Visited here with friends for a quick lunch bite to eat. The restaurant was spacious, service was prompt with a smile. We had soup of the day which was delicious and of course the Cotswolds cream tea . Well worth a visit

Bourton on Bank Holiday Monday ... and the town was packed to capacity. Perhaps the fact that this was the only restaurant where tables were available should have served as a warning... but we were hungry and in need of a cooling drink and so...More
