We are so delighted that The King’s Head Inn, is included in THE GUARDIANS ’10 of the best cosy pubs with rooms for an autumn break’ listing.

“Locals have been propping up the bar of this Cotswolds village inn since the 16th century. A low ceiling held up by ancient beams adds to the cosiness, with oak settles and an inglenook fireplace completing the picture.

It’s a beautifully atmospheric place to sip a real ale or a glass of wine from the impressive drinks list – the local farmers who supply the Cotswolds lamb and rotisserie chicken on the menu are regulars.

While owner Archie Orr-Ewing has deliberately maintained the pub’s heritage feel, his wife, Nicola, has given the 12 bedrooms a more contemporary twist, with stylish fabrics and wallpaper, pretty rugs, and the odd flea market find.”
