The Old Spot Inn

Hill Road, DURSLEY, GL11 4JQ

This classic 18th-century free house is a real ale champion, so it's worth a visit to sample the tip-top brews on handpump, and to savour the cheerful buzzing atmosphere. It sits smack on the Cotswold Way, and is formed from three terraced farm cottages known as 'pig row'. It's apt, then, that it should derive its name from the Gloucester Old Spots pig. Ale festivals are held in May and October. The one in May also showcases ciders, and fans of fermented apple juice will always find an excellent selection at the bar. 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. Wholesome and home-made fodder ranges from jacket potatoes to Moroccan lamb tagine with couscous; puddings include traditional deep-filled apple pie.
