This friendly inn offers three different dining options under one roof. Whether you're craving a hearty British meal, an Indian feast or a Chinese supper, you'll find plenty to satisfy here.
The en-suite accommodation offers a comfortable base for those heading out to do some shopping or sightseeing in nearby Gloucester, Stroud or Cheltenham, or for those spending the day at the races. What's more, there is a varied programme of themed evenings and tribute bands, ensuring those staying at the inn and visitors alike are kept entertained.
Weddings, parties and other events can be capably catered for. The Orchard Marquee in the apple orchard is a picturesque setting for big celebrations and weddings, while the Courtyard Marquee is ideal for smaller functions. There is also a light and airy conservatory - great for wedding breakfasts - and a function room that can accommodate 60 guests for business meetings and private dinners.
The cosy, softly lit main restaurant is a lovely setting in which to enjoy classic British cuisine. The kitchen is headed up by an award-winning chef, who loves chatting with customers and, where possible, tailoring dishes to suit their needs. At lunchtime, expect wholesome mains and lighter bites like generously filled panini, fresh salads and tasty omelettes. Visit on Sunday lunchtime and enjoy a well-priced carvery with all the trimmings.
Those dining in the evening might start things off with classic blue cheese, apple and walnut salad, or an antipasti sharing board stacked with finely sliced Parma ham, bresaola ham, salami Milano, mixed olives, home-baked ciabatta and herb olive oil dip. Continue with the inn's signature Fire Sticks, featuring sizzling chargrilled skewered meat or prawns, or a house pie brimming with chicken and ham or steak and Stilton. Finish with a traditional sweet treat like fruit crumble with cream, ice cream or custard, or a generous cheeseboard featuring a selection of English cheeses, biscuits, butter, celery and grapes.
Diners looking to enjoy more exotic flavours can do so at China Garden or Indian Garden. The former is known for its top-quality Chinese dishes, well-chosen wine list and first-class service. Indian Garden is similarly well thought of and is the place to come to enjoy superior Indian cuisine in intimate surroundings.
This versatile establishment offers something for everyone. Whether you opt to stay, dine or host your next event here, you can expect the very best hospitality and professional service.
