Our Inspector's View

The Miners Country Inn is a real family affair, set in the heart of the Forest of Dean. First impressions are of a quintessential pub with beamed ceilings, stone floors and a bar offering an array of local ales. A strong local trade makes for a bustling atmosphere, but really it's the food that's the focus. The chef-patron uses locally sourced ingredients, and suppliers are championed on blackboards and menus, with most supplying the inn exclusively. Dishes are well conceived and offer classic hearty fare with a modern twist. Bedrooms are light and airy, with modern en suite bathrooms.

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.
