Smart pub dining in Castle Combe

At the heart of the Cotswold‑stone village of Castle Combe sits this characterful 12th‑century coaching house. It’s a well‑loved spot where those who’ve spent the day rambling the countryside or teeing off at sister venue The Manor House’s 18‑hole golf course gather to feast on authentic country fare.

Satiation can be found in head chef Jamie Barnett’s crowd‑pleasing two AA rosette menus which offer an upmarket take on traditional pub classics. In summer, ravenous patrons devour the likes of wild boar lasagne with Tunworth cheese, summer truffle and herb salad while sitting out on the sunny terrace. In winter, a cosy dining room with log fire awaits. For special celebrations and group dinners, the Oak Room offers intimate private dining for up to 12.

It’s a known truth that a hearty supper often leads to a sleepy head, so make a night of it by booking one of the The Castle Inn’s sumptuously furnished rooms. With their charming period features and calming colour palette, sound slumber is assured.

Trencherman’s tip: guests can also enjoy a fine dining experience by booking the tasting menu in Michelin-starred restaurant Bybrook at The Manor House.
