Good Hotel Guide Review

Give Django Reinhardt a spin on the vintage jukebox and drop in for a quiz night or for a Sunday-night session on the 1920s Art Deco piano at this fun local hang-out handy for the chic boutiques of Tetbury. Rooms, with wooden floors and a stripped-back chic, are in an annexe across a cobbled courtyard. Some are dog-friendly, several have comfy seating areas, all have luxury toiletries along with serious style. They range from a very snug space with a shower over the bath in the bathroom to a showstopper suite with beams, a mezzanine, an in-room roll-top bath, walk-in rain shower, log-burner and balcony. You can dine in the bar or outside with your dog, or dogless upstairs under the rafters. Chef Stergios Pikos’s menus have ‘a firm vegan theme’: choose a beef burger or superfood burger, smoked tofish or beer-battered fish and chips, a one-pot stew of the day. New this year is the covered, heated ‘Tavern on the Green’ for outdoor drinking. In summer, world street food is dispensed from a silver Airstream trailer. ‘The cheerful young staff, the hubbub of a busy pub and some excellent food made for a very enjoyable stay.’ (DB)
