Thoughtfully refurbished inn with creative food, quite a range of drinks, a friendly welcome and seats outside; bedrooms

Bedrooms in this country stone inn are comfortable and attractively refurbished and make a good base for exploring the area. Popular locally, the beamed bar has a cosy area with three leather chesterfields grouped around a table by an open fire, an informal dining space with farmhouse chairs and cushioned pews around tables on bare boards and a nice little window seat for two. Stools line the bar where friendly staff serve a beer named for the pub (from Brakspears) plus Brakspears Oxford Gold, Otter Amber and Wychwood Hobgoblin on handpump, 16 wines by the glass and six malt whiskies. Décor in the dining room includes some unusual postage-stamp wallpaper, an attractive mix of chairs and tables on rugs, floorboards and flagstones, plus chandeliers, church candles, fresh flowers and modern artwork on pale painted walls; background music and TV. The back terrace has chunky tables and chairs under parasols and there are a few picnic-sets at the front. Sister pub is the Plough at Kelmscott.

Liz Bell - Jan 2015 The Five Alls, Filkin, Lechlade, Gloucestershire, GL7 3JQ tel 01367 860875 A Cotswold inn transformed by its current owners, Sebastien and Lana Snow who formerly ran the Swan public house and restaurant at Southrop, Gloucestershire. This rather unusually named pub with its boutiquey restaurant and rooms stands in the picturesque village of Filkins, which used to be on the main road between Burford and Lechlade on Thames before the bypass was built. It is a rather attractive traditional 18 Century Cotswold stone building nicely proportioned rooms, with large bar with rugs on wooded boards two flagstoned dining areas with period prints on walls painted in muted greys. Lana’s interior designer sister, Miranda’s influence is evident throughout. A large fireplace dominates the main bar with 3 comfy leather sofas. The soft furnishings and throws on the sofas come from the Cotswold Woolen Weavers Mill also in the village. Sebastien’s cooking reflects a modern British style with a hint of Italian. His mother was Italian which might explain that! They make good use of freshly, locally sourced produce which will include hearty soups served with their own freshly baked bread and dipping oils. The mains may include herb-crusted cod, 28 day aged sirloin, roasted sea bream, venison, calves liver and bacon and more traditional pub favourites fish and chips. The food is very well priced, especially the £16 two-course set menu. The restaurant is very popular and booking is usually advised. However there are several stripped wooden tables in the bar where a separate bar menu is available. Lana is usually found front of house supervising her very efficient team. The four double rooms from £110 including breakfast offer good value although there have been some grumbles about lack of creature comforts such as a kettle and the ubiquitous T bag.


Excellent and interesting food. Nice garden for childrenT
