Very disappointing range (if that's the word) of ales, both with enormous carbon footprints. All the locals seem to be lager drinkers. Maybe some might be persuaded to try a decent local ale if one were on the bar.

Only 2 beers on a busy Friday Night. Very much a locals bar. Beers were Sharps Doombar which I avoided and Robinsons Dizzy Blonde. A half was ok but why nothing locally brewed?

The Volunteer Arms is one of the more basic pubs in Chipping Campden, tucked down one end of town, but don't let that stop you coming here. This is a good down-to-earth one room stone floor pub serving 1 real ale, "Volunteer Ale", brewed elsewhere, and with friendly bar staff and locals. Good for a few pints at good prices.

You wouldn't think The Indian restaurant behind the bar, the Maharaja, would be up to much but you couldn't be more wrong. The food is really very tasty with good spicing in almost every dish I tried. The starters were quite large and the unusual Keema Balti (curried minced lamb) was that tasty, what I couldn't finish I took back and ate for dinner the next night. Good food without overdoing the garlic. My usual guide to how good a restaurant is, the quality of its vegetable dishes, was spot on here - the Bhindi (Okra) was fresh and not overcooked as it always seems to be. Definitely worth a visit for the food - don't be put off by its location.

Didn't go here but ordered a takeaway from the attached Indian restaurant during my recent stay in Chipping Campden. Excellent food.

Stayed here for one night last month and it's grand. Room was functional but cheap and the beer/clientele were lovely.

Make sure you have a curry in the attached restaurant. I was a bit dubious, but man alive it was nice.
