Food was reasonably priced for the light bites we ordered after walking around cleeve hill. Was cheap and cheerful pub grub, we will eat in the restaurant next time we are down before we make our final assessment!

didn't sleep there, just came for brunch. Some of us had breakfast and it looked good and was cheap, I had the lamb shank roast and it had all the trimmings. Was very good. I would recommend the beef rib roast too.

Stayed here for 1 night while attending a local wedding, overall we enjoyed the stay. The staff seemed very busy but Sophie who seemed to be doing the lions share of the work, serving in the bar, covering reception and answering the phone was friendly and professional. The rooms are dated but clean enough, the bed was fine but the...

Thank-you for your feedback, we do not have nor have ever had (to my knowledge) a hoteliers licence here, it is for this reason we can not serve ant alcohol to resident or not after time. I am looking into getting these licences however there are no guarantees. Thanks again Simon

We had lunch here, and whilst the children's meals went down okay, my jacket potato was rubbish - undercooked, and missing the coleslaw advertised. I'd also asked for no dressing on my salad, which didn't get passed onto the chef. Expected better.

Sorry to hear your Lamb Rump was not up to our normal standards, this is a very popular meal, unfortunately every so often - as with any cut of meat - we do get a poor one, our vegetables on this dish are fresh. Sorry again Simon

Took advantage of a winter deal from Old English Inns, had THE BEST ROOM in the hotel as they were quiet in January, with views over Cleeve Hill. Large room and decent sized bathroom, excellent menu and service in the restaurant, good beer and comfy places to sit - well impressed! Will definitely go back when in the Cotswolds.
