Blackthorn _ left this review about Keepers Arms

An old stone built pub in the centre of this quaint Cotswold village, this has a surprisingly contemporary interior, perhaps recently refurbished. A large pile of logs was stacked just inside the porch door which is a sure sign of a proper fire, and there is a small beer garden at the front of the pub with views across the rolling hills.

The main bar area is a pleasant enough spot, with wooden boards on the floor, a big stone fireplace for all those logs and a few beams on the ceiling. The paintwork was a pale shade of green, with some cream painted wood panelling on the lower part of the walls. To the left is a larger room divided in to two parts. This had another smaller fireplace, some black and white photo’s on the walls and an exposed stone wall at the back, which would have been an attractive feature but for the plasma stuck in the middle of it. Some illuminated twigs completed the interior decorations. Landlord was friendly and efficient, managing to serve two punters at once on an unexpectedly busy Friday evening.

The food menu was a decent selection of pub grub, with most of the mains being in the £8 - £12 range. We had Bangers & Mash that came with three large, decent quality sausages and was good value at around £8. A Fish Pie from the specials board was a similarly decent dish with plenty of chunky pieces of fish. The accompanying veg was an interesting selection of roasted root vegetables rather than the usual carrots and peas.

Beers on tap were Butcombe, Tribute and Betty Stoggs. The solitary cider was the excellent Ashton Press. All in all, well worth checking out.
