Had a yummy lunch , great atmosphere and very friendly staff, could not fault it. Dogs welcome due to the layout of the tables you don't feel crowded. there is a very intimate feeling to the place even at lunchtime.

An absolutely hidden gem, a quaint county pub. Excellent food and service and quite good value. Will most certainly be returning

A great little find, dogs were very welcome- was busy for a Tuesday lunch time. Had a beautiful fresh lunch, friendly and attentive staff. We booked that day for an evening meal when my Mother in law visits, Can't wait to go back.

We visited here to celebrate my mother in laws' 80th Birthday. She is quite hard of hearing so we asked for a quiet table. The staff were superb and so helpful. The food was excellent and they made a great evening for our celebration.

Back in 2014, I came across this business - fast forward to 2017 and (I'm afraid) no improvements to the building appearance has taken place, it seems the business was temporarily closed while exchanging ownership...or at least that's the current state of the hotel segment....More

A traditional Cotswold Inn with a rich history. Perfect for a Sunday roast or simply a pint of local beer.Ivy droops over the Cotswold stone of this beautiful, sixteenth century coaching inn near Cirencester. Expect proper English, seasonal pub food using the best ingredients we can find.Our lunch and supper menus are deeply rooted in everyone's favourite British classics. Tuck into Pork Belly Confit or Roasted Guinea Fowl Breast or try one of our legendary Sunday roasts which are worth the trip just for the roast alone.
