Stayed for 1 night at this lovely 17th Century pub. Very nice setting close to Burford. Cannot fault the bedroom we were given apart from very flat pillows. Meal in the bar that evening was good but overpriced. Lady who served us was pleasant .In the morning we went for breakfast and there were 2 other couples there. The 2...

Great lunch in a traditional stone Inn by the river Windrush. A real pub bar forms a traditional "local" with loads of old-world warmth and charm. Outdoor patio seating must be a wonderful experience in the summer! Good food, great surroundings, a must-visit in the Cotswolds.

Called in for an impromptu lunch, service was fine but we felt the food was very expensive for what we received - £13 for a fairly small stilton ploughmans with sliced bread. The food was fresh, nicely presented and tasty but expected more for that price. The weather was nice and we ate outside but our lunch was a little...

Stayed overnight on a Friday evening arriving after a long drive from the Lake District. The location is fantastic in a secluded valley with outside bar areas and seating adjacent to the river. Our room was in an annex area behind the main part of the pub and was quiet, clean, comfortable and had a nice en suite. Dinner in...

Stayed for a special occasion, but wasn't special at all. Such a shame as we were so looking forward to it and were really disappointed. We were greeted in the car park by Chester the dog who was by far the friendliest. The location is fantastic but the public areas are tired and need updating and de cluttering. There was...

Fantastic river location, so this was a great choice on a sunny day, sitting outside next to the river. However, the service was poor - they lost our booking, many of the food choices had run out, average pub grub, expensive, chef having a very public melt down with waiting staff.

Stayed here early April - really pleased with the location, met some lovely other guests. Felt we were not a priority, more that the locals were. Food good, but pricey for what you got. Did not pay full price for the rooms and would not either. Am surprised they can get away with the prices. Rooms are lovely but a...

The Fox is in a lovely position by the river. We were greeted politely on arrival and booked for dinner and shown to our room which was above the pub. The room was pleasant and overlooked the country lane. However, on closer inspection there were a lot of cobwebs on the ceilings and in the window ledges. We also had...

This pub is in a lovely part of the country. We stopped here for lunch. The food was good but prices seemed a bit expensive. Service was quick and friendly. Although we were quite late arriving for lunch, the pub soon got quite busy, so it is obviously well liked.
