Lovely food. The staff were very helpful and friendly. A very nice traditional pub, with strong references on horse racing.

Strangely very quiet on both Thursday and Friday nights when we visited though only ate on one of these. Beautiful spot in Guiting Power and a thorough horse racing theme throughout however the food was pretty disappointing at the prices charged. Menu options sounded decent enough but really weren't executed well with poor quality meat in two of the four mains we chose. Might've been an unlucky night for us but we didn't return to eat but found two other restaurants in the area on subsequent nights that were much better at slightly lower prices. Chef needs to pull his jodhpurs up....

Wow, thank you so much for taking the time to leave this review for us. 216 reviews in just over a year would suggest that you are indeed an expert in this field and I will definitely be taking our former Young Scottish Chef of the year and also of Claridges with 32 years experience to task over the "poor quality meat" you described. He is obviously getting a little old and rusty and I will need to "pull those jodhpurs up" as tight as is humanly possible!

One of the best and most atmospheric pubs I have ever been to. The Hollow Bottom manages to
cater to a broad selection of tastes in every way and still manages to be a cosy and intimate place serving lovely food. Just as a traditional pub restaurant should be. The staff are exceptional and always welcoming, even when very busy! Probably the very best place to be for race week!

Went here on a Friday Night after the circus in Winchcombe. Good atmosphere and service and we had a relaxed dinner. Food excellent and plenty of it. Super country pub with plenty of parking and great restaurant also a wonderful FREE shuttle bus/taxi service for those wishing to partake in the alcohol and not have to worry about driving home. Wonderful - thank you Hollow Bottom!
