See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

The Catherine Wheel is an impressive example of "provincial baroque" architecture. The facade and front rooms were built in 1680 as an addition to a much older house. By 1740 it was a coaching inn changing its name to the Catherine Wheel about 40 years later. Simple, sympathetic décor complements the exposed stonewalls and large open fireplaces. Inside it feels like a traditional Cotswold pub. Good ale, good food and a warm and welcoming interior. Large cosy bar area with rooms off and a courtyard-style garden with a covered area.
