Best pubs in Broadway in the Cotswolds

Posted: Tue, 28th Mar 2023
The Lygon Arms

The village of Broadway is an iconic Cotswold location with a wide main street, independent shops and honey-hued buildings. It is a popular location with visitors heading to Broadway Tower which overlooks the village and is a pleasant walk from where you can enjoy the surrounding views. With many small villages on the outskirts you have a host of country pubs in spectacular locations to enjoy.

The Lygon Arms


The Lygon Bar and Grill is a celebration of all things Cotswolds in a refined and elegant setting that showcases the extraordinary history of this building. Large ornate windows, huge fireplaces and elaborately decorated ceilings are the backdrop to a local and seasonally inspired menu by James Martin. Relax in the lounges with a cocktail and some light bites rather than a full meal if you’d prefer. The pub-style Tavern by James Martin has also just opened and is the perfect place to relax with a local cider or ale.

The Horse and Hound


Found at the end of the High Street, The Horse and Hound is a traditional pub opposite the Broadway Museum and Art Gallery. It is ideal for stopping off for a quick drink on your way through the village or you can enjoy one of their pub meals. Inside you can relax in front of the open fire or on summer days take advantage of the beer garden to the rear.

The Swan


This atmospheric village pub serves seasonal food in its dining area and has a more relaxed bar to the front. With space to dine outside it is a lovely spot any day of the week but they have a particularly impressive Sunday menu which can’t be missed. At the end of the week they offer a wine and dine experience where you can enjoy their delicious menu alongside a luxury wine from their selection.

Crown and Trumpet


A traditional 17th century inn, the Crown and Trumpet is a wonderful Cotswold stone pub with a classic interior. It is an award-winning inn with an open fire and a front patio serving home-cooked meals and local ales. It is incredibly close to the Cotswold Way which passes through Broadway making it the perfect place to have lunch before starting your walk.

The Bell Inn


In the heart of nearby Willersey, The Bell Inn is an impressive 17th century Cotswold farmhouse opposite the Willersey pond. To the side is a wooden bell tower and you have a view of this traditional Cotswold village from the front garden. Choose from a menu of hearty meals and enjoy your favourite drink in your relaxed surroundings.

The New Inn


Stepping into the beamed bar of The New Inn you find yourselves in a wonderfully renovated country pub. With the log fire you’d expect, there is also a skittle alley and a games room. No matter the weather you can dine al fresco here under their covered garden terrace and children and dogs are welcome.

Snowshill Arms


Snowshill is known for its National Trust-owned manor house and gardens and just along the road from here is the Snowshill Arms. A short distance outside Broadway it is well worth a day out. This is a Donnington Brewery pub serving their own beers which are brewed here in the Cotswolds and there is also a menu for lunches and evening meals.

Inn & Brasserie


Just two miles from Broadway you find the Inn & Brasserie in the village of Childswickham. The bar is dog-friendly and they serve meals cooked using local ingredients. There is a large garden to dine outside and the restaurant area is lovely and spacious. The menu combines classic pub meals with some enticing additions.

The Mount Inn


With a spectacular view over the village of Stanton, the Vale of Evesham and over to the Malvern Hills, The Mount Inn is perfectly positioned for drinks in the garden. Set on the Cotswold Way trail, stop off on your walk from Broadway to enjoy a meal cooked using local supplies, including items from a gardener in the village. In the pub grounds you can play boules, just ask for a set from the bar.
