A Beautiful Gloucestershire Country Pub with dining, with seating available in a lower dining area (suitable for wheel-chair users) or a conservatory restaurant. We also have a cosy Bar area and a rear patio, there are tables located at the front of the building which have spectacular views of open countryside. There is plenty of parking to the side of the building, we are located in a very central area for visiting The Cotswolds being only 4 miles from Cheltenham, 8 from Bourton-On-The-Water. We have one king sized accommodation room, with side annexe room with beautiful views and en-suite shower room. We welcome walking parties and specialise in bespoke dining events, please get in touch if
