“Visited on 13th Oct 2020. Cheese city! A few beers too. I had just bought 14 bottles down the road at Worth's Garage (Enstone), so didn't really need a great deal more. However I spied three different beers from 'Shakespeare' and as my daughter is a thespian I bought all three. A little expensive at £3:75 a 500ml bottle, so didn't buy any more (about 20 other semi-local brews to choose from). Pleasant enough staff in a lovely little town.“

“Finally arrived at a time this was open happily, although it was explained to me that the opening times will soon be improving as additional staff has been hired. This feels like it has been uprooted from tourist areas of Bruges or Brussels, the majority of the stock is Belgian, I seem to remember 180 various Belgian beers, but these are the beers that are generally available in the Belgian Bottle shops. There are a few UK bottles plus R.o.World but little surprising. I managed 4 bottles and the prices are somewhat eye wateringly steep, but Moreton is also tourist orientated. It is clean, neat and tidy, the bottles have been lovingly placed, there is an emphasis on Trappist beers which are well stocked, but no Westvleteren. I had better fortune in the Cheese Shop across the road, but if you are short of Belgian ratings then this may be the place to visit.“

“This is handily placed, reasonably within walking distance to Moreton Caravan Club Site under heavy load. The beers are kept amidships to the left within the shop, in a little area of their own. The range is all local beers, but even for me, a local, I was able to pick up several new beers and even new breweries. I was told the range changes often and the beers are popular. Well worth a look particularly with the crazy opening pattern in the Moreton Beer Cellar.“

“May 2018 rating now down to 42. Just national brands on now and no atmosphere unfortunately.
Apr 2015 rating = 52. Town centre hotel on the main road through town, there is comfortable, hushed atmosphere in here, a little like a Library or The Emirates, same thing. Just Wickwar beers on sale on our visit, comfy chairs, the fire still going, I got quite dozy.“

“Rather a smart, restrained, hushed venue in the centre of Moreton, comfortable but not that homely really. The beer range is very limited with just the pretty standard cask ales on my visit, for this area anyway. The food is of pub grub variety, but quite popular on my visit. It is fairly typical of this town where beer variety is hard to come by apart from in the bottle shops.“

“Called into this 2018 Good Beer Guide pub while on a coach trip round Gloucestershire pubs. Chose Prescott brewery beer from the local and National beers from the Enterprise Inns portfolio which was fine. Interior largely open plan with sections going off, and an enclosed garden area at the rear.“

“Called into this pub while doing a coach trip of Gloucestershire pubs. Large room of friendly locals and we chose 2 of the Doonington beers on offer, and both the Gold and the BB ales were fine. 2 large bears standing guard by the fireplace at the bottom of the room.“

“The Moreton Beer Cellar was shut (it has pretty sporadic opening hours) so I popped in here instead to see if I could find any beers to take home. As the name implies, this is a cheese shop first and foremost, with a selection of (according to the website) more than 102 cheeses. The cheeses were in fine fettle, and there was also a superb selection of different varieties of crackers and other cheese related paraphernalia to go with them. THe lady serving me was friendly, enthusiastic and seemed to Know Her Cheeses. They have a small selection of local beers and ciders (all Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire or Warwickshire) to accompany your cheese, including a few brewers and cideries I'd not seen before. Definitely worth a stop for the cheese, and you never know you may pick up a few local beer rates here too.“

“Visited on 30 May 2017. Solid pub in a Cotswolds market town. Service was efficient and my pint of Timothy Taylor Landlord fine. Five beers were on offer, with a few local ones included amongst them. Fine.“

“Friendly Marstons pub just off the main Moreton in Marsh Centre, by a delightful Duck Pond. This appears to be pretty busy on most evenings. The Landlord is popular and front of house. He appears to try and get the most choice out of the beers available to him. The food is pretty decent too. Good spot.“

“Traditional old boozer on the main thoroughfare through town. To the left is a restaurant area, mostly pub grub, to the right is the locals bar. Can be quite boisterous in here as they have t.v’s and football on from time to time. Purely Donnington beers on the hand pulls. No frills just a proper local.“

“We visited on Saturday 2nd November 2013. Considering this was a Marstons pub I was rather surprised that my best pint by some margin came from here, in fact I really rather liked the Jennings Arthurs Knight Porter. A very friendly cosy pub, with a smattering of locals and a nice vibe and lived in feel. Another pub that could probably lose a bit of clutter but here it wasn’t too bad, it just seemed a bit busy. I would suggest that this would be the best pub to make your local, it was a friendly, happy, down to earth place that we both really liked and I am mightily surprised that I am saying that about a Marstons pub.“

“We visited here on Saturday 2nd November 2013. Beer choice here was not especially exciting but there were three from Wickwar one was badged as a house beer, however I read the description and firmly believe this to be Wickwar BOB. We had the house Redesdale Arms ale (BOB) and the Coopers WPA both were in very good nick, this coupled with the fact that it had a wonderful roaring fire, pleasant bar area and good service, led me to feel it should be added to places on here. I understand that this place is also in the Guardian/Observer top 50 best value places to stay in the UK according the snippets proudly displayed around and about. The hotel is located very centrally in the town on the left hand side of the High Street if heading towards Stratford Upon Avon, quite close to the Bell Inn. A good place to duck into in the Winter months especially if that fire is roaring away.“

“We visited here on Saturday 2nd November 2013. I cannot say that this was my favourite place in Moreton however it had the largest beer selection (six handpumps) and it focused on local beers, I had a North Cotswold beer, Loz had a Tring beer which on reflection is a little further away. The beers were fine, the pub was pleasant but we both felt it could be better, get rid of some of the chalkboards, clutter and give it a spruce up, real fire roaring away and it would be a lot better. Apparently J.R.R. Tolkien drank here quite a bit and based The Prancing Pony on this place, looking at it currently you would be hard pressed to believe that, however it was written up on the walking guide map we picked up from tourist information, however I am still rather dubious about the claim.“
