Traditional pubs/inns with rooms

I'm wanting to take 3 or 4 of my close friends and their wives away for my 30th in March. I've decided that I would quite like to stay in a nice pub or inn, with really good food and even better ale.

We've had a look on the Old English Inns website, and have found one in Oxfordshire, one in Gloucestershire, and one in Somerset that we like the look of, however they appear to be part of a Greene King chain, and the menus all appear to be the same. We're going to go check out the Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire ones tomorrow as we're both at home.

Does anyone on here have any recommendations for really good pubs or inns, with rooms, good food and beer, in the Oxfordshire/Wiltshire/Gloucestershire/Berkshire sort of area?

Cheers
S

Hi mate, sorry, there'll probably be at least 4 couples so we'd need 4 rooms or more. I did think of you though!

If you have any recommendations though..

We went to a pub/inn for a long weekend a few years back. I think it was in Lower Brailles in Oxfordshire - recommended, even though i can't remember the name of the inn. Twas run by Hook Norton, did b and b, live music etc.

No not at all mate. Only thinking 'that way' as my best friend lives in Swindon, another in Guildford, us in East Grin, and another in Croydon.
