Stayed at The Ebrington Arms for a couple of nights. This is a lovely pub situated in a peaceful and delightful village a short drive from Chipping Camden. We stayed in room 4 and this was a lovely room, beautifully decorated with an excellent large bathroom with a separate shower cubicle. One slight criticism is there was a lack of drawers and just a rail with knobs for hanging clothes. The bedside tables were small so not really any use for clothes,whereas the room was plenty big enough for a wardrobe and bigger drawers. Our room seemed to be below some water tanks which did make some noise throughout the night but when mentioned on checking out we were told this would be looked at. There are always going to be some strange sounds and noises when you're not in familiar surroundings so this wasn't too much of a problem.
However, there are plenty of positives. The staff were brilliant, really helpful and polite. Two who stood out were Sara and Jason. We had a slight issue on our first night which was sorted out by another member of staff who unfortunately we didn't get her name but she went over and above her duties to help us.
The food is wonderful. We can't believe the comments about small portions. This is a pub serving restaurant food at a very high standard. The chicken was superb, so succulent and the fish and chips looked so good we had to sample on our second evening and we weren't disappointed. Breakfast was wonderful, great selection and beautifully presented. There were six real ales on offer and you can take advantage of ordering a 'flight' of drinks which allowed you to have 3 1/3 pints of 3 different ales.
The pub is very popular with locals and it is advisable to book a table for the evening. We would return as this is a good base for exploring the quieter side of the Cotswolds.
