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.

Great Christmas meal at The Beaufort Arms last night. Myself and my partner couldn't fault it. Good food excellently cooked and hot. Service was very good. Wine very enjoyable. A lovely evening all round. Thank you to the team at The Beaufort.

Went with several members of my family for a pre Christmas get together. We had ordered The Christmas Menu in advance and were not disappointed. The food was cooked to perfection and was served piping hot. The beef was cooked beautifully and the roast potatoes...were really lovely and crispy. As always the staff were friendly and welcoming. All in all a great evening out and worth every penny.More

Been here many times before for lunch and have always been pleased with the quality and value for money of the food and draught ales. This lunchtime though we were disappointed because our visit was spoiled by the attitude of the front of house bar...staff. One of us asked if he could taste a beer he was interested in, and was flat out refused. Then we requested that our second drinks order could be taken at our table. Again, refused. When we came to pay we expressed our disappointment to the bar staff and were met with a sullen negative response. Finally, we were accused of not paying for an item of food and were able to point out it was the staff who had made the mistake. Despite the food and drink being excellent, we were left with a very sour taste in the mouth and will find it difficult to return any time soon.More

A family gathering of 21 in the Private Skittle Room. Good food, good ale and a warm welcome. We were also fortunate that a cricket match was on in the field at the rear of the pub.

As a local we tend to eat here every few months or so for special occasions. At short notice my wife and I decided to eat there last Friday. At lunchtime I booked the final table for that evening in the restaurant and was pleasantly...surprised to see ribeye steak as that weeks' special. I have to say that I found it one of the best steaks I have ever eaten, cooked just right medium/well done, really tender and a good size. As steak is not a regular option on the menu I guess it was my lucky day!More

I called in for a quiet pint and asked if I could try one of the beers which I hadn't heard of before. I was politely told told the pub doesn't allow anyone to try the beer before buying it. This is the first time...I have ever been refused a taster in a pub since I was legally allowed to enter one 43 years ago. Having had no choice but to order a pint I now understand why they don't allow tasters. It was truly shocking! Avoid the Beaufort Arms at all costs and carry on to the excellent Fleece at Hillesley.More

As pensioners and like a lot of people this year, money is tight. So we were looking forward to Christmas lunch here as a treat. Unfortunately, this was not the case. There were things omitted from the menu that was advertised, and generally the food...was frugal, and poor. The prawns in the prawn cocktail were barely defrosted, and the pate advertised as coming with toast was served with crackers (the type used for cheese). The beef was tough and over cooked, and the parsnips advertised on the menu did not appear at all. The puddings were better, but coffee and mints turned out to be mints and a biscuit? I don't know if the cook was having a bad day, perhaps another function they were cooking for in another part of the building. For the money paid, and the food served to us, we felt disappointed and let down by somewhere we had been before and had a decent meal. We did not complain at the time because it would have made a bad day worse.More

We arrived at about 6pm on a Friday evening and the bar was already busy. Very friendly customers and staff made our party feel very welcome. We had a large scampi with jacket potato faggots peas and chips and I had the steak and ale...pie. Really lovely home cooked food and very reasonably priced. The landlord stopped by the table for a chat and to ask how the food was. All in all a very good evening lovely food, great atmosphere.More

Well, as an older traditional pub, it's a little bit rough and quaint on the inside, but they have a wide range of excellent brews on tap and we were very pleasantly surprised when their quite affordable "light" lunches arrived, piping hot and perfectly cooked...from the kitchen. delicious local meat balls in sauce and the best fish and chips we had in England. Staff were very friendly and happy to keep refilling our glasses with ice water on a hot day of walking the Cotswold Way. Highly recommended stop for people passing through the quaint town and apparently a very popular spot with the locals.More
