A handsome Cotswold inn perfect for whiling away an hour or two

Right in the heart of the village, the Crown is surrounded by the peace and quiet of the Golden Valley. Once a simple cider house, it’s a classic 17th-century Cotswold-stone inn that’s full of old-world charm, with honey-coloured stone walls, beams and open fireplaces where logs blaze in winter. Plenty of seating in the large garden allows for contemplative supping during the warmer months. Gloucestershire beers, such as Stroud Organic and Laurie Lee’s Bitter, are usually showcased alongside others from the region, and a good choice of wines by the glass is served in the restaurant and three inviting bars. Fresh local food with lots of seasonal specials is the carte’s promise. Smoked haddock, leek and pearl barley risotto with a poached egg makes a tasty starter, to be followed perhaps by curried chicken Kiev with home-made mango chutney and cauliflower biryani. For non-meat eaters, the vegetable hotpot with braised red cabbage is ideal.
