Quirky, fun, unique. All ages will enjoy this immaculate Cotswold beauty with a great sun-trap terrace and 6 handsome bedrooms

The setting is gorgeous and a cool young team run this rather posh pub, headed up by owner Dom. Good food is sourced locally and freshly cooked in a modern, very British, way including pub classics and sandwiches. Drinks are taken seriously: an ever-growing choice of gins (over 140!), a beer menu with craft and world beers, ales and ciders from smaller independent breweries, and an excellent choice of whiskeys and wines (over 30 by the glass). Dining areas are split level, a top-notch modern take on traditional, all new slate flag floors and tartan cushions, Windsor chairs and white-painted beams. Outside: a large terraced area which gets the sun all day, an outdoor bar, petanque, comfortable places to sit – and if you're chilly in the evening? A double-sided wood-burner and woolly blankets take care of that.

Guest feedback
"A great stay! We loved the selection of gins and enjoyed sampling a few new ones. The hospitality and food (especially the venison) was excellent. We'll be back!"
