfect for a weekend retreat. The pub is a treat, with well kept ales. Looking forward to our next visit already.

We stayed at the Volunteer in October, we were pleasantly surprised by the rooms and the small bar. All the staff were really helpful and friendly. Location is great for the Cotswolds Way or just a nice stroll through the very pretty village.
