A most attractive location, - a small village featuring a cracking Pub with an excellent menu. We were a party of 17, meeting up here for the first time, and we were not disappointed. Each and every course was sampled, and not a complaint to be heard. Another first!

I booked late for Easter lunch and had a party of 6 but nevertheless the landlord found us space. He was kind and helpful, on arrival we found a beautiful country pub with excellent food, beer, wine and service. There is a good mix of people eating and locals at the bar and the atmosphere is really good. The staff... More

This is a real gem of a place. Food is always excellent and the welcome warm and friendly. The most fantastic chips. Chef made a gluten free pudding for me with zero notice. Can't recommend it enough. Sandie the lovely blonde lady is fantastic.

A country pub to die for with soft Cotswold stone & wooden beams. Delicious meal served by very friendly & helpful staff. Good value for money. Ideal pretty location at northern edge of the Cotswolds with the National Trust Upton House & the Edgehill escarpment nearby.

Visited again as in area. Busy night but we were made welcome and found a table. Food was some of the best we have ever had. Service friendly and efficient. Toilets clean. Parking very limited in village. Would have walked to it if time permitted as better option it seems.

Typified the classic country pub; fires, wooden beams, cozy. A friendly welcome on a Friday evening from the landlord. Squeezed us in to be followed by an excellent meal. More interesting the basic pub grub you sometimes get. My wife enjoyed the special, venison shin and I had home baked ham. Fair price, definitely recommend

A beautiful pub in the lovely village of Edgehill. A very friendly welcome and one of the best sandwiches I've ever eaten. Proper bread with proper ham, great salad, chips and a wide choice of mustards. Highly recommended.

My daughter and I called in for lunch mid-week. We were running late so weren't sure if we'd still be able to order food. The welcome was immediate and warm - ordering food no problem at all - and our lunch was delicious. We will certainly return when we have more time, but we would book as I think were... More

We are traditional country pub that is said to date back to 1098, little has changed over the years. We have open fires, really good food and some great real ale. We are free of tie which means we can source our beer from whomever we choose.

We do hope you come and visit us soon.
