Description: Welcome to The Award Winning Farmer's Boy Inn Longhope Simply put, we love food. Not just for what it is, but for the experience that accompanies it. Homely surroundings, great company and conversation, attentive waiters, who become friends and of course fine wines from around the world. After an evening of gastro food delights, gourmet pies and laughter in front of the open fire retire to our courtyard of boutique individually designed rooms and drift off, to wake up to the sounds, sights and smells of the idyllic Gloucestershire countryside. Followed of course by a hearty breakfast and maybe a stroll up the majestic May Hill

“Pleasant country inn and decent food”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

A nice little pub, quite cosy. Very eclectic decor, everything from farming equipment (fitting considering the name) to Oriental, Irish (the owners' being Irish) and various other nik naks. The staff seemed friendly and when I asked to change my cutlery because the fork was dirty they were more than happy to oblige immediately.We had intended to try something from the extensive pie menu because they all sounded delicious but in the end opted for the specials. Hubby had fish and I had pork. Both very nice - not the largest of portions but tasty all the same. One thing that did make us giggle was the poor waitress, one of the other patrons enquired as to the kinds of mustard that were available......she replied.....'um, yellow paste'. Bless her. I'd certainly pop in again if we are passing, determined to try one of the pies, if they are as good as they sound may even purchase some from the shop to take home. By the way, its not owned by Phil Vickery lol

“Dropped in on the off chance”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

On holiday ,looking for houses and hungry,we came across this roadside inn. It was 2.30 pm and we asked if they were still serving food..... Oh yes they were!!!!! I had a fabulous gourmet burger,served with amazing crispy pillowy chips, onion rings to die for and green salad, my partner had one of those FABULOUS pies. The service was friendly and prompt, and the inn was cosy and welcoming. Unfortunately we didn't meet the owner, rugby player Phil Vickery! Would I recommend this inn?? YES,without hesitation.

“Lovely meal!!”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

We had dinner at the pub on Monday night and it was excellent. The service was friendly and we each had a pie which were both very tasty. I had the mash and husband had the chips - both perfectly cooked. We can't wait to go back. Would highly recommend.

“Sunday Lunch”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

Having had good meals on many previous occasions I took 2 friends to experience Sunday lunch. The meal was a dissapointment with poor service which spoilt our day. Staff didnt seem concerned with our complaints. It appears that the proprietor is only interested in self gratification and not maintaining standards. Not everbody is interested in pies ?

“A Pie to Remember!”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

Very nice surroundings to try one of Phil Vickery's Mad about Pies - Wild Boar and cider - very nice. My wife had a vegetable Lasagne which was very well presented. The drinks were very good with a good selection. The service was prompt and firendly.
