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.

    Very Dissapointing....lacking any real care...booked in advance through was cold because fire had not been lit early enough.
    Food was extremely average...unfortunate because we had travelled a fair distance to meet up with relatives

    I hope we would have enjoyed it, but we were unable to get to the hotel owing to the snow.

    The service wasn't good. It was slow and not very friendly. The food was mediocre and the prices are high. Unfortunately, the Inn feels like a tourist trap that takes advantage of its ideal location. I might stop there for a drink after seeing the town, but I wouldn't eat or stay there.

    The food was excellent and the environment was very pleasant. The staff responded well to our requests on the menu. However the service was slow, despite several prompts. If the food and service were both of the same high standard then I would have given a higher rating.

    We dined here for my mothers birthday. The food was delicious, in particular the main dish of roast loin of beef. The service was prompt and the restaurant was very tastefully decorated and not overcrowded. Thank you also for assisting with the presentation of a birthday cake.

    The food was adequate but vastly overpriced for what it was, a real shame. The portions were too small and the children's menu disappointingly narrow. There was very little atmosphere in the 'Inn'. I think it is best described as a small hotel with a 'food room'. Anyone looking for a traditional cosy country pub should look elsewhere. It is a real shame as the setting and building deserve much more. I imagine that the venue primarily caters for out-of-towners, probably wedding guest overspill from the hotel over the road and weekend retreaters so this has dictated to the management how they feel the food proposition should be set up. However just because you are the only 'pub' in the village doesn't mean you should not try. This could be so much more e.g. an excellent, buzzy gastro-pub with rooms, that people would happily pay a premium for. Rather than a sterile interpretation of what management thinks an eating house should be. With a little imagination this could be the go to place for miles around and the centre of the local community - I doubt many locals eat here. A real shame. I must say the staff were excellent, attentive and helpful. They agreed with our criticism of the food gave us a discount. Top marks to them, they deserve more.

    The quality & selection of food, wine & levels of service were outstanding, could not have asked for any more.
