A beautiful place to visit in a great village. Superb environment, good menu and a great host created a lovely evening but it is pricey! (Only a special evening out for some of us on pensions...) We went with there with friends who chose the restaurant beforehand. However, everyone cleared their plates and asked for the dessert menu from our... More

Great little place, good food, specials on offer and good choices in the bar for different tipples. Gin and vodka menu looked fun!

One of our favourites in the Cotswolds, over the years we've paid many a visit and have also stayed in the wonderfully cosy family rooms behind the pub. Good food, very cosy, fabulously friendly staff and doggy friendly too. Always a warm welcome, worth a visit and to pop into Meggie's too!

We had dinner with friends on Saturday evening and it was superb. The food choice was very good, particularly the specials! Three of us had the calamari special to start - perfectly cooked - and my husband had the haddock Mac and cheese - also very good. We had a selection of mains sole, pork belly, and steak and kidney... More

The Cotswolds hills are famously beautiful, and the honey-coloured stone buidings a delight, perhaps especially in Painswick. So The Falcon Inn is splendidly located. Inside, the decor is hard to fault but not inspired, and the tables are, well, just tables. Service was initially "unrushed", so it was 40-45 minutes before our first (main) course arrived. However, they were delicious... More

We loved this pub - it was cosy, food was very lovely and staff was attentive. Good wine list to go with a delicious cheese board!

Had a meal here while staying at the local Court House hotel and I have to say that the service, food and atmosphere knocked spots off of our hotel. A beautifully decorated restaurant with friendly and helpful staff. We had a two course meal and the food was excellent. I would highly recommend and will be definitely be visiting again... More

This is a lovely village/ town pub where the staff are very friendly. I went there on two nights, and the food on both nights, was excellent.

Comfortable pub with a modern menu and daily specials. Service was good considering how busy the place was. Free WiFi very good. Car park is rather small

I took my in-laws here got lunch and we were all impressed with both the quality of food and the speed of service, especially since there were several groups also ordering around the same time. You simply must try the salted caramel chocolate tart. The accompanying ice cream (Winston's?) is divine.
