Excellent all round as usual, one of our favourite pubs.

Unfortunately I didn’t like the terrine starter and I also found the main meal of turkey was lacking in taste. The cranberry was also overpowering, but of course that is a matter of taste. The reception and service we received was excellent and the two waitresses worked hard and were also attentive. I would try the restaurants again and hope that the meal is more to my liking. Trevor

Food was good but nowhere near as good as last year. No atmosphere at all. Bit of a shame really. Just didn’t feel like Christmas.

Very disappointed to be sat in the bar and not the restaurant, that’s unacceptable when a person books well in advance . Service was terrible which I think was due to us not being in the main restaurant. I would not eat with you again I will stick to the plough in Ford , that is exceptional.

We enjoyed the lunch, with the only issue being that the portions were very large so I had to leave some food.

Beautiful place and the best cooked steak I have eaten in years but the staff were the shining star of the visit. Attentive and welcoming.

Great menu and service. Atmosphere was as good as it could be with fewer diners and COVID safety precautions. Still most enjoyable and look forward to coming back.

It’s silly that you don’t trust people that you have to wait till that have ordered food to bring over there beers Never known that before as there can be a long wait between ordering a drink and food other then that can’t complain

A delightful lunch, thank you. Food was delicious, with generous portions. Staff were charming, and highly efficient. Sadly the Wine List was very restricted on Claret, but we consumed a nice bottle of Rioja. Strongly recommended.

Meat was chewy and looked like it had been microwaved and curled up at he end. Yorkshire s were stone cold Only three prawns and no avocado in a £10.50 prawn cocktail start

The food was pretty spectacular! We had delicious warm, runny scotch eggs followed by one venison pie and one risotto, both of which were divine. We even found room to round off with an amazing jam roly poly and lemon posset. The staff couldn't have done more - they even called me super quickly to let me know that my partner had left her bag (a big relief!). The atmosphere was lovely and the decor was so cosy. All in all, the perfect little country pub!

Good food, lovely atmosphere in front of log fire. A proper country pub in beautiful Cotswolds.

Lovely place, great atmosphere, tables nicely spaced out, very Covid safe and just gorgeous food. Nicest meal we’ve had out for a while. Highly recommend!

Service always excellent. Disappointed that the menu has not changed in months. As a local and a regular, the menu get boring. Also need to do fresh chips instead of frozen

Not sure about the pie. Had it twice now - the venison is lovely, but the pastry is quite thick and pasty? Doesn't seem to be a butter pastry? It would also be really good if the chips were from fresh and not frozen as befits a good quality restaurant. Staff good as always
