We love exploring the UK countryside and going on mini breaks in our home country. The Cotswolds are a beautiful part of Great Britain, the most beautiful walks, stunning countryside and also amazing food.
We recently stayed in a cottage in Ashton Under Hill, which is very close to Evesham. The cottage was opposite The Star Inn. We could not have asked for a better location for the cottage being located opposite the cutest nicest pub. Being able to drink and literally walk 30 seconds home was pretty epic!
We would recommend this pub if you are staying nearby, or want to do a walk around Bredon Hill. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is fab. The staff are super friendly and relaxed.
There is also lots of outside seating for the summer and kids play area too so we can imagine when its a hot summers day it can get pretty busy.
The Sunday roast was INCREDIBLE, I don’t think we can rave about this enough. There are lots of meats to choose from, pork, lamb, beef or chicken, or for £2 extra you can have the mixed meat roast. This is what we went for and it was well worth it.
Each guest is given a plate with meat, roast potatoes, new potatoes, roast parsnips, stuffing balls, pigs in blankets, the crispiest Yorkshire pudding and covered in gravy. Vegetables are given to the whole table to share: carrots, broccoli, green beans, cabbage AND cauliflower cheese. They also provide more jugs of gravy too! There is just SO much food, no one will go hungry!
There is also lots of choice for dessert, the afogato is the perfect end to the meal. However the bakewell sponge is also amazing. For chocolate lovers there are plenty of chocolate puddings to choose from too.
We attending the Monday evening quiz which was an interesting experience. The quiz was basically full of locals but they made us feel so welcome! The host was brilliant and made sure we knew what we were doing too and kept checking up on us. However the questions were SO hard and we were very useless and lost the entire thing! We still had fun none the less. It costs £1 per person to enter. Afterwards they bring out sandwiches and chips for everyone to enjoy.
This is like Dominos two for Tuesdays only a billion and one times better. Buy one main course and get one free – how epic is that. There is a small menu to choose from but its excellent value. We recommend you book in high season.
There are soooo many different gins to choose from and they come in a massive goblet just how we like it. We would love to return to sample them all! The staff take great pride in making the gins too which is lovely.
If you are ever in the area we suggest you pop into this traditional pub or why not do a walk in the area and stop off half way round or after your long walk, you wont regret it!
