We had afternoon tea, sandwiches, scones and cakes were excellent. Staff were really friendly and attentive. The strawberry mousse was my favourite. We will definitely be back.

A charming 17th-century inn made from rustic Cotswold stone, The Slaughters Country Inn sits on the banks of the River Eye. Comforting, relaxed dining offers seasonal produce, cooked to simple yet refined recipes.

A light salad of candy beetroot, pink fir potatoes and creamed goats' cheese features on The Slaughters Country Inn menu, alongside hearty belly of Old Spot pork with creamed potatoes, pickled red cabbage and a thyme sauce, and a delicate pan-fried Loch Duart salmon with saffron, sorrel, cannellini bean broth and salsa verde. Offerings change with the seasons, while timeless pub classics include a juicy rump beef burger and the Breakspear beer-battered fish and chips.

Lunch at The Slaughters Country Inn includes a host of light dishes alongside gourmet sandwich options, such as honey-roast ham and whole-grain mustard, while an eclectic wine list is sourced from French and New World vineyards. Hearty British ales can be enjoyed by the fireplace in the brightly lit, contemporary interior of this historic Gloucestershire pub.

Frequent events and themed food nights feature at The Slaughters Country Inn. In a rural spot in Gloucestershire, it is 2 minutes' drive from the A429.

    We are staying at the hotel. Excellent breakfasts with a decent range of choices. Evening meals also excellent but,as we’re staying 5 nights,maybe a few extra options on the menu would be desirable. My wife has eaten from the bar menu a couple of times and has enjoyed them-steak and chips one night and fish and chips the other. I will do so tonight,as I’ve tried all the main menu choices now,except the vegetarian option. They’ve all been delicious but we were surprised there is no chicken (or similar)option.
    But the food,ambience and staff are all excellent. It’s an absolute pleasure to dine here!

    Service left a lot to be desired. Struggled to attract the attention of the waiting staff and they weren't very attentive. Burger wasn't the best but I did enjoy the location.

    Although having a wonderful location this was one of the worst dining experiences I have had. In fairness the staff were polite & professional but there is no atmosphere to this venue which as a country Inn should be warm & inviting but is cold & anodyne. The bar area is small & uncomfortable & the sitting areas mixed with bar dining is uncomfortable & spartan. The restaurant is slightly better but very spread out & no atmosphere either.
    The steak I had was inedible & I ate 20% of it & at £25 I would not have expected the gristle I was served. On complaint they agreed to not charge me for a pudding which I had no appetite for following the main course. My partner had the fish of the day which she said was tasty but the serving was miniscule again at a high price.
    I can only assume this makes enough money on the rich tourists so does not need to try.
    Overall I will not be returning & will not recommend this to anyone. I did not want to give this a star but it is the minimum score.

    Food was excellent and the service was very professional and friendly. Not the cheapest but worth every penny. Will definitely return next time we visit the area.

    The service was good and the restaurant setting was beautiful.

    Very poor. I had booked over the phone discussing restaurant menus etc... however on arrival my party of 9 was offered a barbeque. The gentleman on the grill was clearly not trained and not using a meat thermometer. Meat was being returned and the Slow cooked pork was extremely salty!
