You used to be able to find an unusual ale or two on handpull but nowadays the regular ales are Fuller's London Pride, St Austell Tribute and Timothy Taylor Landlord with Doom Bar on last night too. I tried the Pride and Landlord which were both average. Now operated by the neighbouring Bistrot Pierre restaurant and feels much more like a hotel bar than the freehouse it describes itself as.

A favourite of the local CAMRA brigade but I've never been sure that the best beer in town is to be found here. My pint of North Cotswold Blitzen was agreeable but I'd have tried something different had I been staying for a second pint. NC's Winter Solstice, Butty Bach, Purity Saddle Black and Old Hooky were also on sale yesterday afternoon.

Nice selection of beers - Butty Bach, HPA and Hobgoblin available, plus a Bird's Brewery Stout that I enjoyed. Friendly staff and nice atmosphere - enjoyed the visit

The beer selection on our stay was dominated by Green King and Hook Norton although the GK offerings were not the standard ones. The House beer from North Cotswold was fine. The best by far was HPA from Wye Valley. Bar food was ok. Very busy with locals. On the Thursday night one of the bar staff seemed to be having a competition to see how many glasses she could smash in the most spectacular fashion. Both the bar and restaurant are outsourced and need to bring in hands on management.

Service was slightly apathetic last night, 5 people behind the bar all faffing around and just one actually doing any visible serving. Fortunately, the queue to be served was virtually non-existent. Only the Bird's Nightjar and Greene King Brasilia were new to me, the others were a little mainstream (e.g. 2 from Wye Valley, Marstons EPA etc). I tried the Nightjar which was £3.30 (standard Bear price) and in very good condition.
