The Maytime Inn

The Maytime Inn

Dominic and Alfie (the dog) would like to welcome you to The Maytime Inn. Nestling in the heart of the beautiful, peaceful and historic Cotswold village of Asthall. Under new ownership and newly refurbished everything is designed to make your visit more enjoyable, from the new herb garden to our relaxing bar and restaurant areas. Our young and passionate team will do their best to ensure a visit to the Inn is a rewarding and enjoyable experience. 

Only less than half a mile off the A40 or B4047 you will find yourself in another world. The river Windrush meanders gently through the beautiful countryside a stones throw from The Maytime Inn which dates back to the 17th Century and in times gone by was a coaching inn with its own Smithy.

The village of Asthall features on many walking routes and what better place than The Maytime to stop, rest and refresh yourself. Your dog may also appreciate a drink!

The Maytime Inn is independent and fiercely so, because of this we can offer you a range of excellently conditioned, regularly changing local ales, ciders and a wide selection of fine wines by the glass. Our Award Winning Chef and his team will set out to delight whether you choose from the a la carte menu, pub classics or even a sandwich. We only use the finest fresh local produce in each dish so you can be ensured of a quality meal, be it a candle lit dinner or a sandwich at lunch.

The village of Asthall is the original home of the famous Mitford sisters and also has a stunning old church set next to the Manor house which regularly hosts popular public events.

The Maytime Inn is within easy striking distance of Burford, Oxford and Cheltenham as well as many other local attractions. If you need more time to explore the area, or simply want a few nights away in quiet, beautiful rural surroundings, we have six en-suite guest bedrooms so we can ensure a truly personal service.

We will also be happy to discuss with you club meetings/dinners and private functions.

We look forward to greeting you at The Maytime Inn and we promise to do our best to ensure you leave with a belly full of fine food, excellent wine and with happy memories.

One review of “The Maytime Inn”

    Gillie Coghlan

    17th August 2017

    The Maytime Inn is a charming, traditional 17th century Cotswold pub, restaurant and hotel, sympathetically modernised, with clean, cool colours in its welcoming bar.

    The restaurant is composed of several interlinking areas leading off the bar, with a room where larger parties could be seated. There is an attractive garden and outdoor seating area, and dogs are welcomed. The menu is modern British, seasonal and locally sourced, with a delicious variety of choices, including the Sharing Fish Platter, which makes a great starter for two, or a tasty light lunch. Vegetarians are also well catered-for, and the presentation of all the dishes is exceptional. There is a wide range of good wines at reasonable prices, with an astonishing choice of gins to choose from, more than 100! A warm welcome is received from Andrew and Dominic, and the ambiance is relaxed and enjoyable. Locals still use the bar ensuring a pleasant mix of diners and drinkers.

    There is a large car park, and the location is in Asthall, only five minutes from the A40.
