Since the relaunch they have done a great job of maintaining the balance between being food-focused but also allowing locals, walkers, etc to simply drink at the bar. Good beer selection but the food is the star. It is definitely a significant step up from pub grub and priced accordingly but we have eaten there a few times and it has always been excellent. Others we know report the same. Dogs also welcome.

Nice refurbishment of a pub that was previously going downhill. The new owners also run the Ebrington Arms, rightly regarded as one of the best in the Cotswolds. A good selection of real ales included Uley in good condition. Friendly staff. We didn't eat -- the menu prices were sky-high.

Recently (1/12/12) reopened after being closed for about a year, seems to have had a major refurb which has been done well.

Called in for lunch and pleasantly surprised to see a selection of four beers from different local breweries on offer, including Prospect from Shotover Brewery, Isis Pale from Compass, Pride of Oxford from Oxfordshire Ales and Uley Bitter- all on good form. Would have been nice to have had a few different styles though.

The food coming out looked good, the table next to us had impressive looking venison burgers. We had a browse of the menu, looks to be aiming a bit above the 'pub grub' market.

I'm not sure what I was expecting when we journeyed here - perhaps a modernised hotel-type pub. But I was slightly surprised with what I found. This pub is located in a building that looks like an old farmhouse. It is quite an old building featuring a dovecote on the exterior walls. The bar inside is traditional and was fairly busy with locals. A piano can be found in the corner alongside an open fire. Live music is advertised. Two real ales were on - Olde Trip and Morland Original. My only slight gripe was that the tables were not being cleared. The previous customers' glasses were still on our table as we were about to depart. Overall though, I quite enjoyed my visit here.

We have been to this pub a few times on our way to or from a campsite nearby. The garden is quite big - no play equipment but still a good space for children to run around a bit. Inside is lovely - big old pine tables and a flagstone floor. The food is great - we had some of the home baked ham which was delicious, and the children's menu has good choices which you know they'll eat. Homemade sticky toffee pudding and custard finished the meal nicely. The landlady was exceptionally helpful and really made us feel welcome. I would go out of my way to go back to this pub.
