Beautiful looking Cotswold Pub that promises more than it delivers.

Let down by an uninspiring beer range - Bombardier Gold and one other. Surely it should be stocking some local brews. Or at least something more inspiring?

Quirky decor, friendly staff and locals, nice fire.

Would have possibly stayed for a 2nd if the Friday evening TV wasn't blaring mindless game shows.

As a Sunday lunch destination, we could not fault the food and we quite liked the distressed French antique shop look. The Hooky was served too cold (although it soon warmed up) and the only other option of Doom Bar didn't appeal. Would consider visiting again though and would give the bar a try next time perhaps.

Appalled at the decline of this once magnificent pub - not that tourists would notice and therein lies the crux with Cotswold pubs.

This was my local 5 years ago, it used to keep several decent ales well and served decent food at reasonable prices.

Today I find that it has Hooky at near 4 a pint and Hobgoblin at 4 a pint and a bacon sandwich on offer at 5.

I am embarrassed to have recommended this once fine pub to others - and distressed that this pub survives untroubled even charging stupid money, whilst far better local pubs are dieing of being off a bus route or away from a railway station.

Recently booked table and went for dinner at this pub with my parents and friends.
The pub itself is gorgeous, very well decorated and arranged inside and had great real ales on tap. Sadly the pub is also filled with bric-a-brac and antiques all for sale which is a horribly naff idea.
We enjoyed our drinks and looked at ...the very limited menu which offered all the usual pub fayre and some unusual starters such as mini cheddars in Marmite which turned out after a long wait to be balls of cheese placed on Marmite smeared on the plate. We avpided the pretentiously named 'Artisanal cheeses...'

A salmon starter turned out to be a miniscule piece of salmon with a tiny potato and two small pieces of asaparagus drenched in oil-just that nothing else.

The main course of braised beef tasted delicious but came with no vegetables at all, just a tiny ammount of potato, the portion was derisory.

The service was strained, they were understaffed and were just about polite, they brought warm bottled water to the table and when we asked for extra chips they warned us that it may take a while as they cook everything from scratch.
Five minutes later some undercooked oven fries arrived in a tiny bowl.

Poor-ish service and mediocre food in tiny portions hugely over-priced. Avoid eating here and enjoy the pub by having a drink and nothing more.

Pitched up here following a beautiful 3 hour walk across the nearby hills, gagging for a drink and absolutely famished. The place was quite busy with the blue rinse brigade taking advantage of the Senior Citizen's Winter Special (2 courses for 6.95) lunch.

The barmaid looked at her watch, raised her eyebrows, tutted and then barked 'We're closing in half an hour, so you'd better hurry up.' Her greeting was in fact the best thing about our visit.

The resulting 'food' (12.95 from the a la carte menu) was absolutely dire. Lukewarm, soggy, flaccid fish was accompanied by what were allegedly hand-cut chips. Thankfully there were only 5 of the burnt offerings in the bowl, which helped to limit the stench of rancid, age-old grease. The wizened, rock-hard, shrivelled peas were green. Further resemblance to the pea family ended there.

Even the prospect of a 3 hour walk back to the car on an empty stomach was deemed preferable to eating this, so we quickly drained our glasses of warm, corked wine and left. My only regret was, having removed my muddy wellies in the foyer before entering, I couldn't make a speedier escape.

If you absolutely must stop here, have a small thimble of tap water or possibly a bag of crisps (but only if you're really, really, really starving) and then beat a retreat to the Ebrington Arms, the Fox and Hounds, the Horse and Groom, or the Howard Arms, for some true Cotswold hospitality and truly decent food and drink.
