Our History

Ian & Tina Blake welcome you to one of the most historical inns in the country.

Set in the heart of the beautiful Cotswolds, the 16th century Highwayman Inn has served the passing trade going north out of Cirencester on the old Ermin Way, A419, towards Gloucester since an inn was first recorded here in 1781.

For over nearly 250 years, carriages (like the one in our car park), coaches & cars have stopped off for good food & drink before carrying on their journey.

With its lovely cosy bar & dining room with patio doors leading out to a beer garden & patio, it's an inn for all seasons too!

For many we're also the ideal halfway house for meetings & family celebrations, so we can cater for all different types of events, whether it is for a small gathering or a larger occasion such as a wedding. 
Perfect location for touring the Cotswolds

With the Roman town of Cirencester just 3 miles away & on the way to Cheltenham, Gloucester & the M5, The Highwayman is a popular stop-off if you are visiting the Cotswolds.

We also have very good disabled access and facilities to accommodate wheelchairs + ultra-fast broadband wi-fi!

And - with well behaved owners - we're very dog friendly as well!
