Cotswolds cafes and pubs for cyclists

_MG_0063PSxIn the process of researching my forthcoming cycling guidebook to the Cotswolds I have found it hard to find out in advance where good cafes en-route might be.

So to help others cycling in the Cotswolds and around, I’m collecting an informal list of those that seem good (either because I stopped at them and they were great) or because they looked good as I passed by – having probably stopped at an earlier establishment, or was just a tad too soon in the route!

Just a few to begin with, I’ll add to them as and when 😉

If you have any additional suggestions for good cycling cafes or pubs in the area, please contact me to add them to the list.
