5 Things to do in the Cotswolds this July | Weekender June 28th

Friday has arrived friends, and July is just around the corner. So, if you are not stuck in some noisy, muddy fields in Somerset this weekend here are just a few (of many) things going on at the pub and around the Cotswolds, in the coming weeks.

Dom in the news

In case you haven’t heard, our landlord Dominic has been featured in SoGlos Magazine giving his expert insight into curating your own collection of gins and how you can convert a gin-hater into a gin lover. Read the full interview here.


It’s that time of the year again. Wimbledon starts on the first of July and, yes, we will indeed be showing all the games. So, come on down grab yourself a GnT or a Pimms and try to restrain yourself from ironically shouting “Come on, Tim!”.

Summer Party

Our summer party is fast approaching, so be sure to save the date. Taking place from the 26th of July until the 28th, our yearly summer bash is the absolute highlight of the Maytime calendar. There will be live music and an ale and cider festival on all dates, as well as unique attractions each day including a hog roast and BBQ. We also, without sounding too smug, think we have got the perfect ratio of marquee coverage in the garden, meaning that there’s plenty of coverage if it rains, but plenty of space to relax in the sun if we’re blessed by the sky gods.

Handmade Oxford

Handmade Oxford grants the opportunity to browse, shop and generally peruse the wares of over 250 exhibitors. Expect everything from fine art and sculpture to artisan foods and drinks. Taking place this weekend at Waterperry Gardens, it’s conveniently located just 35 minutes from the pub.

Vince Freeman

Finally, don’t forget that we have the tremendous Vince Freeman, performing once again for us on Sunday the 7th of July from 3pm. Vince is an absolute favourite of the Maytime regulars, and with his voice being described as “Awesome, awesome, awesome!” by Will.I.Am it is perhaps not surprising.
