Excellent meal here with friends on Nov 19th . It was very busy but the young staff were first class, managing everything efficiently and professionally. The various "pub classics" we chose were all very good and brilliant value for money using their special offer.

Loved it here, pity I will probably never be here again! We were a group attending a wedding in Dumbleton up the road and night 1 was held here. The staff could not have been friendlier or more efficient. Food was delicious and there's a really lovely homely feel to the place What more can I say! Highly recommended

Waitress delivered our main course and we barely saw her again- had to ask 3 times for mustard and had almost eaten my steak by the time it finally arrived, £17.00 for a steak but not great, I have had better for half the price. the next sighting of waitress was when she was stood chatting at the bar and...

We were staying at the Winchcombe club site and had visited 2 years previously. Decided to have lunch on our walk from the site which takes about 20 minutes. We were amazed at the refurbishment- wouldn't have recognised the place. Had a really warm welcome and advice on the wines. Decided to go for the lunchtime special and both meals... More

My wife and I enjoyed a superb lunch of lambs liver, with draft Wolf Rock beer here on a Monday lunchtime. We took advantage of the lunchtime menu deal, great value and unusual for an independent pub serving such high quality food. The pub has a lovely warm atmosphere, and is in a great location for local walks. We will... More

We were staying at the nearby campsite and were recommended this pub. There was a friendly welcome and we were shown to a choice of tables. The staff were friendly and helpful. We chose from a large menu choice and were served promptly. The food was delicious and plentiful. We will definitely go back there again if we are in... More

Couldn't help thinking there were not enough staff on duty as all staff were always non stop busy. offer of free deserts to us were not mentioned to the person making out the bills, but by this time with the long wait for main meal, I'd given up the will to mention it. And the deserts were good.

The pub was packed and the staff rushed off their feet but they were all so pleasant and helpful.I thought that they must have received training but they said not.. They were all young girls and no matter what pressure they were under all had a smile and were always polite .They deserve to be congratulated

I used to live in the village and loved the country feel the pub had. However even though the refurbishment is lovely and modern it has definitely lost its country feel. (Personal opinion) however can. It fault the food or service. Food was excellent, and it always has been.
