The World Famous Trout Inn – Lechlade

Has a riverside garden from where the boats depart and in the summer a large marquee is available for shelter.聽 This, along with the Creel bar, which is a garden bar separate from the main building, can be booked for your wedding, party or business function. During the winter months there is a roaring log fire in the main bar, which has ancient wooden beams and some stone floors. Not a fast food or gastro pub, just a family run country inn with a good range of real ales, ciders wines and spirits, all kept in a fine condition and run with panache by Penny and her wonderful team.
