Visited this pub on recommendation from The Cotswold Distillery. Excellent burger with super accompaniments and a fantastic Prawn and Crayfish platter with a lovely pint of Stratford Gold. Who could ask for more.

We visited for lunch. The service was very good. The food was excellent. Between the four of us we tried a variety of dishes on the menu which were all very good. The atmosphere was good. We will certainly return.

I don't believe they can have caravans now as they have added wooden sleeping pods. I rang tonight and booked my motorhome which was fine but I do seem to remember her saying they do not have caravans anymore.

Motorhomes are welcome although generally pre booking due to limited spaces is required and we charge £15 per night which includes water and electric. Hope this helps

The Norman Knight is a beautiful Cotswold country pub overlooking the green in the picturesque village of Whichford. With its oak beams, flag-stone floor, fireplaces and Cotswold stone interior it is a beautiful setting both inside and out for drinkers and diners alike. Two roaring wood-burning stoves make it a cosy refuge for visitors in the cooler months. The atmosphere is relaxed and the staff warm and welcoming. The creative, seasonal menu is made from locally sourced, fresh ingredients. The lamb and pork comes from the pub's own family farm near Stratford-upon-Avon. The menu is constantly changing. There is also a specials board which is refreshed daily with delicious fare. Booking is recommended, especially for weekend dining. The Norman Knight also has a well-earned reputation as a drinking destination. It offers a great selection of hand-pulled guest ales and ciders alongside popular permanent residents Hooky and its own Stratford-upon-Avon Brewery ales. It features in the CAMRA Good Pub Guide 2016 and is a previous regional pub of the year winner twice over. The pub is also proud to have won the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for four years in a row. Set as it is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the pub attracts many walkers, dogs and larger parties, all of whom are guaranteed a warm and friendly welcome.
