The Mount Inn, Stanton
The Mount Inn stands on the mount at the end of the village of Stanton, one of the prettiest and idyllic unspoilt villages in the Cotswolds, a few miles from Broadway.

The pub's unique position provides the most spectacular panoramic views across the Vale of Evesham towards the Malvern Hills and even the Welsh Black Mountains beyond. On a summer's evening it is the most perfect spot to watch the sunset and enjoy a pint of Donnington Brewery's traditional ale.

Traditional beers

The 17th Century pub is one of the Donnington Brewery's beautiful tied houses, and alongside the brewery's traditional beers, The Mount offers a varied menu that serves to refresh the weary rambler, offer a quick bite for the locals or, if you prefer, the full three-course experience.

The Mount's excellent food is prepared freshly to order and uses locally sourced ingredients wherever possible. For the warmer months there is a large garden and terraced area for relaxing al fresco.

The pub provides a welcome pitstop for exploring the adjoining village of Stanway with its beautiful Jacobean Stanway House & gardens boasting the largest gravity-fed fountain in the world, in addition to the historic centres of Broadway and Winchcombe.

Great resting place

The Mount also provides a welcome sanctuary for outdoor enthusiasts. It is located on the Cotswold Way National Trail and Stanton is a favourite destination walk from Broadway and a serves as a great resting place after a long horse-riding hack available from the excellent stables in the village.  A large inglenook fire place awaits you where you can dry out and keep warm.

A range of pub games are on offer as well as good food and good beer.

The village inn was not always known as The Mount and has not always been a pub. The building was originally a farmhouse and later became a "cobbler shop", tea room and then an off-licence. 

'Princely sum'

"The Bank", as it was known in 1897, became under the ownership of Donnington Brewery when it was sold to Richard Arkell on 11th October for the princely sum of £604. 

In modern times, the reputation of this out-of-the-way inn for good company and good beer and amazing views has spread far and wide, yet it retains all its village friendliness, its ancient timbers steeped in 500 years of hospitality.
