We were very impressed by the choice and quality of the food here: dishes were imaginative, with nice touches such as edible flowers & unusual leaves in the salads. Portions are generous and good value for money. We will definitely return soon.

You cannot fault the service and the friendly staff, who make you feel welcome. This was the first place my wife and I stayed for one night back in Dec 2013 - very nice refurb, oak everywhere.

We met our friends for lunch here today, all had a different meal and all of us enjoyed them very much. Excellent quality and service and prices very reasonable. Only problem for us, too many dogs allowed in the eating area. Not too bad if...More

Thank you for the question JillKirk. As the other kind reviewers have said, we do allow dogs on the patio, both front and back and we do indeed put out water for them. They are also allowed in the bar area of the pub- but... More

A traditional rural pub, surrounded by countryside but easy to travel to. The Kilcot was built in the 1690's and was totally derelict 10 years ago. It was bought by a local family and is still run by that family. The pub was refurbished by local craftsmen, using local materials and that ethos still continues today. Our food and drink offering is local and uses all of the produce available locally. Our juices are from the fruit farm 4 miles away and our ciders from a family firm 7 miles away. The food is all locally sourced and traceable- all of our meat comes from within a 30 mile radius. We also have an extensive vegetarian menu with vegan options. Winner of the 2017 Taste of Gloucestershire Awards Best Pub. Runner up in the Observer Food Monthly Best Sunday Lunch Category Winner of the 2017 Forester Business Awards- Best Restaurant Rooms graded 4* Gold by the AA
