Our View

Packed with character, this sympathetically restored, 16th-century building surveys the square in one of England's most appealing market towns. Good then to find on entering the bar – in addition to the real ales, of course – are the daily papers, traditional pub games and a fine range of snacks, baguettes and sandwiches. The Jackrabbit Restaurant, with golden-stone walls, beamed ceilings and a huge candlelit fireplace sets the scene for such culinary delights as roasted cod loin with braised barley, chicken wing, smoked squash and barbecued leeks; poached guinea fowl breast with slow-cooked leg, celeriac and bacon; roast loin of Cornish hake with oat-crumbed mussels, saffron potatoes and bouillabaisse.

About The area

Discover Gloucestershire

Gloucestershire is home to a variety of landscapes. The Cotswolds, a region of gentle hills, valleys and gem-like villages, roll through the county. To their west is the Severn Plain, watered by Britain’s longest river, and characterised by orchards and farms marked out by hedgerows that blaze with mayflower in the spring, and beyond the Severn are the Forest of Dean and the Wye Valley.

Throughout the county you are never far away from the past. Neolithic burial chambers are widespread, and so too are the remains of Roman villas, many of which retain the fine mosaic work produced by Cirencester workshops. There are several examples of Saxon building, while in the Stroud valleys abandoned mills and canals are the mark left by the Industrial Revolution. Gloucestershire has always been known for its abbeys, but most of them have disappeared or lie in ruins. However, few counties can equal the churches that remain here. These are many and diverse, from the ‘wool’ churches in Chipping Campden and Northleach, to the cathedral at Gloucester, the abbey church at Tewkesbury or remote St Mary’s, standing alone near Dymock.
