Our View

Close to Cheltenham’s famous racecourse, this 16th-century pub was once owned by England cricket legend Tom Graveney. Enjoy well-kept cask ales and delicious food in the snug, the comfortable dining room or the heated patio overlooking a pretty beer garden. Menus and blackboard specials might list grilled rainbow trout with Asian vegetable broth; roast lamb chump with mustard and rosemary crust; and a spicy chickpea burger. There is a beer and sausage festival on the Spring bank holiday and a cider festival on the Summer bank holiday.

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.
