We leave this Wednesday for 10 days in England, three of which will be spent in the Cotswolds. We bought a 'walks' book, but what we lack information on is Pubs. What are some great pubs and teahouses in the area?

The Cotswolds covers a very big area so you might need to narrow it down a bit. Mind you, just ask the hotels where you are staying for recommendations and they'll be sure to know where's worth a look.
My personal favourite places in the Cotswolds are Chipping Campden, Chipping Norton, Broadway and Bourton on the Water, but to be fair, it's all pretty lovely.

You won't have a problem finding a pub once you're there. Every village with a healthy sense of self-respect has a couple of them on the High Street.
Just in case you've never traveled in the UK: Remember, in a pub you order and pay at the bar. You'll normally find a number on your table... maybe a small brass plate on the corner. You tell the publican the number of the table when you order so that they'll know where to bring you your food.
In Broadway, go up to the tower. You'll be rewarded with a great view of the English countryside from the top. And there's a little museum inside.
Have a wonderful time!

Thanks for the input. My better half is actually from London, but has never been to the Cotswolds either, so we didn't realize the size (but have since purchased a "Walks" book, and will report back how good/accurate it was). We are renting a car in Bath and then staying for several days in Stowe-on-the-Wold.
And, right now, I have a flight to catch!
