The Ebrington Arms in the tiny, thatched-roofed village of Ebrington, two miles from Chipping Campden, Gloucestershire, is about as quaint a country pub there is. Dating from 1640, it’s one of those cosy places one dreams of in the English countryside, with low-beamed ceilings, wood and flagstone flooring, a roaring fire in the inglenook fireplace.
If you’re looking for food, seasonal fare is served (with organic produce, much of which is grown on a nearby farm) alongside Cotswold pub classics. There is a selection of local ales from the pub’s own Yubberton Brewery, as well as wines from independent growers.
Above the bar and dining rooms, there are five charming bedrooms if you wish to stay the night.
“This hidden treasure set in a gloriously unspoilt village is a modern day version of a country tavern – it’s at once a genuine pub that brews its own very smooth ales; a lovely restaurant with real local flavour; and a charming hotel with rural-chic bedrooms.”
