Caunton Beck, Caunton

Recommended by 'Good pub guide', this was not the easiest to find and was in fact the second pub I came to in Caunton coming off the A1. (Other one does not appear on the site yet!) However, was very impressed with the service and quality of the food. A reasonable selection of real ales (Black Sheep, Woodfordes, Thwaites) and a quite cosy nature contributed to the experience.

Only gripe is it seemed eerily far North for such a Londonesque establishment. Those seeking more of an authentic 'pub' experience should bear in mind that the 'dry' side of the business has been made the priority, with food quite pricey , although excellent. Certainly worth a slight detour (maybe 20 minutes) from A1 for a lunchtime stop off. Very clean and decor appeared almost brand new.

The John Bunyan, Coleman Green

Excellent local, albeit slightly off the beaten track. As per comment tregarding favouring locals over visitors, pub tends to have a local clientele of necessity, due to difficulty of getting here by foot, but staff mostly very welcoming. Squarely targetting the over 40s, seems to have stood up well both to the recession and the previous government's war on the pub.

Mcmullens tied house so usual selection of AK and Country (both of which well kept) Food unpretentious, good portions and well cooked. all in all, an excellent pub, the likes of which are sadly a growing rarity amidst the theme pubs, faux wine bars and chain houses which seem to proliferate in town centres. Thoroughly recommended.

The Seven Springs, Seven Springs

Very much what it says on the entrance. A 'Hungry Horse' pub tucked away on the main Cotswold Way between Gloucester, Cirencester and Cheltenham. Pub is very large with upstairs dining as well as a large split level ground floor.

Portions of food were very large but probably not of the highest quality. Beer range limited in terms of Real Ale to Greene King IPA. A stopoff point if you're after cheap nosh. Otherwise, pretty average.
