Myself and my wife stopped here for a quick drink we also had our two dogs. We sat in the garden which was quite small but cosy. The bar man was very friendly and welcoming and the locals friendly. Nice place.

This is a real pub with a warm welcome and good food. The crab salad I had was excellent. When I'm next in Shipston I will be sure to visit again.

I came here for lunch with friends after a long walk and we were delighted to walk iinto a 'real' pub which had not been turned into a fight e dining experience.

Referred here for a good pub lunch by another place in town. Nice food but also, the place had a lovely atmosphere, people were enjoying themselves but somehow it felt like we were not excluded. Swampy was very helpful without being too pushy, and after our lunch we visited the Rollright Stones at his recommendation. Shame I couldn't drink as... More
