A beautiful B&B, conveniently located on the outskirts of the Cotswolds. Great value for money offering comfortable rooms, free wifi, great breakfast and a good choice of food for lunch or dinner. Staff are very friendly and helpful feeling you welcomed and well looked after. Family rooms are huge, but could use some tlc and modernisation.

After some creative pleading from us they did offer a table in the breakfast room which we accepted with gratitude but a little trepidation. But we needn't have worried, on...

This venue was selected by my son to celebrate his 36th birthday and he booked it for 13.00. We arrived on time and our table was ready and set up for us. We all chose starters with two people sharing the Camembert to share. As far as I am aware all found them satisfactory. My wood pigeon consisted of three...

This is a beautiful iconic cotswold stone building and traditional hostelry. It was updated some years ago and has never quite regained its ambiance. It feels flat. The food is ok and probably slightly above your average pub fare. The service is pleasant and they are clearly trying to make a mark but currently it does not compare well with...

Enjoyed a family lunch here. Friendly staff. Nice menu. Burgers were very good. Also had fish & chips, fish slightly overdone, would have liked it to be a bit more soft & golden. Would go again as had a good menu Seating nicely laid out, plenty of space between tables

We stayed the night in the family room which was a large sized room with a double and a single bed and was very comfortable. There was also a sofa bed and a food up bed in the wardrobe if needed. We had dinner on Saturday night in the pub which was delicious, fairly priced and good portion sizes. The...

De!ightful bar, super room, great pint and lovely food. Very pleasant staff, who were most accommodating and helpful, and the room was most comfortable. The location is very good; on the eastern fringe of the Cotswolds, just west of Oxford. There are only two minor crticisms, and both are in the spIrit of trying to be constructive: the bathroom could...
