Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is what the name of this pub is the Bees Knees. Jules and Neil are your hosts and make you feel very very welcome. Great range of beers and tastefully decorated.

Fabulous food. The steak was fabulous and the ribs are amazing. Next time will definitely try the softshell crab burger. Neil knows his smoker inside out and Steph is a naturally gifted front of house host. Definite recommendation. Fabulous.

Food was amazing, flavours were incredible. Meat was cooked on their in-house smoker. Our host Stephan was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Definitely be back again.

My partner found this place whilst looking for somewhere to go for dinner while visiting Cirencester. It was a 15 minute walk from our hotel opposite the church. We love smokehouse food and have been to a few similar restaurants. The food was good, I...had the smoked platter. The brisket didn't have much flavour and was cold but everything else was really nice. There was a lot of food! i had asked if it was better to share and was told it was individual but I definitely could have shared it and then got a couple of sides. My husband has the brisket burger which he said was good. The only let down really was the service. overall it was nice but not the best smokehouse place we've been to.More

Booked over the phone very easily, the atmosphere is lovely inside, very homely and warm, the food is absolutely to die for, even the fries were top notch, I had a brisket burger and the mac and cheese, other half got the platter which he...couldn't finish (unusual for him), meat was tender and flavoursome. Service was friendly and quick! The only thing I would highlight is that we booked a table for 6 and were told when we got there that the kitchen didn't open until 630, this was fine as we had a drink and a chat but was an unexpected delay.More

Fabulous smoked food and fantastic welcoming staff. Having had BBQ in Texas earlier in the year we were craving some smoked meat. We had the platter to share for lunch which was divine- amazing tender brisket, pulled pork, chicken wings, pork rib. Great dips accompanied....Highly recommend!More

Really tasty food and generous portions. Not sure how we managed to clear the lot but we did! I had the most meaty ribs ever and all of the other dishes looked great too. Well worth checking this place out.
