Fancy giving the driver a rest and enjoying a car-free break in the Cotswolds? Touring the picturesque Cotswold villages...
There are many excellent places to eat and drink in the wider Central Cotswolds area, with the major towns of Cirencester, Cheltenham, Stroud, Stow-on-the-Wold, Bourton-on-the-Water, Northleach and Burford containing a wide variety of tea shops, pubs and restaurants, catering for most tastes and budgets.
The list below focuses on some of the traditional Cotswold pubs located in the lovely villages throughout the Central Cotswolds (as ownership and chefs change regularly, we are unable to give specific recommendations regarding the quality of any particular establishment):
We recommend phoning in advance, to check opening times and availability of food, especially during the quieter months of the year. Many pubs accept children and dogs, but you should always check this in advance.
