The Experience

An old favourite of locals and faithfuls from far and wide, this civilised Cotswold bolthole has been given a gentle facelift by Calcot Health & Leisure – owners of Barnsley House, the country-house hotel 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 savour 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. Classy, spruced-up bedrooms are equally cosy and inviting, with soothing colours, stylish fabrics, plasma screens and iPod docks. Two stunning four-poster rooms have big bathrooms with claw-foot baths, walk-in showers, posh toiletries. Roman Cirencester and gorgeous Bibury are close by; this is classic Cotswold country.

It’s a well-run pub with rooms in an idyllic village. The menu is fairly simple and there’s not a wide choice, with typical pub dishes such as burgers and steak. The food was tasty and cooked well. Service was friendly and efficient. We would go back.
