My wife and I stayed here in our caravan for five nights. I have to say that the food was superb, the real ales were all excellent and the efficiency and friendliness of the staff was second to none. Absolutely essential to book for lunch and dinner if you want to eat inside as the place is packed at mealtimes...

I never thought I'd have to book a table at a pub for two people to just have a drink mid-afternoon. Every table was taken, either occupied or reserved. They have a good system of marking when the reservation will show up so you know if you can use that table or not in the interim. Given its history, it's...

Hello, thanks for taking the time to feedback and we're sorry you didn't get a chance to stay and enjoy our hospitality. We do get busy, so it is always best to book. We lit the fires last night for the first time this Autumn, a lot of customers enjoy the cosy, country feel of the open fires, but they...

We had two evening meals here when visiting the area with friends. We wouldn't have had the second if we hadn't enjoyed the first so much! The place oozes character, there's a reasonable menu, a good choice of beers and the service is excellent. Be prepared to duck your head as you go in and between rooms. We'll be back...

Full of old England charm. The building is stunning and the food and hospitality is not far behind. The Sunday lunch and pie and mash was excellent and I highly recommend the puddings. Can't fault it.

We really enjoyed the homemade pie with mash. One of best pies we have eaten- great value in terms of portions. Good atmosphere and service. Recommend booking a table. Large selection of traditional ales, cider and fruit wines. Good sized garden.

So glad you enjoyed your pie, and the atmosphere! Thanks for taking the time to review us and we hope to see you again. It always worth booking, especially in Winter when alfresco dining is less of an option! All the best Nigel

Thanks for taking the trouble to review us and glad you enjoyed the visit. Parking can be tricky here, especially when it's busy, so it's always worth allowing a bit more time to find a space in the village. Glad you agree it's worth the trip and we hope to see you again, Many thanks Nigel

This amazing pub is nestled in a beautiful, quiet village full of quaint idyllic buildings. The pub is ancient and dates to around the 1400's and looks stunning from the outside, but inside even better and beyond expectations. Stone floors, wonderful timber work and exquisite fire places in the three rooms leading off a small well stocked bar. The Fleece...

I visited the village on a tour of the Cotswolds to take a photo of the pub as it has been recreated as model by Lilliput Lane (I know -- it's a strange hobby!). I already thought it would be good time for lunch and then saw the sign saying it had been chosen as the "Best Country Pub" for...

We booked in advance for dinner in view of reports this was wise.
