The food was fantastic, and plenty of it. One of the best pub meals we have ever had. The staff were friendly, polite and very professional. We will definitely be returning for more great food.

Great pub with good real ale and fine pub fare including excellent pies yet not exclusively. They do a good value for money Sunday lunch. Hook Norton pub so expect their ales around £4 per pint

I have visited the Pie Pub many times over the past couple of years and the food, service and atmosphere never disappoints! You get value for money with huge pies, veg and chips/mash which leaves little room for pudding. You would spend £15 on average...More
