Called in on the off chance for Sunday Lunch. We had read the reviews which all gave good reviews but in this case the lunch was not that good or value for money. The beef was very fatty, poor choice of vegetables (beetroot for sunday...More

Delicious menu, we struggled to choose and booked straight away to come back and try other dishes! All homemade and you are even shown the ‘food miles’ that all ingredients have travelled, which are minimal since the Kilcot makes great use of all the wonderful...More

A second visit but for midweek lunch rather than the Sunday lunch last time. Excellent food (individual rabbit pie for me mmmmmm) and a good choice of beers in a very pleasant "ambience" as some say nowadays. What's not to like? Well worth a visit...More

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.

Thank you for the question JillKirk. As the other kind reviewers have said, we do allow dogs on the patio, both front and back and we do indeed put out water for them. They are also allowed in the bar area of the pub- but... More

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
