The Slaughters Country Inn celebrates double award
Local pub, The Slaughters Country Inn, is celebrating after receiving two prestigious awards. The AA has awarded the inn a ‘5 Gold Star Award’, positioning it as one of the best Coaching Inns in the country, and has also awarded its restaurant 2 AA Rosettes from the AA Restaurant Guide.
Both a sign of exceptional quality, the 5 Gold Star Award status recognises the inn’s excellent standards, from its en suite bedrooms with quality beds and furnishings, to its awareness of each guest’s needs, with nothing too much trouble. The inn’s great breakfasts, including fresh local produce, also contributed to the 5 Gold Star Award, while the 2 AA Rosette for the restaurant marks The Slaughters Country Inn as an ‘excellent restaurant, which aims for and achieves high standards and where there’s attention to the selection of quality ingredients’.
Stuart Hodges, General Manager, comments, “We’re thrilled to announce both awards, which are a reflection of the team’s consistent efforts to offer our customers the very best. We’re known for offering delicious food, simply prepared and using the finest Cotswold produce, complemented by a wide selection of local ales, and so we must thank our great local suppliers too”.
Stuart continues, “If you’ve not yet dined or stayed with us, then we’d love to welcome you – summer’s a great time to come and enjoy our riverside terrace either for lunch, dinner or afternoon tea, or simply to enjoy a summer drink, and we look forward to seeing you”.
Events to welcome locals to The Slaughters Country Inn coming up include:
· Saturday 16 August: Family fun day, with free face painting, bouncy castle and games, as well as a delicious bbq on hand to buy an easy lunch!
· Every Wednesday: Fish and chips just £12.50 per person, for a fish main course and a glass of house wine
· Sunday lunch: from £15.95 per person, available every Sunday from 12noon until 3pm
