Our View

Just before a tree-lined stream called Oldbury Pill enters the Severn Estuary is the stone-built Anchor, its more recent near-500-year-old history recalled in old photos and fishing and farming bric à brac. The bar line-up includes guest real ales, Ashton ciders, perries and 16 wines by the glass. Doors from the light, bright dining room lead out to a beautiful garden. On the good-value bar and main menu are baked lasagne; Kashmiri lamb curry; Spanish fish stew; chicken and ham pie and butternut squash, red onion and cranberry tagine.

About the area

Discover Gloucestershire

Gloucestershire is home to a variety of landscapes. The Cotswolds, a region of gentle hills, valleys and gem-like villages, roll through the county. To their west is the Severn Plain, watered by Britain’s longest river, and characterised by orchards and farms marked out by hedgerows that blaze with mayflower in the spring, and beyond the Severn are the Forest of Dean and the Wye Valley.

Throughout the county you are never far away from the past. Neolithic burial chambers are widespread, and so too are the remains of Roman villas, many of which retain the fine mosaic work produced by Cirencester workshops. There are several examples of Saxon building, while in the Stroud valleys abandoned mills and canals are the mark left by the Industrial Revolution. Gloucestershire has always been known for its abbeys, but most of them have disappeared or lie in ruins. However, few counties can equal the churches that remain here. These are many and diverse, from the ‘wool’ churches in Chipping Campden and Northleach, to the cathedral at Gloucester, the abbey church at Tewkesbury or remote St Mary’s, standing alone near Dymock.
