Friendly country pub with large garden. The food at lunchtime was good. The major downside for me is that dogs are allowed everywhere. They should never be anywhere tht food is served.

We stayed here for two nights on a weekend away from London and loved it. The hotel is in a small historic village and has true Cotswolds character. The welcome was friendly and informative, the rooms are well appointed and well finished with modern facilities, although a bit small for a few nights with minimal luggage they were ideal. The...

The vibe in this pub is lovely, its warm and welcoming! Alfie the dog has a lovely temperament and you can feed him treats from the bar. My partner and I visit regularly on a friday evening for drinks and snacks- we can definitely recommend the cheese board to share, very reasonably priced at less than £10 and the cheeses... More

We joined friends just before Christmas for a pre-celebratory dinner. The Maytime is situated in the heart of a true Cotswold village. The food was delicious, cooked to order - so we had to wait a little while but the atmosphere is relaxed and you quickly adapt to your environment. Great quality food at reasonable prices. The only downside on... More

We met friends for Sunday Lunch here having had a lovely time the first visit. Not impressed this time, hard roast potatoes, the Yorkshire Puddings were so crunchy they had obviously been reheated several times. Most of the waiting staff were very nice but the scruffy young man in jeans had an attitude problem. Think they need a more experienced... More

4 of us ate here in December. Between us we had whiteboard and foccacia as starters. Main courses were steak and ale pie and 3 fish and chips. Then fish was excellent and chips were moist inside and crispy out. We were all too full to have dessert but did have coffee. Excellent food and good value. Would definitely recommend... More

Dom and Andy (plus the lovely Alfie) always make us feel welcome and have a great range of interesting drinks and excellent ever changing food on offer. I love the sense of fun in the menu and the drinks list. This is good honest cooking to a high standard without all the poncey bits others think are needed.

This is a lovely looking building set in a beautiful part of the Cotswolds. It has a good size car park and lots of outdoor seating with a view in nice weather. The inside of the pub is really well laid out and interesting with the tables not set too close together. We stayed for just a sandwich lunch though... More

We are new to the area and live nearby so were delighted when we stumbled across this pub. We had been for a walk and popped in on a heaving Sunday and were only able to have some drinks and bar nibbles - not a problem, it was pleasing to see it so full. We had a lovely afternoon with... More

This restaurant is situated a short distance off the A40 near to a roundabout to the east of Burford. It has a very pleasant external area for use in warmer weather. We visited for lunch on a Saturday. After a slightly formal welcome, we were shown to a table in one of the pleasant small dining areas. The menu had... More

Dominic and Alfie (the dog) would like to welcome you to The Maytime Inn. Nestling in the heart of the beautiful, peaceful and historic Cotswold village of Asthall. Under new ownership and newly refurbished everything is designed to make your visit more enjoyable, from the new herb garden to our relaxing bar and restaurant areas. Our young and passionate team will do their best to ensure a visit to the Inn is a rewarding and enjoyable experience. To book accommodation with us online, please click HERE Only less than half a mile off the A40 or B4047 you will find yourself in another world. The river Windrush meanders gently through the beautiful countryside a stones throw from The Maytime Inn which dates back to the 17th Century and in times gone by was a coaching inn with its own Smithy. The village of Asthall features on many walking routes and what better place than The Maytime to stop, rest and refresh yourself. Your dog may also appreciate a drink! The Maytime Inn is independent and fiercely so, because of this we can offer you a range of excellently conditioned, regularly changing local ales, ciders and a wide selection of fine wines by the glass. Our Award Winning Chef and his team will set out to delight whether you choose from the a la carte menu, pub classics or even a sandwich. We only use the finest fresh local produce in each dish so you can be ensured of a quality meal, be it a candle lit dinner or a sandwich at lunch. The village of Asthall is the original home of the famous Mitford sisters and also has a stunning old church set next to the Manor house which regularly hosts popular public events. The Maytime Inn is within easy striking distance of Burford, Oxford and Cheltenham as well as many other local attractions. If you need more time to explore the area, or simply want a few nights away in quiet, beautiful rural surroundings, we have six en-suite guest bedrooms so we can ensure a truly personal service. We will also be happy to discuss with you club meetings/dinners and private functions. We look forward to greeting you at The Maytime Inn and we promise to do our best to ensure you leave with a belly full of fine food, excellent wine and with happy memories.
