Smartly, sensitively refurbed 250-year-old pub with dogs and two fires in the lovely flagged bar and a wicked pear and ginger pudding

Read guest comments

Dogs are welcome in this ancient warren of a pub where canine sketches adorn the walls; the pub's own pup – is often around. Enter to a mouthwatering aroma of imaginative dishes from chef/co-patron Sarah Keightley. Crispy-battered cod and chips with caper berries and mushy peas are served on The Red Lion Times, and pork tenderloin comes wrapped in pancetta with apple purée and black pudding. A meltingly warm pear and ginger pudding with toffee sauce rounds it all off nicely. Easy to find, this characterful pub has benefited from a wonderful refurb and there's space for everyone, from the pool room to the restaurant to the beautiful flagged bar with fire and wood-burning stove. There are five bedrooms too, the quietest at the back, which reflect the unfussy approach: natural colours; comfort and attention to quality make up for their size, though the King Room has an ante chamber should anyone snore! It is cheerful, hospitable, and breakfasts are worth waking up for.

Lisa Phipps & Sarah Keightley:

  • Originally built as a coaching inn in 1748, our Grade II listed free house is located in the Cotswolds, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
  • With tales of witches in the village and a nearby prehistoric stone circle (the Roll Right Stones), there is as much of interest to the historian as there is the tourist.
  • The Rollright Stones is a ancient site consisting of three main elements, The Kings Men stone circle, the King Stone, and the Whispering Knights.
  • Just a 15 minute drive away in Moreton in Marsh lies Batsford Arboretum - a must-visit for families and a great opportunity to take in the great outdoors!
  • Nearby in beautiful Stratford upon Avon you'll find Shakespeare's Birthplace - and you can even take your dog around the gardens!
  • Head further into Oxfordshire, and after just a 25 minute drive you'll find the 18th Century Blenheim Palace in Woodstock - home to the 12th Duke of Malborough, World Heritage Site & all-round great day out.

"We enjoyed our stay as did our golden retriever. I did fail to notice that they didn't open till 6pm. Since we arrived about 4pm this could have been awkward. However we found one of the ladies who was very welcoming and helpful. The local dog owners are sociable - nice!"

"Stayed 2 nights on busy bank holiday weekend. Excellent standard of accommodation, clean, comforting and welcoming. Service throughout was excellent - the staff obviously enjoy their work! I wouldn't hesitate to book again and cannot recommend enough!"
