Super range of beers in welcoming country pub, with spacious bar, open fire and good interesting food

The charming, warmly friendly landlady and her helpful staff keep a fine choice of real ales on handpump here, such as Butcombe Gold, Cotswold Lion Shepherds Delight, Kingstone Abbey Ale, Otter Bright, RCH Pitchfork, Timothy Taylors Landlord and Wye Valley Butty Bach and HPA; also, several wines by the glass, a couple of farm ciders and a good range of soft drinks. The pub is mostly 16th-c and the low-ceilinged bar is spacious but cosily traditional, with a chatty, relaxed atmosphere, a roaring log fire, creaky floors, window shutters, candles in bottles on the tables, miners' lamps on uneven walls, and comfortable furnishings that include cushioned window seats, wall settles and rod-backed country kitchen chairs. Newspapers to read, perhaps quiet background jazz and board games. The walled garden has seats and tables, with more out in front, and the pub is popular with walkers and their dogs. The church opposite, known as the Cathedral of the Forest for its unusual size, is worth a visit.
