Superb lunch. Great menu choices and freshly cooked food. Great flavours. Very good value for money. Choice of puddings was small but excellent however we chose local ice cream as not much room left for anything heavier.

The only negative thing to say about this pub is that it is so popular on Sunday lunchtime that it is difficult to park because it is in a very narrow lane and the car park is likely to be full. However it is more...More

This was a welcome pit-stop after being dragged around the Cotswolds for two hours by my fiancé. Great lunch choice and very comfortable. Quiet when we got there but very busy after an hour or so.

If you are looking for a Cotswold pub that serves an excellent Sunday roast, with a veggie option as well as excellent roast beef, try this pub in the village of Sheepscombe just outside Painswick.
