  1. Above expectations

    Fantastic varied menu, after our third visit, the rest of the party decided on the Sunday roast, I chose fish. Well, although the roasts were enjoyed by all, the definite surprise winner was the fish. Don’t underestimate the quality and uniqueness of the dishes- compliments to the Chef.

  2. We enjoyed the experience and would definitely recommend

    We stayed at The Ragged Cot for 2 nights and booked one of the ‘domes’ one night to celebrate my wife’s birthday. We were lucky with the weather and the ambiance was brilliant, with a nice touch being we were able to play our favourite music from their bluetooth speaker. There was a heater to keep us warm as the evening closed in and they dressed the table with flowers and we had champagne (pre request). Service is slow, so recommend you take this into account – we waited an hour for starters. They were clearly short staffed and the serving staff were young and inexperienced.

  3. Highly recommend

    We had a delightful couple of hours in one of your outside pods. The food was delicious, only wish we’d had space for pudding!

  4. what a lovely experience!

    the food was excellent and we received service with a smile (despite being short staffed on bank holiday). I would 100% reccomend booking to eat in one of their bubbles, such a unique dining experience.

  5. We had the most amazing evening celebrating in our pod We sang
    and danced Out waitress was lovely The food fantastic and the kids want to
    come back That’s got to be a good recommendation !!

  6. We had a great time

    We booked a dome for our anniversary and the pics didn’t do
    them justice it was spectacular! The food was incredible, fab service,
    Georgie and team looked after us. Will definitely
    book again was worth the 2 hour drive

  7. Had a fantastic evening in the pod , lovely atmosphere, lights,
    heater , music and the service was second to none and the food amazing

  8. look forward to our next visit!

    Our experience at the dome was a birthday celebration and it
    couldn’t have been more magical. Our lovely waitress Lily really added to our
    enjoyment with her friendliness and attention to detail. We couldn’t have
    been better looked after!

  9. We had the nicest time

    We went all out and hired one of the pods! I didn’t know what to expect, but we really enjoyed having our own
    personal space. Our 5 year old definitely enjoyed being able to run about
    outside whenever she wanted! The food this time was great and the service was
    really good. We will definitely be coming back again soon.

  11. Amazing!

    We had a really lovely evening Every aspect was great the food the friendliness of the staff and the venue were all super and thank to the Chef for the lovely birthday chocolate brownie message for our daughters birthday. It made the evening very special. We can’t wait to visit again

  12. We loved it

    It was an amazing evening. I felt sorry for the staff bringing
    our food out in the rain but our meals weren’t spoilt. The whole ambience
    made it special for this birthday get together. My only
    comment would be to put down some stepping stones to the pods as the grass
    was muddy underfoot.

  13. The dome was excellent

    We loved the dome dining and would definitely return for drinks however the food was not as expected and unfortunately the roast dinners for extremely salty. The waitress was friendly however we were waiting a long time to get a couple of drinks and between courses.

  18. Most wonderful experience

    We booked a dome as a celebration and had the most wonderful experience, the food was exceptional and service was very attentive for our bottomless brunch! To have cooling on a sunny day was a blessing and a Bluetooth speaker was lovely to play our own music!

  19. Waited a long time for food but it was lovely once it arrived.

    Very friendly staff too.

  20. Lovely time

    Came here for a meal on Sunday for my birthday with my family. We had hired one of the pods in the garden which was lovely & something abit different. The staff were so friendly, hard working & professional & the food was delicious. Had a lovely time & will definitely be back soon.

  26. Fabulous.

    Great novelty Dome Dining ! Tasty food. Superb service.
    (Recommend novelty table lighting from The Range, twig-like, pastel sphere bulbs to add magic ) ; )

  27. Family anniversary meal

    Family meal for six. The service, food and value was absolutely outstanding. I would highly recommend this pub. I would like to say a special thank you to our waitress Irene. She was attentive , funny and a real character. We had a meal in one of their new outdoor pods. What an amazing dining experience. Thank you.

  28. The food was excellent, but...

    The food at The Ragged Cot was excellent. We had to ask twice for a bluetooth speaker. The whole experience of being in the dome was great but it is hard to get the attention of staff when needed. We ordered 2 coffees which were served and drunk before the pudding for my daughter was brought out.

  29. Beautiful space Excellent dining

    My partner booked this for a long overdue get together with friends. The setting is outstanding located in the restaurants front garden which is typical English country garden that you often find in the Cotswolds. The clear domes are fantastic and the whole space came alive at dust with the table lamp and led strip. The food was excellent, so were the drinks and food. Highly recommended

  30. The atmosphere was brilliant.

    The atmosphere was brilliant. We really enjoyed dining at the dome. The food was delicious and the service was brilliant. Definitely recommend!

  31. Loved the dome experience

    I felt very looked after and our waiter responded quickly to my husbands blood low by bringing bread out. The food was quite cold and lots of rice and bread and not enough curry which was really tasty. I loved the dome experience though.
