Hi We are visiting the Cotswolds this weekend and would love to visit. We are lacto vegetarian so don't eat anything that contains eggs or alcohol. Are you able to cater for our dietary requirements if we booked?

Do you have vegan options?
25 September 2016|
Answer
Response from AlanS238 | Property representative |
We can adapt our regular menu where possible. It is fairly limited as cheese and eggs are widely used but can offer good salad and potato options. We have entertained vegans pretty often in the past. Thanks.
