“A brilliant weekend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2010

We had a brilliant weekend. This is an exceptional place to stay and to eat, evidence the packed restaurant, only a few weeks after opening. The rooms are as good as a 5 star hotel and show the obvious care and attention that the owners have put into this new venture. The food is as good, , as we have eaten anywhere in the UK, and sensibly priced. There is a light menu for snacks which are delicious.

For those who want an owner run high class country inn with personal service and sensible prices, then you will not go wrong by eating or staying at the Seagrave Arms. For those who want a buffet breakfast, may I respectfully refer them to the local Holiday Inn!!!

“Presentation over service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2010

The Seagrave Arms is ideally situated for walking/touring the N Cotswold area. My friend and I stayed here for 3 nights. It has been recently refurbished very tastefully and to a high standard - we could not fault the rooms. We did not eat in the restaurant as we found the menu a little too pretentious for our personal taste. The owners need to seriously address their breakfast service. There was no buffet or menu and it was difficult to assertain was was actually available. Cereal and jam (no choice of other preserves) was served in kilner jars which were a pain to open. Presentation seemed to prevail over common sense. We repeatedly had to ask for items like butter, tea to be brought. Requesting some fruit we were served a rather odd compote which would not be to everyone taste.We found the breakfast service irritating, unnecessary and rather an embarrassment. Considering that it was £90 per night per room we expected better.

“Poor food and no atmosphere”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2010

Approaching this refurbished pub it looked like a smart country dining outfit - smart gravel drive and path with tasteful outside furniture and tables. Inside things started to go downhill. The tableware was high class - Robert Welch cutlery, slate mats - but the furniture was definitely pub, a mishmash of tables and chairs, some more comfortable than others and the occasional wobbly leg.

Dining was divided between small rooms = no atmosphere and and inabiiity to converse without your neighbours overhearing every word - and, worse, vice versa.

Soused mackrel tasted of vinegar, one of the few things that tasted of anything. Soused mackrel by the way didn't work - the flesh was soggy and soft. Chips were dire, cold and served in a twee individual chip basket.
