Handsome Georgian inn with a fine range of drinks, excellent food, friendly staff and lovely views from seats outside; smart bedrooms
Our readers love this honey-coloured stone inn. It's run by two brothers and is a top class all-rounder with an excellent bustling atmosphere and the friendliest of welcomes. 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 like Butcombe Rare Breed and Purity Mad Goose on handpump, Cotswold Brewing Company Lager, local cider, 20 wines by the glass and home-made lemonade and elderflower cordial. There are plenty of original features throughout. The large back garden has lots of seats under smart umbrellas 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. This is a special place to stay in individually styled bedrooms. Batsford Arboretum is not far away.

Good Pub Guide Food

Stylishly presented, the interesting modern food includes cornish fish soup with rouille and gruyère, home-cured spiced salt beef with beetroot and horseradish relish and home-made foccacia, spinach, roast squash, lentil and mascarpone filo parcels with curried sauce, grilled salmon fillet with roasted beetroots and horseradish cream, pigeon breasts on creamed celeriac purée with chorizo and thyme jus, rare-breed pork chop with apple compote and green peppercorn sauce and puddings such as vanilla gingernut cheesecake with spiced clementines and banana and pecan sponge pudding with butterscotch sauce.

Bar food times: 12 - 2 (2.30 Sun) , 7 - 9.30; not Sun evening

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.
