Flower bedecked cider presses in pretty garden. Efficient, friendly service, excellent bar food including lunchtime sandwiches, ploughmans, and basket meals plus a selection of more substantial dishes such as steak and kidney in Yorkshire puds, chicken lasagne or curry. Doom bar & Butcombe from the barrel. Excellent walks through Newent Woods and over May Hill. Should be a main entry.

Brusque and rude staff when we visited for a drink after walking on May Hill. Not Dog Friendly Not Child Friendly. Won't be gonig back

Visited the much talked about Glasshouse Public House, having used it many years ago as a local. We could not book as there were only 3 of us, so we waited 2 hours before we actually started our meals, sat at the very table we had sat at 2 hours earlier with our drinks. Don't get me wrong , we were reassured several times that they wouldn't keep us much longer. As I said we couldn't book but "the now locals" came in and were greeted by the Landlord, being told that their table was ready through there, but there were only 2 of them, this happened more than once. NOT ON OUR LIST OF RE-VISITS.

V poor all round. Brusque anti client landlord who doesn't respond to phone or emails. Avoid going there Sunday lunch time! Just a few peas and carrots, inedible chips and all preprepared food including the apple pie which was awful. Go for a pie or curry, safest bet.
