good wide ranging menu with all the usual suspects, cooked fresh and how you like it in this out of the way celeb gastro pub, owned it is rumoured by the Chelsea Chairman and Kate Moss by others. Nice warm fires in the winter, great outdoors space in the Summer, go, don't miss

We went as a party of 13 and while initially the guy behind the bar seemed like he'd rather be anywhere but there serving us things did get better. We were fortunate to have been looked after at the table by an extremely nice waitress who made us feel really welcome. It's a shame to say that I find good... More

The Wainwright's Arms is a traditional pub with an incredibly welcoming feel. It is a little off the beaten track; side-winding the inclining streets to find it was interesting! The views are simply magnificent and it boasts incredible vistas of the surrounding countryside. The bar staff are incredibly friendly and the bar has a super range of beers, ales and... More

Waves of affluence spread out like ripples in a pond from Bath into the Cotswolds and this lovely pub in a village dominated by the buildings of a boarding school has been touched by that effect and then some. The young staff are lovely , a bottle of Chilean Pinot was excellent and the pork chop is a beautifully cooked... More

Thank you for your kind and in formative review. Regarding the service charge we took the view with the staff when we opened 10 years ago that 10% on the food was fair for both customers and staff but a 12.5% on drink and food was unfair on our customers . More

We took our son here for his birthday and thought based on the prices that the food would be top notch. However when our Sunday roasts came the Yorkshire puddings were overcooked and dry, the lamb was so fatty that I couldn't eat it and the roast potatoes were unpleasant. We mentioned this to our waitress and she murmured something... More

Yes you are quite right in your comments. We had a poor lunch on sunday and we are very sorry for that. We realized that it was not up to our usual standards and having discussed it with our Darren our Head Chef, he is taking remedial action regarding the lamb, roast potatoes and the yorkshie pudding. This is a... More

We noticed this as we were passing through. We came back to it for lunch and are so happy we did! Fantastic food. It has much more artisan local craft than most of the restaurants we have visited with the laid back atmosphere of a pub (which was great to visit with kids). There are board games in the corner...

This pub is tucked away in a secluded village. Surrounded by beautiful countryside. In the summer it's great to sit and relax in the garden with a cold local cider. The food is reasonable my wife had asparagus with ham egg starter while I had a potted crab. Pretty good. I decided to have the steak special. Although a fine... More
