Harden's says

In this Cotswold village, this 17th century coaching inn has received a major makeover as a 19-bedroom hotel and contemporary restaurant, centred around open-fire cooking. A kitchen-counter overlooks rotisseries and a wood-fired grill, alongside a 40-seater garden room. Alongside conventional main dishes, you can enjoy large cuts of meat and whole fish to share. It’s part of Sam and Georgie Pearman’s Country Creatures family of pubs and inns and has been created in collaboration with Hawksmoor ex-exec chef and Meatopia founder Richard Turner, and head chef, Richard Sandiford. A treatment room will be added soon.

“Very good wood-fired grills are the main feature in this newly converted pub” – a seventeenth- century coaching inn in a Cotswolds village that has received a major makeover as a 19-bedroom hotel and contemporary restaurant. A kitchen counter overlooks rotisseries and a wood-fired grill, alongside a 40-seater garden room. As well as conventional main dishes, you can enjoy large cuts of meat and whole fish to share. It’s part of Sam and Georgie Pearman’s Country Creatures family of pubs and inns, and has been created in collaboration with Hawksmoor ex-exec chef and Meatopia founder Richard Turner, and head chef Richard Sandiford. A treatment room will be added soon. Even an early reporter who found “some teething issues and staff still learning” said it was “a good experience overall, and with well appointed rooms if you want to stay”. William Sitwell in The Telegraph also raved: “Money doesn’t buy you everything, but £6.5 million can get you a pretty special pub.”
