This is a great pub, well kept beers & ciders, and some fabulous home made cooked dishes, all helps to visit a Cotswold village pub. Rumour has it, that it was once visited by John Shakespeare and his lad, purchasing wool from local farmers.

Really nice pub but small. Nice for a drink after walking. Didn't eat here but menu looks nice. Hard to find as on side street but worth a look.

This country pub has recently changed hands and should remove the previous reviews. The pub has been given a make over. They do not serve traditional pub food but a selection of English tapas. They have never offered accommodation so this may be a mix...More
