Popped in on a Friday night for a meal for two. Wasn't busy at first but we were served quickly and the lady serving us was very friendly. Had starters and mains and both were extreamly tasty with good presentation. Reasonably priced compared to other restaurants in the area. This is the third time we have been and every time... More

Visit with a party for 'Stag event ' Comfortable accommodation in the courtyard rooms. Well appointed warm and clean. Evening meal was delivered to our party very quickly despite an assortment of orders. Good beers and wine list but Cotswold prices which can be a bit of a shock to 'northern boys' Breakfast was good but our hostess had to... More

We arrived without reservation and were surprised to find the place almost empty on a Friday evening. That was fortunate for us, because it meant service was exemplary and fast. We liked the menu and both found it difficult to choose from so many great-sounding dishes. The food was clearly prepared and presented with attention to detail. Good portion size... More

We had another lovely lunch here! I had the fixed price 2 course lunch- mozzarella salad starter (which was delicious) followed by pork with lots of lovely veg. (The red cabbage here is gorgeous.) My husband had chicken liver parfait and the old spot sausages which he loved. He just about managed to fit in a sticky toffee pudding.

Gorgeous food ( highly recommend the lamb), fab service. Would definitely recommend to people in future. : ) service was prompt from the start. Great ambiance all round. You are offered veg with courses and bread with starter free of charge ! Plenty of seats and a wide selection of drinks available.

On holiday in the area & discovered this place through trip advisor. Turned up at 12 on a Sunday without a booking - got the impression that it's wise to book and gets busy, but managed to get a table. There were two choices of Sunday roast available as well as specials and the usual menu with the exception of... More

Stopped here for lunch yesterday en route home. Good tempting menu but we only wanted a light lunch. Good choice of sandwiches / ciabatta. BLT was one of the best ever and Cheese was like a mini ploughmans in the most delicious ciabatta. Welcome was friendly and helpful. Traditional pleasant decor but recently done I would think. Will definitely call... More

We lunched here with friends after a 10km walk in the nearby countryside. The host is very friendly and the menu quite varied, if perhaps a little 'retro' - my swordfish came with various fruits, but was very tasty. A few good local ales on offer. All round, a very pleasant experience
