    Where are the best pubs to hit in the cotswolds? I am going in October and staying near Chipping Campden.

    Have passed through Chipping Campden a few times but never stopped for a pint.

    There are no entries in this years GBG for Chipping Campden but this is not to say you won't find a good pub there.

    In terms of GBG entries in towns villages nearby...

    Bakers Arms in Broad Campden (which I'm guessing will be close?)
    Ebrington Arms in Ebrington
    Horse and Groom in Bourton on the Hill

    There'll be plenty more choices in the bigger towns in that area such as Evesham, Cheltenham and Gloucester.

    To be honest your best bet and the most fun would be visiting some of the towns and villages mentioned and just going in the local pubs, most of the pubs in places such as Broadway sell decent beer and food and I think the same goes for Chipping Campden.

    I would highly recommend you visit Hook Norton (Oxfordshire) and the brewery there, it's about 35 minutes away and is a very interesting tour of a working Victorian tower brewery with a tasting at the end.
    Hook Norton have their own pubs close, but I would also check out The Norman Knight in nearby Whichford (Warwickshire) which brews it's own real ale (using Hook Norton yeast) and does good food.

    I know a few other places but can't remember the names at the moment, will post back when I can.
