We stayed at The Falkland Arms overnight about a week ago. We had a very warm welcome on our arrival and our room had not long been beautifully refurbished. It seemed that no expense had been spared on it and the soft furnishings were just stunning. A very comfortable room ( and bed ) although sadly the bathroom was just soooooo small! We had a delicious meal in the evening, the bar area has great ambiance . This place is delightful. Would we return ? yes of course but would request a room with a bigger bathroom !

We went to the pub for lunch to celebrate my mum's 69th birthday. Positives were obviously the lovely building and the two young women serving who were working like mad to keep the whole thing running. That's where it ends unfortunately. We arrived at 1pm and our food came at 2.30pm by which point the adults had lost their appetite and my daughters were extremley hungry. There was obviously a problem in the kitchen as we heard the chef getting agitated and we were told there was only 1 chef as opposed to 2 and that instead of prioritising us he had been serving the smaller tables. The worse thing though was the quality of the food. The risotto was too thick and very salty and the 'rustic garlic bread' was french bread halved with very little flavour. The worst, however, was the fish finger sandwich which was several pieces of hard batter between bread with no fish in site. Literally a batter sandwich. This was then replaced by a tuna sandwich which was fine but the salad on the side was slimey. By this point I'd given up asked for a discount, was given 15% and we left. Despite the beautiful setting I would not recommend this pub.

i've a cottage in chipping norton and been travelling between there and my home since 2016 and only just found the falklands.
the staff are a real credit to the place, very friendly. my partner and i went for lunch recently and sat outside in the lovely sunshine with our dogs. we had a risotto starter each which in itself was plentiful and delicious.
we will certainly be visiting again as its a mere 5 minutes up the road from Chippy! next time we will try the sunday roast.

Great traditional atmosphere, food ok.
Definitely a great example of the old traditional pub with great beer choices and food.
Set in a tiny village full of charm and thatched houses.
Had fish n chips, was ok...nothing out of this world but fresh and well priced.
Have eaten here before and is good.

We chose the pub because it seemed good value and was dog friendly and was in the area we wanted to stay.
First impressions - picture box pretty Cotswolds village. Pub in perfect setting. Lovely low beamed bar and downstairs rooms. Twisty, narrow stairs to bedrooms - not suitable for anyone with mobility issues. Bedrooms small but beautifully furnished. Lovely outside terrace to front and beer garden to rear.
Food - it's not cordon bleu but it is excellent local ingredients well cooked - lamb pie was excellent as was soup. T.bone at £24 seemed a little pricey but still good, next time I'd choose something cheaper. Good wine selection. Service is slow but we had all evening so not a problem at all and everything is freshly cooked. Breakfast - superb. Full English was spot on amd Eggs Benedict really good. Danish pastries were lovely. Have they changed their cook lately? Just wondering in light of some previous reviews.
Were concerned re noise from bar and outside terrace - no insulation between bar and bedroom floor and we had our window open - but all the noise died down by around 11pm and we slept soundly until woken by passing horse riders in the morning. The pub is towards the end of a dead end road so no passing traffic.
