Booked late for Saturday lunch at 12 noon. Greeted by friendly staff and a roaring real fire in the bar on a chilly early autumn day. I'm a Lucky Onion regular mainly the Cheltenham Branches! Been a couple of times here before. Lovely old world...More

The food was really good (in paticular the clams and desserts) however the service ruined the entire experience. We were a group of 8 and all of the sides didn't show up. Our chicken avocado salad arrived without chicken and then they brought it chopped...More

A traditional Cotswold Inn with a rich history. Perfect for a Sunday roast or simply a pint of local beer.Ivy droops over the Cotswold stone of this beautiful, sixteenth century coaching inn near Cirencester. Expect proper English, seasonal pub food using the best ingredients we can find.Our lunch and supper menus are deeply rooted in everyone's favourite British classics. Tuck into Pork Belly Confit or Roasted Guinea Fowl Breast or try one of our legendary Sunday roasts which are worth the trip just for the roast alone.
