A charming, cosy place with excellent food and great staff. The live entertainment was an added bonus and just made the night even better.

We were in town visiting family, and chose to stay here for its charm and setting! The staff were all incredibly friendly and helpful, and the food was excellent! It was quite cold so the added touch of the fireplace made it very comfortable and cosy! Definitely worth a stop in if you find yourself in the area!

This was our first visit and wished we lived nearer to repeat the experience - everyone was very friendly and the food was brilliant - would recommend the chicken strips with the sweet chilli dip. The chef does an amazing job and all 5 of us (ranging from 8 years to 86) thought it was fantastic. The crumble and custard... More

We ate twice in 3 days at this gastropub, once to a background of good live music in the bar. I enjoyed the pheasant, but found the red cabbage with it too sugary. My husband enjoyed the kangeroo burger ( foodmiles!) which tasted like very tasty beef. As puddings were all very calorific, the second time we had starters and... More

On our way to Cotswold farm park, called in here, hoping that they would serve a good coffee. Espresso was fine, hot chocolates great - but do not know what happened to the Cappuccino. Hoping to go back for a meal though, as menu looked great.
