The Crown and Trumpet, April 2001

You'll find this 17th century inn down a side road at the west end of the village green near the parish church on the road to Snowshill. A great atmosphere in the pub which is usually full of a mix of locals and visitors. A Whitbread lease house which seems to always have a beer available brewed by the local Stanway brewery based in Stanway House. Stanney Bitter (abv 4.5%) is usually the beer on offer with Lords-a-Leaping (abv4.5%) appearing around Christmas. My return visit just before Christmas 2002 was rewarded by sampling the wonderful rich malty flavour of the latter mentioned beer.

Don't come expecting to get a space in the pub's car park as it only takes about 5 cars at a squeeze. It's a 17th-century Cotswold stone inn with a big log fire in the bar. There's also seating outside on picnic tables, a real suntrap on a Summer's evening. Make sure you try one of their excellent home made pies (the Evesham is my personal favourite with its delicious plum sauce and beef from the local butcher), and while you're waiting you could try some of their tasty garlic bread with cheese. If you like pubs with live music, they often have live bands performing in the bar.
