Nice pub, traditional and friendly with good wine list and Hook Norton real ale. Dog-friendly too. However, not a good option for eating if you are vegetarian or vegan. Not one main course suitable on the day we visited.

Stopped here for lunch after a walk with friends. The staff are very helpful and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. The food we had was good, (ham,egg and chips, bacon and Brie baguette, croque madam) quality, portions and value. Will definitely be visiting again.

Food fantastic! Hook Norton cask beers great! Gosh, everything I've eaten there I've loved! And the staff are wonderfully accommodating! Seriously considering stopping by daily while we're staying in Blockley.
