The pub is under new management and has been transformed. It has a lovely welcoming atmosphere and we had a very good lunch at a very reasonable price. It is dog-friendly and we were joined at lunch by a large shooting party - all in their country tweeds and obviously enjoying and adding to the ambience of this Cotswold hostelry....

Our poodle was given a Bonio on arrival. Lunch was delicious. The service was good throughout and the staff were all friendly. It seems that the pub is under new management for the last fortnight and it is clear that they are trying hard. The breakfasts were excellent and were were served promptly every day. Eveming meals were exactly what...

Having had a remarkably good pub with the Kilkeney inn many years ago, Nigel and Jean White have returned to the Cotswold's and settled at the Bathurst. Based on the A435 at North Cerney, the road can get busy when trying to exit the car park. But then why would you want to leave. The welcome is warm, either in...

Not feeling very hungry we opted for the small fish 'n chips and they were very good. The guest beers were tasty and well kept and the staff helpful and friendly. We opted for a table near the stream (unfortunately also near the road) but enjoyed a relatively quiet meal. The menu seemed OK and the ambiance in the pub...

Take the Cheltenham road out of Cirencestor and it's about 3 mile. Can't fault it for ambiance-traditional- or food. We only had a pub snack but would certainly come again. Fish n chips, blt, cheese grill. All tasty.

Visited here recently following a recommendation. Lovely pint, friendly and helpful staff. Ordered lunch and went to sit down, food arrived pretty much as we sat, was amazed at the speed of service but also concerned what quality I would get. I was right to be, fish not cooked and cold, batter still runny, cold peas. Partners BLT was a...

This place is excellent! My best friend and I have met here a couple of times now but this is the first we'd eaten, I had the dog with me and she'd missed breakfast so I thought it would be a nice treat to buy her a child's sausage and mash. Fair play to the chap behind the bar, when...
