An English country pub serving tasty food with stylish rooms in the Cotswolds village of Barnsley.


Just 4 miles from the market town of Cirencester, and in perfect striking distance of Bibury, Burford and Bourton-on-the-water, The Village Pub is a classic English country inn, with oak-beamed ceilings, dimly lit corners and roaring open fireplaces. Whether you’re stopping for supper, pulling up a stool for a pint or would like to rest up in one of our 6 gorgeous bedrooms, there’ll always be a warm welcome from behind the bar! Over the road, just a few paces away, Barnsley House is being sensitively restored into THE PIG-and The Village pub, set to open September 2024.

The pub started life as 3 cottages which were converted in the early 18th century into The Greyhound Inn, until the 1920s when the pub changed its name to The Village Inn. Ownership passed to the Cirencester Brewery on the 6th September 1935, and in 1952 it became Grade II listed. About half a century later The Village Inn swapped “inn” for “pub”, and after a brief 2-year stint as The Boot, it reopened in the Summer of 2024 as The Village Pub.


Across the road from us you’ll find our sister hotel, THE PIG, where you can book a table in their restaurant or spoil yourself with a spa treatment during your stay at the pub.
