I tried to book 6 rooms here for a special birthday party. Had sent three previous emails (only got one brief reply not answering my questions) and wanted to discuss and confirm. Landlady eventually answered and said she was too busy (6.15pm) to do a booking and go online. It was not a straightforward booking so needed to discuss. While...

PLEASANT BUT OVERPRICED Efficient welcome but more thorough knowledge of available parking would have been useful. A notice on the gate leading from the pay and display would also have been helpful especially when arriving in the dark as we did. Room 2 is very quaint and characterful but there is a distinct lack of useful furniture. For example, cases...

Stayed at the Lion as had been booked into another restaurant in the town. The Lion was extremely friendly with the Sue and Trelawney being chatty and willing to get anything to ensure your stay was good. The snug was particularly cosy, we'd gone to Winchcombe intending to do some walking but the weather and the easy chairs in the...

Spent a lovely weekend at the Lion Inn - the perfect base to explore the Cotswolds in close proximity to Cheltenham and Stow on the Wold. Winchcombe itself is very peaceful. We enjoyed the multitude of independent shops and charm of Stow. The Lion Inn is wonderful - very friendly, helpful staff, perfect bar and snug with roaring fire. We...

Very comfortable pub, dining area and snug with a roaring fire on a cold winter night. Rooms (only 8) are up to date with all modern conveniences although ours was in the front and above the snug---so a bit noisy. Good food and a great wine list with reasonable prices. Public car parking accessible from the rear garden. Staff (Kim...

Lovely atmosphere at the Lion, the staff could not have been more helpful. We were in a rush as we were attending a surprise party and wanted a meal before we left. They accommodated us on the dot of their restaurant opening time so that we could get away quickly. Comfortable & cosy bedroom. Would definitely stay again when in...

A title correction 😁 still a lovely boutique pub,hotel. If your eating try and ask for the restaurant section,they have about 3 tables in the bar which can get quite crowded. There is a lovely log fire in the winter. Car parking at the rear of the hotel which is pay and display. Take a pair of slippers as the...

Beautiful little pub with stunning open fire. Very picturesque and perfect for a lazy weekend away. We ate here twice in two days instead of venturing further afield as it was just so good. Food was great, lovely varied menu with good veggie options. Gnocchi with artichoke was lovely (portion a little small) and hake was excellent. Fast service, great...

We booked three days over Christmas and it was bliss. We arrived on Christmas Eve and just melded into the whole atmosphere with ease. The staff were friendly, warm and welcoming. Our room (4) was warm, and cosy and tastefully decorated. The ensuite shower was just high enough for me to stand under, i'm 6'5". One small issue, one plug...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Lion Inn started life as a coaching inn in the 15th Century. Over the years it has gone through many changes and played an important role in the village and surrounding areas; providing food, drink and accommodation for both people and horses, in a variety of guises. Having fallen in love with the building, Annie Fox-Hamilton took over ownership of the Lion in October 2011 and spent six months on a major renovation of the building and grounds. We were determined not to lose any of the inn’s original quirky charm; we unearthed quite a lot more than we had anticipated such as Minnie Mouse – the vintage wall painting in Room 1 we couldn’t bear to lose.The Lion has a bar, snug, restaurant, garden (ideal for alfresco dining), 6 double bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and a mini suite. All have extremely comfortable beds, their own individual character and ambiance. ... more   less
