The Golden Heart

Nettleton Bottom, BIRDLIP, GL4 8LA

A traditional 17th-century Cotswold-stone inn that was once a drovers' resting place, this lovely pub boasts stunning views of the valley from the terraced gardens. The main bar is divided into four cosy areas with log fires and traditional built-in settles. Excellent local ales and ciders are backed by a good selection of wines, while the extensive menus demonstrate commitment to local produce, particularly prize-winning meat from the region. Perhaps try Gloucester Old Spots sausages with mash and onion gravy; wild boar and apple burger; or Thai king prawn curry. The more adventurous should aim for kangaroo steak marinated in chilli and honey glaze. A good range of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options are available.
