There was a mix up with the room price but it wasn't the fault of the staff. The food was much better than expected and we ate there three times in two days. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

Friendly staff and great food.

We stayed here as we thought it offered easy access by taxi to Cotswolds Distillery, it doesn't, but that is not the fault of the hotel. We found the staff to be friendly and welcoming, the room modern, warm and comfortable (although the mattress was a bit firm for our taste) and the breakfast was of the best full English breakfasts I have ever had with locally sourced ingredients. Similarly our evening meal was excellent. Would definitely stay here again.

Bathroom and bedroom had not been cleaned . Couldn't find anyone to complain to, so left immediately. Under new management soon posters were a sure sign the current management had given up .

Great staff, tired building

The staff are lovely and couldn't make you feel more welcome. The brewery who owns the place should spend some money as the place looks tired.

My girlfriend and I stayed for one night in August. We arrived at around 5pm on a Saturday, was greeted at the bar, and taken to our room by the very friendly Gareth. The room is located towards the rear of the property through a separate (but attached) courtyard. We stayed in room 1 (I believe of 4). The room was spacious, with a good sized double bed and the usual amenities. The bathroom was designed for those with disabilities, so if you are staying and have a disability room 1 may be a good one to request in advance. The pub is located on its own down a very quiet country road. It is a fair walk elsewhere or into Hook Norton proper. We didn't mind this after a day at the Hook Norton Brewery, and was happy to spend the evening having dinner and drinks in the bar/restaurant areas. The food was very nice, good sized portions and made with extra care by a very good cook. We had starters and a main (no dessert as we were full). The homemade pie (steak & kidney this time) was very nice. At least three Hook Norton ales are on tap, meaning this is a good place to stay if you fancy sampling a few during the evening. After our meal we did, and sat in with the locals. This is a dog friendly pub, and we really enjoyed making two furry friends during the evening. Also to add that parking & WiFi is free, breakfast is provided in the morning (full English with orange and hot drinks) at around 9am, and check-out was relaxed too (11am but with some flexibility). A very relaxed stay.
