Dined here on a recommendation and was not disappointed. What looks like a typical thatched roofed country pub (it is!) just off a main road through Shipston on Stour. A warm welcome from the gentleman behind the bar we found our selves directed in to the cosy Thai restaurant attached. The food and service was outstanding. The menu just right...

Superb Thai meal in a lovely thatched pub with great ales. Quirky but couldn't rate highly enough! Staff were impeccable and friendly, dogs are allowed and both the food and real ales were lovely. Really didn't expect this bizarre combination to work but it did! We will be back.

What 'Baggie' does best !! Taken a wonderful old pub, off the beaten track and turned it into something of character. Wonderful choice of proper beer and the Thai Restaurant if you want something different, is well worth a visit; enjoy !

My partner and I spent the weekend in Shipton on Stour, at the George hotel, and went for a stroll around the town on the Friday afternoon. After stumbling over the Black Horse (its not the easiest of places to find) we were delighted to find an authentuic 'olde worlde inn' with a good selection of real ales, a real...

Found ourselves in the area on Friday evening without a booking. Lovely staff soon accommodated us and the food was excellent quality. Really enjoyed our 2 course Thai buffet for £15.95 a head in this quaint little pub with lovely atmosphere.

What can I say! So glad we have discovered this place. The food was fantastic. Beautifully cooked, succulent and tender meat, sauces full of flavour and spices without being overpowering or stuffed with msg. Service was spot on. Relaxed friendly atmosphere. Very reasonable prices. All in all - fab! We'll be back!

Called for Saturday lunch for a drink and decided to stop for their Thai lunch. The pub itself is quaint and old with a good selection of beers and wines, the staff went out of their way to be friendly. The thai meal itself was second to none although you could have the special lunch of starter and a main...

Referred to as The Hidden Gem - WoW! Lovely old pub, thatched, flagstone floors, friendly people and great staff! Had a fantastic lunch deal of Thai food - not what you would expect in this setting but beautiful fresh and tasty food. A hidden gem that really shouldn't be hidden!

We went for a drink at lunchtime in this beautiful thatched pub and had a shared Thai mixed starter as a light lunch. It was so good that we booked for a full meal in the evening. Tiny restaurant which only seats twenty or so, so best to book. Wonderful authentic Thai food at very low prices, and presented excellently....

“As a hotel, a typical B&B budget type of accomodation but, as a local pub and restaurant with a good choice of real beer - wonderful.”
