We were seated in a dining room away from the main bar area and had the room to ourselves. The orders were taken and we chose several different starters and main courses from the menu. The starters...

Don't be put off by first impressions. This is a little jewel in the middle of nowhere. I live in Cirencester and am fortunate to have many fine restaurants within a short distance of my front door. I also have a background within the catering industry. The chef at this venue knows how to produce fine, good of fashion food....

I visit here now & then with friends. the staff are always pleasant. Nice old fashioned dining room. The food is always plentiful and the veg is fresh and tasty.

When we arrived the landlord was courteous and welcoming, there was nice log fire blazing in the bar after that everything seemed to go downhill. We were seated in the dining room with our drinks and then waited 25 minutes to be given a menu. We had drunk our first drinks by then and when my husband went for refills...

We have moved from the Midlands to Montgomery just over a year ago and found this pub after recommendations from the locals and it has become our favourite. The new landlord ensures a lovely warm welcome every visit along with all the friendly locals and excellent bar staff and waiters. It has become a home from home throughout the year...
