The Old Spot Inn

Hill Road, DURSLEY, GL11 4JQ

This classic 18th-century free house is a former real ale pub of the year, so it's worth visiting to sample the regularly changing, tip-top real ales on handpump and to savour the cheerful buzzing atmosphere, as The Old Spot is a cracking community local. It sits smack on the Cotswold Way and was once three terraced farm cottages known as 'pig row.' It's apt, then that it should take its name from the Gloucestershire Old Spots pig. As well as organising three real ale festivals a year, landlord Steve Herbert organises a host of events, including brewery visits, cricket matches and celebrity chef nights. Devoid of modern-day intrusions, the rustic and traditional low-beamed bars are havens of peace, with just the comforting sound of crackling log fires and the hubbub of chatting locals filling the rambling little rooms. Food is wholesome and home made, ranging from ploughman's lunches and doorstep sandwiches to a pork and apple burger; haddock and chive fishcakes; or chicken fajitas. Puddings include treacle tart and white chocolate cheesecake. There's also a pretty garden for summer alfresco sipping.
