Reviewed April 14, 2013

We stayed at the local campsite so this pub was in walking distance. Service was very good. Good choice of real ales and food with a large specials board. Food was very enjoyable and our dog was even given a chew. Recommended.

“A nice pub!”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

We visited for dinner as we were staying nearby for the Cheltenham festival. We ordered burgers and were not dissapointed, they were huge and very tasty. The house wine was also very nice, and there were a number of guest beers on tap. The staff were very accomodating and helpful. This is a nice local pub, and well worth visiting to eat or drink.

“Excellent service and food”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

My husband and I went to the Garneners Arms for dinner 2 weeks ago. It was Sunday night and quieter. Food was lovely and staff was friendly.
I had a pint of bitter (Track Record by Prescott).
I think they take good care of beer because it was really nice!
If we go to Cotswolds again, we will definitely go back to the pub again!

“Alright, but could have been better”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

Although this is an old traditional country pub, it was far from cosy - I was frozen ! The poem on the wall, written in 1921 by a long gone villager, made pleasant reading whilst I waited for my food. When it arrived, I thought the goat's cheese starter was small in size and big on cost -rather disappointing. The main course was satisfactory, but when I paid the bill, I was stunned to find it came to nearly £18, with one modest drink, even with a discount as I was sent by a nearby B&B. Will go elsewhere next time in Alderton.

“Excellent value”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

The all day breakfast, (lage version) was superb value, the best ever my husband had encountered. My fish pie was creamy and delicious. Staff welcoming and friendly, they made sure we were very well looked after. Would certainly recommend it.
