    The Butchers arms

    The neighbouring village to us has a nice gastro pub called the Butcher’s Arms – the village is called Sheepscomb and is in Gloucestershire. There is a lovely pub garden with a view across the valley.

    The food was nice and it was possible to have a meal and a drink for around £10 – this was my husbands goat cheese rossoto which looked yummy – he certainly devoured it!
