Eight Bells


There's a golden glow both inside and outside of this glorious, hanging basket bedecked Cotswold inn. The mellow Ham stone was recycled about 400 years ago from an earlier inn, which originated in medieval times when the set of church bells was stored here prior to hanging. The cobbled entranceway leads into two beamed bars with open fireplaces and, in the floor of one, a surviving priest's hole; rough-hewn stone walls add further period character. Outside is an enclosed courtyard and terraced garden overlooking the almshouses and church. Beers such as Goffs Jouster and Hook Norton Hooky are sourced from the Cotswolds; in a similar vein the produce of these limestone hills and vales is used in many of the seasonally-adjusted dishes from the kitchen. Anticipate roasted loin of Gloucester Old Spots pork with all the trimmings; or seared lamb's liver on bubble-and-squeak with rich onion gravy. A specials board includes fish and seafood dishes.
