our inn

Built in the 14th century to house the stonemasons who built St. James’ Church, the Inn got its name by later being used to store the eight bells that were hung in the church tower. The 17th century saw the Inn rebuilt using most of the original stone and timbers, then was extended in the Georgian period into what stands today – an outstanding example of a traditional Cotswolds Inn.


We look forward to seeing you soon in our 14th-century, family-owned pub in the heart of this charming Cotswold town, where you’ll be greeted with a warm welcome and will remember your visit for all the right reasons.
