Called in without booking 2.30pm on a Sunday afternoon fully expecting to be told 'go away'. However, a very warm greeting, table and happy to take order for food. The food was great with prompt service. The pub itself is a south facing sun trap with seating outside on a quiet lane with views of the new born lambs. Inside... More

We visited for lunch with 2 friends after visiting Gloucester Cathedral, so were running a little later than anticipated. This was not a problem as our welcome was very warm and cheery! The food was very good, particularly the chips with the ham and eggs, according to the gentlemen in the party. The staff were very friendly and we thoroughly... More

On our way to a weekend in the Cotswolds we stopped for lunch. One of our number is in a wheelchair but disabled access is good and the staff very helpful. There is also a full disabled toilet which we found extremely rare in these parts. The waitress was fun and bubbly and the food was also interesting and tasty.... More
