The Old Manse Hotel looks a nice place to stay, there is also a restaurant and a bar area (you can eat in either) we called in for a drink one night and for food the night after, I had a nice mixed grill although of course the Chips were of the frozen kind and were dry, something which was now apparent to be the normal thing In Bourton On The Waters Pubs.
There is a good choice from the Menu though and dry tasteless chips the food was nice.
Situated at the side of the river next to The Kingsbridge this traditional Pub is a great place to stop for refreshments.
we called here on our first evening to have a drink and sit by the Log Fire and warm up, It was Febrary and while nice and sunny during the day it was a bit chilly and was near freezing at night.
The food sounded nice and so we decided to eat here as well, I had a Ribeye Steak that was lovely although the chips were of the frozen kind and they were a dry and tasteless, something i later found to be the norm in Bourton On The Water which was a shame.
despite that the lovely steak made up for it and i did not want to many chips anyway, You cant keep a figure like mine by eating chips all day you know!
Favorite Dish: The Steak was Lovely
The Duke of Wellington is a big Pub, much bigger than it looks from the outside, Its nice and friendly and the service was good.
I had Fish and Chips for lunch before Vicki watched the Rugby on the TV.
Its just your average Pub Grub, the fish was nice but the chips (made from frozen) were a bit dry, something which i found to be the same at the other 3 places we ate in.
A very pleasant spot to stop for refreshment, opposite the village green and within sight of the river.
I enjoyed my toasted teacake (served with butter and jam) and my coffee very much.
Service was pleasant and courteous, the price was reasonable and the interior of the tearooms is exactly how an 'typically English' tea-room should be.
There are plenty of places to stop to eat and/or drink itself, but this place neither charged rip-off prices nor was too full of itself. So I liked it very much. :-)
Thursday we ate lunch in a Pub. I don't remember which one it was, but it was right by the river, so it might have been the Duke of Wellington. This pub has a family room and the website says Small hotel with busy pub trade. Good pub atmosphere - rare for Bourton.
