From outside this venue looked welcoming. However our opinion was changed upon entering. The bar and restaurant were extremely cold, to such an extent that we asked to have the fire lit and sat with our jackets wrapped around us.
The menu itself was very disappointing, with a choice of 4 starters, 4 mains and 3 puddings. No vegetarian choice was available. Having chosen our mains we were not given any option over how the beef would be cooked and was not told that the meals were not served with any potatoes or veg; nothing was mentioned on the menu. We then ordered potatoes to be told our only option was new.
When the meals arrived the beek was in starter-sized portions - very disappointing considering the price of £19. Although well cooked, overall the food was small and very overpriced.
The deserts followed the same path as the mains; small and expensive. The cheese platter had a good variety of local cheeses, although no one seemed to know what they were.
Such a shame but given that the food was not great and extremely overpriced and the venue cold, we and our friends will certainly not be returning. We left around 10.15pm and got the impression the staff were waiting for us to leave.
Having visited the Cotwolds a couple of times over the past year, there are fantastic restaurants and pubs where you'll be warm and get great food, unfortunately this isn't one of them.
