Quaint little ex-pub. Car park full of expensive cars told the story. Meal was overpriced, drinks overpriced, service appalling. This is a pub pretending to be a restaurant. Charging London prices. Quality of food is ok but for English food not really special. The prices...More

We had water. Shared a starter which was ok but I'd made a tastier tuna tartare at Christmas. We then had fish and chips and effectively what was chicken and chips. The chips on the fish and chips were soggy and not fluffy inside. £50!!...More

A traditional Cotswold Inn with a rich history. Perfect for a Sunday roast or simply a pint of local beer.Ivy droops over the Cotswold stone of this beautiful, sixteenth century coaching inn near Cirencester. Expect proper English, seasonal pub food using the best ingredients we can find.Our lunch and supper menus are deeply rooted in everyone's favourite British classics. Tuck into Pork Belly Confit or Roasted Guinea Fowl Breast or try one of our legendary Sunday roasts which are worth the trip just for the roast alone.
