“Q. Who does the best ham, egg and chips for miles around?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013 via mobile

A. The New Inn at Shortstanding does! Generous slices of local ham, eggs cooked to perfection (neither hard nor too runny) and crispy chips all garnished with fresh salad. Good value too. My partner really enjoyed his ploughmans which was a veritable cheese fest.

“Excellent food and warm welcome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

During our stay at Forest Holidays I bought the family, five adults one child and a baby, here for our evening meal. We each had a different meal and all meals were served at the same time. The food was excellent and menu varied. Every one was very pleased with the food. The bar also offered a good choice of beers. We ate in the restaurant but there is a garden for al fresco if you wish.

“Bank holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2013

My partner and myself with our 11year old son ate here three times during our camping holiday just up the road at Coleford. Food was excellent and reasonably priced, portions generous and well cooked, would recommend it as a treat if you're camping or just passing! Staff are pleasant and friendly and choice is good with starters, main courses and sweets on menu drinks are reasonable and can recommend the Stowford cider for a nice long cold drink and on colder days/evenings a real fire heaven!! If I was in the area again would definitely revisit

“Lovely food...and loads of it!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

Ate here during the bank holiday weekend in the conservatory at the back of the bar. Service a bit strange - kept getting ignored by the waitress - and she did try to charge us for drinks we'd already paid for at the bar (!) but food was great.
