Smart old pub with handsome oak garden rooms, antiques-filled bars, local beers and contemporary food; bedrooms

This smartly converted stone barn makes the best of its lovely position by a bridge over the River Windrush. Some of the elegant, comfortable and warm bedrooms are set beside by the water, and the outdoor seats and picnic-sets share the same view. The little bar has simple antique furnishings, settles and benches, an open fire and (in an alcove) a stuffed swan; locals do drop in for a pint and a chat. The inn is owned by the Devonshire Estate, so there are plenty of interesting Mitford family photographs blown up on the walls. A small dining room leads off from the bar to the right of the entrance, and there are also two garden rooms with high-backed beige and green dining chairs around pale wood tables and views across the garden and orchard. Hook Norton Hooky Gold, North Cotswold Windrush Ale and Purity Bunny Hop on handpump, nine wines by the glass, farm ciders and local draught lager; staff are first class. Background music, board games and TV. The Kings Head in Bledington (Gloucestershire) is run by the same first class licensees.
