I booked The Old Butchers for my dads birthday and we were not disappointed. The atmosphere is fantastic, the service was impeccable and the food I could not fault. The staff event went an extra mile to bring my dad a little "happy birthday" desert as a surprise. I would recommend and will 100% be returning!

Wonderful food and service. Ambiance is intimate and quiet but friendly and comfortable (not stuffy or overly chatty). Small space but adds to the charm. Fish soup, scallops w/ seaweed butter and crab spaghetti were nice and flavorful.

Great atmosphere, great food, friendly staff, what more do you need for a great meal out. We would definitely go again and most definitely recommend. Loved it.

Consistently good over a good many years. Excellent menu with a great choice of fish. Always a most enjoyable experience; its our favourite restaurant in the North Cotswolds - and a long way beyond. Good to see it so busy on a dreary Monday lunchtime.

Another wonderful dinner at the Old Butchers. This time we took friends who were equally impressed with the menu, quality of food, excellent service and great atmosphere. You cannot fault it. We will keep returning as this is our favourite restaurant in the area.

Our third visit to the Old Butchers in the past four years. This time was possibly the best in terms of the food. The Gurnard with the tomato/gnocchi/artichoke warm salad was stunning. Best meal of our Cotswold break.

Good food and service - highly recommended. However is it acceptable that customers are allowed to bring a poodle into the restaurant, sit it on a chair at the table with them,whilst they eat?

As a dog owner I was surprised that clients appeared to be allowed to have their dog sitting on a chair at their table and being fed tip bits from the menu - somewhat off putting especially when the waitress pats and fusses the dog between serving other customers without any evidence of a hand wash. Food OK - a bit on the pricey side. Unlikely to return.

If there is a better local restaurant I don't know it. The fact that I have been coming to this restaurant for many years speaks for itself.

Service was excellent. We felt the tables were cramped and this detracted from the overall experience. Food was good but overpriced especially for the small section of skate. Vanilla pannacotta was divine.

Pleasant, friendly service albeit a little slow. Langoustines and prawn cocktail v disappointing, can understand the langoustines not being stellar but no excuse for the cocktail. Bread was poor quality and dry. Monkfish good, could have had more seasoning, the potato & spinach was crudely prepared and served. Steak ok but not best, chips not grand. Coffee poor. Part of the problem was high expectations after reading Giles Coren’s enthusiatic review.

Good location and atmosphere, but service & food could be improved, eg: olive oil and mayo was bitter; menu did not list what comes with the dish - capers with lobster, potatoes with cod; when asking for chips, waitress did not say that potatoes were already included, costing £4.50 more; we were served by four different staff members - confusing; had to ask for things twice - drinks, chips, bill. Overall, fine, but small portions and overpriced - not as good as we were expecting.

Our family have been dining at the Old Butchers for many years and will continue to do so. The menu is also varied, seasonal and excellent quality. With helpful friendly service, why go anywhere else!! Our visitors also love this gem of a restaurant.

We enjoyed our lunch at the Old Butchers but a couple of things would have made it even better! The very low large armchair I sat on at our table was ridiculously low and not suitable for its purpose, more suited to a lounge. Nearly £10 for a small bowl of (very nice) fish soup I thought was pushing it. We both had main course mussels and frites which were lovely but we were not offered finger bowls? Slightly odd!
