Stayed in Painswick on our Cotswold Way walk. The Royal Oak is a "locals" pub. It was busy, lots of friendly people, the food was very good. Reasonably priced and good food. The staff are very nice, helpful We enjoyed our drinks and meal here - can be busy....

Grabbed dinner at this great little (and old) pub - enjoyed the fish pie and great wedge of bread; cheese board and port for dessert. Very friendly and highly frequented by locals.

An interesting pub located in the middle of Painswick. It offers a good choice of beers and typical pub food. There was a friendly welcome and an efficient, swift meal service. Nice setting in an old building. Expect this and you will not be disappointed - it does not pretend to offer fine dining. Prices are reasonable - for the Cotswolds!

We were staying at a B & B in Painswick and popped into the Oak on the first night to try the local food and drink. We wished we hadn't bothered. My wife had the Ceasar salad which was lacking in everything and very small. I had the fish and chips nad it was barely edible. The fish was stale , poorly cooked, very small and covered in thick half cooked batter. We only got both dishes after a 50 minute wait from placing our order. Go somewhere else if you want decent food at a reasonable cost
