Good Pub Guide Recommended

Handsome Georgian inn with a fine range of drinks, excellent food, friendly staff and lovely views from seats outside; smart bedrooms
This honey-coloured stone inn is a special place to stay, with individually styled, well equipped bedrooms and good breakfasts. The pubby bar is light and airy with a nice mix of wooden chairs and tables on bare boards, stripped-stone walls, a good log fire, Goffs Jouster and guests such as Stroud Budding and Wickwar BOB on handpump, 20 wines by the glass and farm cider. There are plenty of original features throughout; board games. The large back garden has lots of seats under parasols and fine views over the surrounding countryside. It's best to get here early to be sure of a space in the smallish car park. Batsford Arboretum is not far away.

Good Pub Guide Food

Cooked by the landlord, the inventive food includes sandwiches, deep-fried salt and pepper squid with vietnamese salad, goats cheese and thyme twice-baked soufflé, home-cured rare-breed ham and egg, smoked haddock, salmon and leek fishcakes with mustard cream sauce, butternut squash and mascarpone risotto with sage butter, rare-breed burger with horseradish mayonnaise, and puddings such as banana and hazelnut eton mess and damson jam bakewell tart.

Bar food times: 12 - 2, 7 - 9.30

excellent lunch. innovative food. friendly service. very pleasant sitting in the garden. and not too expensive.

Stopped for lunch whilst walking in the area. What a treat!! Outstanding welcome,service,presentation and quality of food. We even had sunshine! What a gem of a place, will definitely be visiting again soon. Thank-you, mads

Excellent food here and very helpful and friendly. We did not immediately realise that the menu is on the wall and you have to order from the bar. Highly recommended.

Now run by the Greenstock boys (Tom and Will) we were eager to check it out as we were staying at their parents' previous venture, the Howard Arms over in Ilmington and had heard good reports. We called on a Tuesday for an early evening drink around 5.45 pm on our way back from Chipping Campden, only to find it closed. We had diverted so were not well pleased. The car park too, was empty. Need to review their opening times please.

Disappointed with this pub - as we never got to try it. One evening we arrived early just as the owner closed the pub to go fishing. When we asked why, we were told "Because it's mine and I feel it." A few days later we passed it at 10pm on a Thursday and it was closed.

This is a fantastic pub. Tom the owner when around is always inviting and the whole place has a great warm atmosphere. Highly recommended.
