“The Hidden Indian!”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

This is about the restaurant at the back of the pub, which I thought was called the Maharajah but which TA can't find! Don't let that stop you finding it though, because it is excellent.

It is very modern in appearance, has attentive staff who know how to smile, and although the menu is far too long (why do restaurants think that a long menu is a good thing, when all it often means is a lot of frozen dishes?) the taste and flavours are good - and so are the quantities.

We had two main dishes, some lemon and garlic rice and a paratha (which wasn't on the menu but was cooked for me because I said I preferred them to the other breads! Nice touch).
The house red wine was very drinkable too and sensibly priced.

One word of warning - make sure there isn't going to be live music in the pub bar whilst you are in the restaurant - it is very loud and would spoil your evening. We didn't know about it but managed to escape before it started so only had a few sound checks to cope with.

“Good food and service”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Rather pricey wine list. Food well cooked and presented. Can get rather crowded so pre booking advisable.

“Traditional locals pub”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

The warmest welcome of all the pubs in the town was here at The Volunteer Inn. We were fortunate enough to be staying in Chipping Campden when a band were booked and we had a great night! Locals made us welcome earlier in the day with a darts challenge and there was free music on the juke box.
This was the cheapest pint in town by a long way. No wonder it was busy, with the brilliant attitude of the bar staff and locals.

“This is basic good food at basic good prices”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

If you want the basic kind of good pub a community like Campden offers this is it, don;t expect frills but good plain cooking with the atmosphere of a local pub. It does what it says on the tin.
