It's axiomatic that people make pubs – on both sides of the bar. They certainly do here. On one side, long-term owners Archie and Nicola Orr-Ewing; on the other, their customers, drawn by a reputation for well-kept real ales and top-quality, locally sourced food. Facing the village green, this stone-built pub dates back to the 15th century; it's been called the quintessential Cotswolds inn. Original structure survives in the low-beamed ceilings, flagstone floors, exposed stone walls and an inglenook fireplace. On the beer pumps, the labels of Hooky Bitter, Purity Gold and Wye Valley appear alongside local lagers; 10 wines are served by the glass. Among choices in the AA Rosette restaurant are deep-fried Windrush goats' cheese salad; vodka-and-tonic soft-shell crab; wood pigeon tart; seafood and saffron risotto; and Tamworth pork and black pudding burger. For dessert, how about affogato?
