At a glance

Bar menu
Beer festival

Close to Cheltenham’s famous racecourse, this 16th-century pub was once owned by England cricket legend Tom Graveney. Enjoy well-kept local cask ales, real ciders 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 pan-fried wood pigeon breast, and black pudding salad; baked ratatouille lasagne; and spiced roast lamb rump, fondant potato, sauté kale and ras el hanout seasoned tomato sauce. There is a beer and sausage festival on the Spring bank holiday and a cider festival on the Summer bank holiday.
