A classy country pub for exploring the pretty Cotswolds. Ancient flags and open fires sing the country theme, food is tasty, dogs are happy

An old favourite of locals and faithfuls from far and wide, this civilised Cotswold pub has been given a gentle facelift by Calcot Health & Leisure – owners of Barnsley House across the road. Expect seasonal food based on the best local produce, good-quality Hook Norton ale and wines from Poulton Hill Estate. There's even a service hatch to the heated patio at the back, so you can sip the sauvignon until the sun goes down. Cotswold stone and ancient flags sing the country theme; past bar and open fires, quiet alcoves provide a snug setting that entices you to stay. If you do, tuck into twice-baked cheddar cheese souffle, followed by fresh fish of the day; sweet tooths will love the sticky toffee pudding. Roman Cirencester and gorgeous Bibury are close by; this is classic Cotswold country.

Guest feedback
"Deep in chocolate box Cotswolds country, a very special pub with foodie satisfying menus, and super comfortable rooms, add to that the fact you can pop over the road to make the most of the facilities at charming Barnsley House and you are set for an amazing stay. Highly recommended. "
