We had a long wait after the shared starter for our main dishes ..around 45 minutes. Opinions re the food varied, depending on what was chosen, 2 sausage and mash dishes,fine not exceptional. The burger similarly rated. The Pollack was very tasty and well cooked but the pasta dish adequate but not interesting. The service and welcome were friendly and attentive.

Really lovely traditional pub atmosphere, log fire going with comfy sofas. Landlord is so bouncy and friendly, along with his staff they always make you feel so welcome.

Great menu choice and everything is fresh.... it was difficult to decide so we ended up sharing lots of dishes!

Looking forward to our next visit... which will be very soon.

I thought the place was very charming set in its own village. We received a warm welcome once we arrived. The food was delicious and service was great. As we are not locals people came across to chat to us which made us feel very welcome.

The cost of our meal was what we expected for a 2 course.

I would certainly visit again if I was in the area and would also recommend a friend.

We usually love coming to this pub as the food is excellent. However at 7:30pm on Saturday 11th December we were disappointed as a few things on the menu were not available which left only a few choices. One of our party cannot eat fish, so there was only one choice left for her which she did say was lovely. I didn't realise that you had to book a Christmas meal so after looking forward to it all day again I was disappointed. Maybe I should have looked into that further.

We spent our last night in the Cotswolds at the Plough Inn and it was a great way to round off our trip. The food was really good and the service and atmosphere were exceptional. They pub is warm and welding and we finished off our meal with a whiskey by the open fire.

Nice, old, country pub (dating from 1772), food and service were excellent.

My only disappointment was music playing in the background - it detracted from the ambience and didn't fit with the 'oldness' of the pub: but then I'm old... ;)

Great food.
