Doom Bar, Butty Bach, Mad Goose and Wickwar BOB were on sale today. I had a pint of BOB which was OK but I noticed that the beer was pulled through halfway through my pint so I guess I had just missed out on a fresh barrel. The pub has got some character but it looks like it needs a bit of TLC. Fine for an end of walk pint though.

It's a cosy, friendly place, with a slightly lived-in feel in this very picturesque little Cotswold town.

Given the setting, the pub perhaps lacks its own historic features rather, some might say.

There were three ales on when we called, London Pride, Wye Vally Butty Bach and Wickwar's Bob. We had the last and it was fine.

The Plaisterers is more of a drinkers pub though, and the beer is considerably better.

The pub is ok. More a restaurant with a bar, but the public bar is reasonably pleasant. The beer was a bit below par when I sampled it, but a pretty good, if slightly knocked through and adulterated pub experience.

Fast, friendly service. Perfect olde English pub with well kept ales and outstanding home cooked food at very reasonable prices. Desserts are to die for.

Delightful pub situated as you come into Winchcombe from Cheltenham side. Visited on a weekday lunchtime on a break to Cleeve Hill and popped in for lunch. Good beer, good food and reasonably priced. Staff and locals seemed very friendly and would definitely recommend.

After a 12 mile walk on the Cotswold Way we fancied a pint, arrived at half two, just missed the food, three ales on offer. The Sharps Doom Bar was spot on.

Locals very friendly. Nice little Pub, will go again if in Winchcombe.

Excellent food, excellent beer and excellent food. Well recommended you take a visit here. Four real ale's were on tap and all were top quality.

You enter into a small room with pleasant surroundings including 2 of the corner cupboards that gave the pub its name. Off this are 2 more romms, 1 dark when we called, the other forms the bar area beside the restaurant and has a wall that looks as though it has come from the long torn down abbey.
Serves well kept local Stanway ale plus Greene King and Hook Norton and a choice of wines available by the glass. The restaurant has a standard looking menu but then 2 blackboards arrive with the specials, with fish specials priced around 10 offers good value. For dessert try the meringue roulade - a swiss roll made with meringue instead of sponge
