Reviewed 25 April 2016

Welcomed even before you get there, nothing too much trouble, comfortable bed and simply amazing food. Staff are terrific, motivated, extremely professional and friendly. Phil, the landlord, is everywhere being relaxed and welcoming but I'd say nothing escapes his eagle eye. They don't just go the extra mile, they go an extra marathon. Staying there felt like being at home...

Although there are other lovely things on the menu, we came here for the pies! There is a great choice of fillings and I very much enjoyed having cauliflower cheese as part of mine, which I have not come across before. My husband went for the wild boar and cider one which he also thoroughly enjoyed. I went for the...

My partner and I are regular customers in the farmers boy as we are local to the area. The food is absolutely out of this world and the pies are just fantastic. We have never had a bad meal here!

Yummy The service was a little strained (by not the fault of the two lovely lads that were running the show) A little busy and maybe a little short staffed? Poor guys did a fantastic job.

Hi Evee, Many thanks for your Fantastic Review! I'm pleased you enjoyed your experience at The Farmer's Boy Inn, being a country pub on a main road sometimes means that people don't necessarily book so we can be busier than expected which also makes it hard to staff sometimes, so i'm pleased the boys did well.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Simply put, we love food. Not just for what it is, but for the experience that accompanies it. Homely surroundings, great company and conversation,attentive waiters, who become friends and of course fine wines from around the world. After a evening of gastro food delights, gourmet pies and laughter infront of the open fire retire to our courtyard of boutique individually designed rooms and drift off, to wake up to the sounds, sights and smells of the idyllic gloucestershire countryside. Followed of course by a hearty breakfast and maybe a stroll up the majestic May Hill ... more   less
