If you don’t fancy a pub though, below are just a few of the other places to eat in Chipping Campden and the local area. We have listed four places to eat and drink but, as you will discover, there are many other great places to eat that are just a short drive away. Most are dog friendly in the beer gardens and bars but it is definitely worth checking ahead if you’ve got your pooch with you.
Many of these places are small with limited seating too, and so we recommend booking ahead at popular times – especially on a Sunday lunchtime if you want a good Sunday roast!
