The Feathers

'A lovely old building', David Elliston's 16th-century black-and-white timbered coaching inn is a 'great' town hotel 'with many locals passing through'. There is a 'nice' old-fashioned reception area, and a beamed lounge. A visitor who entered by the bar 'was given excellent advice on the range of eating options'. Fuggles Brasserie, which is thickly hung with hops on the ceiling, is the informal option: a 'fine' risotto and 'good' fishcakes were enjoyed; service was 'friendly and efficient'. In Quills, which has chandeliers and leather seating, Suzie Isaacs is the chef: her modern British menu might include pan-fried scallops, chorizo crisps; Cotswold venison loin, goose-fat Parmentier potatoes, roasted beetroot. Much of the original character of the building is retained in the bedrooms, which have beamed walls and ceilings and antique furniture. Number 5 is the biggest, with a king-size bed and a seating area; another room has an antique four-poster and looks over the town centre. Breakfast had 'a good choice of fruit and cereals and a very tasty full English'. (RC, and others)
  • Charming panelled restauramt hung with hops. Very helpful barman and serving ladies, all English. Good, straightforward pub food.

  • Still a great place to stay, quaint and atmospheric as ever, with many locals passing through. Excellent welcome at Reception, and bags carried up the quirky old staircase. The bedroom on the second floor was not large but very comfortable, with a view over the High Street. Everything very clean. Bathroom small, but adequate. The excellent Mary still presides benevolently as manageress, and Michael the long-time waiter is as eficient as ever. In fact all the staff are good and friendly. We had a delicious dinner in Fuggles Brasserie, which was as usual very busy, which adds to the good atmosphere. Breakfast was cheerfully served and had good choice. Still a great place to stay, but the Leisure Centre at the back needs a bit of refreshing and updating.
