Very old, quaint, friendly, seems to be the hub of the village and most welcoming. Food is delicious with gigantic portions which should sate the appetite of any walker of the Cotswold Way who has just done 16 miles. Everyone is told the 'alternative routes'...More

A different experience. Could be a shock to the millennials. A friendly, exceedingly welcoming establishment, that is light years behind Bath with buckets of charm and exceedingly good food!
