Had a great vegan lunch here. We are in the bar because my son brought his dog along. Very friendly staff and the food was delicious. Pub very clean but quite busy so probably best to book.

Went here for a simple pub lunch. Great choice on the menu and the food was served promptly and nicely presented. Reasonable quantities and good flavours. As country pubs go this is up there with the nicest. Will go back again.

Generally the food here is good and the drink also with a range of local tipples, in fact sometimes the food is very good. The service is generally poor and you would think some of the staff are doing you a favour

A traditional rural pub, surrounded by countryside but easy to travel to. The Kilcot was built in the 1690's and was totally derelict 10 years ago. It was bought by a local family and is still run by that family. The pub was refurbished by local craftsmen, using local materials and that ethos still continues today. Our food and drink offering is local and uses all of the produce available locally. Our juices are from the fruit farm 4 miles away and our ciders from a family firm 7 miles away. The food is all locally sourced and traceable- all of our meat comes from within a 30 mile radius. We also have an extensive vegetarian menu with vegan options. Winner of the 2017 Taste of Gloucestershire Awards Best Pub. Runner up in the Observer Food Monthly Best Sunday Lunch Category Winner of the 2017 Forester Business Awards- Best Restaurant Rooms graded 4* Gold by the AA
