Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Vicki, Christian and Luke were absolutely amazing behind the bar! Vicki especially was outstanding, went above and beyond for us, would absolutely recommend the Hog! Ask for Vicki behind the bar!

Having completed a circular walk that started and ended in Horsley, we thought we would pop into the local hostelry as a reward at the end of our travails. And what a joy it was! The welcome was friendly, the Moretti was cold, and the...(assumed) regulars seemed to be chatty and sociable. We started in the garden but then rain threatened (wrongly, as it turned out) so we took our second drink inside: a lovely choice of places to sit, some very "loungey"; we picked a table by the window where we found a huge array of box games to select and play! We will most definitely be returning to this place, not least because we now have four stamps on our loyalty card towards a free pizza or pint!More

The best local you could ask for. Super friendly pub with loads of different activities/ themes through the week. Family- run comes with a big welcome and huge soul. Extremely reasonable prices. Food is unpretentious and filling. On different days you might find yourself at...a quiz night, board games, pop up restaurants, live bands and jam nights or just a good chat with the locals. Highly recommendedMore

In my final weeks living in the Cirencester area, my girlfriend and I decided to travel around to places that we had never been locally as well as re-visiting areas we knew well but had not properly exploded. The village of Horsley in the Stroud...area was a new exploration (although we had been in and around Stroud many times before). Given that the village and my girlfriend share the same surname it was a must. During our travels around the Cotswolds, we have visited plenty of pubs, cafes, and eateries. Many of these are perhaps best left for those who frequent and enjoy them so much - the locals. Indeed many are somewhat unfriendly to a stranger’s face we have found; while we find this most amusing knowing that our meer fresh-faced company is a curse, it does not inspire one to return. The Hog at Horsley is not one of these establishments. Indeed, it is the friendliest place of hospitality that we visited along our jaunts, being cheerfully welcomed and not stared down by suspicious locals, although many locals were in on this rainy Sunday afternoon, as we could tell by the fact the barman seemingly knew them all by name - a delight in today’s society of strangers. We drank cider and ate from what, although somewhat limited, is a very modern, well presented, refreshingly simple, hearty, and filling menu. We would have left wanting for me if we weren’t so full from sharing a pizza and some vegetarian chilli chips (sadly the meat option wasn’t available, as we were kindly informed before ordering - but were told there was plenty of the vegetarian option. It suited us fine). I have rated the Hog at Horsley four stars, only for the reason that I personally find it a shame not to get a proper Sunday lunch in an English pub on a rainy Sunday afternoon. Although the Hog offers meaty rolls as a substitute for their inability (or perhaps unashamed unwillingness) there were none left by the time we arrived and ordered food. Despite this, the food we had was first class and filling, without much waste. It was flavourful and well cooked, and you felt that you received value for money. The cider we drank was refreshing after our day walking around the Cotswolds in the rain and we could have easily drank a lot more of it. We look forward to returning to the Hog at Horsley again one day, where we hope we will not be too late to grab ourselves a meaty Sunday roll. The pub is vibrant, modern, family friendly, and there was a real sense of community atmosphere when we visited. We highly recommend, and have few doubts that had we been able to have a proper Sunday lunch (or meaty roll - they advertise quite clearly they do not serve a full roast dinner) that we would have rated it five stars.More

What an amazing village pub, as people not from the area as visiting for the horse racing we were made to feel very welcome. During our week in the area we visited three times and just love the environment of the pub featuring great background...music. The food was great the small menu allows for the food to be cooked fresh and taste great. The hog pizza was my person favourite. The quiz night held once a month was so fun with the owner taking up the mic and being our jolly quiz master. The pub is just a short walk from the air BnB / house we had rented and I recommend anyone who visits the area to come to this great pub. Thank you to all the staff for making our week so lovely.More

We were staying at an Air BNB down in Washpool, literally down the hill. On arrival we thought we'd check out the local pubs, on arrival Luke and Christian made us feel so welcome. A great locals pub, but they make holidayers feel local, and...very welcome too. We were in the area for 3 days and visited the pub each day. It's warm and welcoming, reasonably priced and the food is what you need when you're in for a couple or spending the day watching rugby. They had a great set up for the 6 nations (but if sport isn't your thing it didn't dominate either), family friendly, dog friendly and just the kindest guys. We'll be back (if you'll have us...)!More

Small ambient pub in the lovely village of Horsley. Really cosy, well kept and something for everyone (books for children, 6 nations on etc). Sizeable beer garden for when the weather improves. Small snack type menu but it’s what we were expecting as per website....Everything was tasty and cooked well, I had the ham, brie and chilli jam pizza. Really friendly staff. Impeccably clean toilets (odd thing to note but always reassuring to see !). They do pop up nights for different foods, I believe their kitchen is very small so it’s lovely to see them offer some variety etc given constraints.More

What a lovely find this pub was in the village of Horsley. We stayed in the local area to visit the Cotswolds. We visited this pub most nights as it had a good atmosphere, the staff were great and really personable as were the locals....We enjoyed the Jam and bingo night. The food was good too, great pizzas at such a good price in comparison with other pizzerias. If your in the area of Horsley I would definitely recommend visiting this pub, you won’t be disappointed.
