Roast venison and real ale in a fine Cotswolds garden, a lakeside stroll, lavender crème brulée by the fire in winter, barbecues in summer

Here, on the old Roman road (busy now with traffic), rusticity and elegance achieve the perfect balance at this gorgeous 17th-century coaching inn run with aplomb by Dee Ludlow. Stone archways divide the bar, with its flagstone floors, open fires, beamed ceilings and a lively, happy hubbub at lunchtime. Throw in real ales, roast lunches and a welcome for all and you have somewhere very special. This place prides itself on serving really good pub food: prawn cocktail, fish and chips, cottage pie, great puddings. The pub garden is one of the largest and most attractive in the Cotswolds with a two-acre lake, mature trees, and barbecues in summer. Terrific for families and celebrations. Walk from the pub up the river Coln valley and revel in glorious countryside.
