Chose this place for lunch stop on a bike ride purely based on past Trip Advisor reviews as I didn't know the area. Glad we did - location was perfect and the pub is really lovely. Service was prompt and friendly, but what really stands out is the food. Between seven of us we sampled a fair bit of the... More

I, my wife and grandson dropped in for lunch and the food was more than we expected. The roast lamb was a very large portion as was the steak pie. It was that delicious we had to do it justice and strggle to finish. We will be going again next week.

Maybe we were just unlucky as others seem to like this pub. We picked a weekday when it wasn't too busy, but still had to wait an hour for our food. The food turned out to be overcooked and disappointing. There is a huge choice of pubs in the Cotswolds, some of which serve excellent food for lunch - this... More

This pub serves consistently good quality food, Sunday lunch is excellent with locally sorced meat and lovely fresh veg. Evening meals are equally good with a lovely cozy atmosphere. This is a horse racing pub with lots of memorabillia and staff from local stables drinking in the bar. The landlady, Beckie, runs a tight ship and the staff are hardworking... More

Much thought has been put into the menu here and because of this, the food is of a very high standard. We had a table of around ten people, each with different meals - not one person didn't enjoy it. Also, the service was excellent with the staff being neither under or over attentive. The pub is very cozy and... More
