Nice little place to stay, good rooms, great meals all very welcoming, this was just one night stopover on the way through the Cotswolds and can thoughly recommend it, be aware that front room are on the road side and if you a light sleeper could be a problem but to be fare you can't move a 16th century Inn!

I visited last weekend and had gammon chips and egg, partner had the scampi. It was perfect and lots of lovely big fresh fat chips! I wanted to eat it all over again! Great pint of cider and nice atmosphere.
