The Yew Tree


On the slopes of National Trust's May Hill, Gloucestershire's highest point, from where you can see the Welsh mountains, the Malvern Hills and the River Severn, you will find this former cider press tucked away down a little lane. The pub has a quarry-tiled floor and winter log fires, and offers a good choice of local real ales from breweries like Wye Valley and Cotswold Spring, and ciders from Lyne Down and Three Choirs. As for the food, the emphasis is on tasty home cooking using seasonal local produce, with daily-changing menus and specials. Starters could include rustic pork terrine with crusty bread, or goats' cheese with rosemary crostini. For a main course, think about rump of Welsh lamb with dauphinoise potatoes, or perhaps Gloucester Old Spots loin steaks. Home-made desserts include fresh pineapple crumble. Time a visit for the October beer and cider festival.
