Nick Davies left this review about The Great Western Arms

Blockley is very much a chocolate box Cotswold village: if there was a coach park it would be full of fudge shops. The pub is at one end of the village, named for the railway which passes a mile or so down the road. It's built on steeply falling ground, two bars at street level then down a steep staircase to a pleasant terrace. We entered the terrace from the car park, so I only had a quick look inside to rustle up a waiter: it looks like it's had a recent refurbishment and felt too cramped for comfort.

Outside was safe enough, only one other couple at 4pm on a Monday afternoon. Nice Hooky bitter appeared, along with signing-in form and contactless machine, and we enjoyed a pleasant half-hour in the sunshine with a lovely view over the valley.

Hook Norton tied house and cask marque accredited - which make the pint of soup they sold me for £4.10 all the more incredible. A cloudy, poor Hook Norton Gold.

Two other punters in the place on a Sunday lunch and they were of Coffees.

Slow turnover may have explained the dodgy pint.

Can't really say too much to recommend it based on my visit.
