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.

Had a busy day with a lot of driving and were staying locally. Visited the CornerCupboard and had a wonderful meal. The staff were brilliant especially 16 year old 'Alfie 'who is destined for a top catering post.

A lovely friendly pub with great food and excellent staff. My friends and I had a nice lunch here and returned the next night for an excellent dinner! I unwittingly dropped my purse while at the Corner Cupboard and didn't miss it until the next...day. I went back to see if anyone has found it and to my surprise and pleasure, was told that the land lady had taken the purse home and had posted it to me. Now that what I call service!More

I was looking for somewhere to meet up with my children over the festive period. After a short search on Tripadvisor I found the Corner Cupboard. I was the first to arrive and was greeted warmly by the staff. I said a small group of...us would be eating and they moved tables to accommodate us. A fine selection of real ales and a well stocked bar. When my children and partners arrived we settled down to great choices on the menu. We were not rushed to choose and soaked in the atmosphere of the place. We had the Liver and Bacon, a ploughman’s, lasagne, fish and chips and ham egg and chips. All well presented and tasty. No complaints! A couple of us went for the dessert menu and were not disappointed by the sticky toffee pudding, a generous portion of light sponge with loads of custard. A good value meal, good drinks choice, lovely attentive staff makes this a definite go to place for anyone looking to eat or drink whilst in the area. I’m looking forward to returning one day.More

Popped in for an evening drink with my two sons, having been at the Christmas market(?) in the town. The olde worlde exterior with its (currently) Christmas trees drew us in. It's similarly charming inside, with friendly locals and helpful staff. There's a great selection...of beer too, with a nice pint of London Pride, but also more contemporary stuff such as Neck Oil and Peroni. Archetypal English pub; if that's what you like, visit.More

We’ve eaten here before and always had a good experience. With this in mind we wanted to have a lunchtime meal here with friends after a planned walk. When trying out the walk last Monday we called in at The Corner Cupboard for a quick...drink only to be told that it was closed due to a private function (a funeral wake) and that it didn’t usually open on Monday anyway, despite being advertised on their website as being open from 10.00 until midnight Monday to Saturday. With that in mind I called the pub and booked a table for today (Thursday) at 1.15. Apparently 1.00 wasn’t available. We turned up ten minutes early and ordered drinks from the bar. When the polite waitress came to see us she said that there would be quite a wait for food because three tables were still to order. Unfortunately they’d had three or four ‘walk-ins’ but they would be able to feed us. I’m at a loss to see the point of booking tables if they are going to give preference to customers who just walk in off the street. Your contact number is requested on booking I assume so they can contact you if you are late or don’t turn up. Anyway we drank up, left and sadly doubt we shall ever return. On the positive side the beer was well kept and very tasty.More

We popped in for lunch, excellent value for 2 courses. Food was very good, good sized portions. Nice atmosphere, the resturant staff were friendly & chatty. Would highly recommend popping in for a pint and some grub, worth a visit ;-)

Tasty stew but portion the size of a starter so we had to have a snack when we got home. Pleasant decor and interesting cricket memorabilia.

My wife and I were hiking a section of the Cotswold Way with two other couples from our hometown of Cincinnati OH, and we were looking for a place to eat dinner in Winchcombe on Sunday September 10. A lot places were completely closed or...closed early. I contacted Jason Hobbs at The Corner Cupboard, and he was happy to accommodate us, even though it meant keeping the kitchen open a bit longer than it would have been without us. We arrived straight from the trail (and looking like it) and had a wonderful early dinner. I had the stew, which was delicious, and the others’ food was equally good. We especially liked our servers, Ella and Rachel. Despite the fact that we were the last customers in the restaurant and were keeping them past the time when they would normally go home, they couldn’t have been more friendly or give us better service. They made a terrific meal an especially nice memory. We had a first-rate experience, and I recommend The Corner Cupboard without hesitation.More

It would be best to enter via the parking lot at the rear of the restaurant. Shouldn't have any issues.
