Nick Davies left this review about The Howard Arms

The Howard Arms is the fancier of the two pubs in this pretty Cotswold village, and is typical of the area, all the usual guidebook stickers present and correct. It is indeed a handsome building on the village green, beams and stone floors inside. Bar in the middle, cosy area with a fire to the right, sadly occupied by huge chairs making it unusable if someone gets there first. Various rooms off. Just one table without cutlery and reserved signs on a Monday afternoon. At least it was open on a Monday afternoon, you have to hunt around.

HPA, UBU, Landlord and the local North Cotswold Windrush on the pumps. We had a drink of the latter - it was OK but didn't inspire. Nice crisps though.

A nice pub for a summers day with the usual caveat round here to pick your times carefully if your mission is to sample the ales rather than splurge your pools dividend on a three-course meal.

Very handsome country freehouse with emphasis on food. Outside has lots of certificates - inlcluding cask marque (expired) and Sawdays special places.

Set in a pretty location in a lovely village. Most tables set for dining. Four real ales on Ubu, Doom Bar, Hook Norton and Landlord. I may have simply made the wrong choice but my landlord was hazy, on the cusp of vinegar and with small bits of detritus floating in the head. Shame, as it had a lot going for it.

You may be luckier.
