The Inn at Fossebridge is immersed in 300 years of history… as a coaching inn on the Fosseway and as a hostelry named after wealthy landowner Lord Chedworth.
Indeed the Inn had opened by 1759 and was then known at Lord Chedworth’s Arms, a name recalled in the wonderful old bar that still exists today; the name was changed to The Fossebridge Inn in the early 19th century.
It is today a beautiful quintessential Cotswold retreat, with wonderful accommodation, grounds and fine food. The Inn is within an hour from Stratford-upon-Avon, Cheltenham and Cirencester, the delightful capital of the Cotswolds, Burford and Stow-on-the-Wold. You will find many pretty hamlets and villages nearby which seem to look today as they did a few centuries ago.
The Inn at Fossebridge is situated in a dip on the A429 (Fosse Way), 6 miles north of Cirencester at Fossebridge, between the Gloucestershire towns of Cirencester and Northleach. The bar is OPEN EVERY DAY from 12 noon.

This attractive 17th Century family run free house, located in the pretty hamlet of Fossebridge in the heart of the Coln Valley, has a rich history as a former coaching inn. It is now a quintessential Cotswold dining pub and Country Hotel. The Inn’s original features of exposed beams, stone walls, open log fires and polished flagstone floors still remain today. The traditional Cotswold Bar and restaurant is located in the oldest part of the building and is a wonderful retreat to enjoy local ales and good food combined with high levels of comfort and service. The daily special’s board and creative dining menus offer dishes using fresh, local and seasonal produce, from light lunches, Fossebridge Classics to hearty main courses.
We can also cater for large private parties, weddings and events in our two adjoining Georgian dining rooms, overlooking the four-acre gardens and lake. The hotel has eight luxury en suite bedrooms and in the grounds a self-catering Lakeside Cottage accommodating 10 guests.
Delightful walks are to be discovered from here up to Yanworth and the Chedworth Roman Villa.
