Now serving our Autumn Gloucestershire Food menu, in a cosy and snug pub environment with 2 log fires, a 2 minute drive from the outskirts of Cheltenham.

Please read the following and share with your group..

All members of you party must arrive with a face mask as you will need to wear one when you are not at your table.

Government guidelines allow up to 6 people inside or outside from multiple households, but no greater than 6 unless they are from the same household/supportive bubble.  Please note: the ‘bubble’ is a household plus a single adult who lives alone.  That person can join a household to create a bubble of more than 6, but that is the only household they can ‘bubble’ up with.  So, for example your Grandmother might join your household of 6 and in that case 7 people can dine. In line with government track and trace system we are obliged to keep your contact details for 21days.

To ensure we are COVID secure we are asking that guests do the following:

Please do not visit us if you feel unwell or have any symptoms of the Corona Virus.

Please ensure you use sanitiser on arrival and continue to maintain regular hand washing/sanitising whilst you are here. 

Please do not arrive earlier than your booking time, this is so we can stagger arrivals. Please ensure you adhere to social distancing of 2m where possible and remain at your table during your visit other than to use the toilet facilities.

Please follow any queuing systems that we have in place, these are to protect you and our staff. The public bar is not open to customers but we will conduct table service.

We prefer to take card payments but can accept cash. Lastly we ask that you are patient with us, these new normal are going to take a bit of adjusting to for all of us. 

We will endeavour to make your pub experience as enjoyable and ‘normal’ as possible, whilst giving you full confidence that everything we have introduced in respect of the virus is there for everyone’s protection.




Awards  – If Britain’s best selling guide is to be believed The Gloucester Old Spot is the best pub in Cheltenham.  Or Gloucestershire and The Cotswolds for that matter, as we are the only pub in this ‘bible’ of the traditional pub world to have a STAR rating.  We also win their GOOD FOOD and REAL ALE awards too, and yes this guide is wholly independent.  So no need to take our word for it !

English Local Pub  – Nestled between Cheltenham and Tewkesbury, The Gloucester Old Spot is ideally located for those in search of a country pub, within a stone’s throw of town. We focus on serving great meals from fresh local ingredients whilst offering a variety of well-kept local ales, ciders and wines. We are proud of our small team of dedicated staff who work hard to provide a fantastic experience on every visit.

Freehouse   – The Old Spot is about an escape from the hustle and bustle of the outside world, a welcome return to nostalgia. As a freehouse we are owned by a local family who have run pubs in Cheltenham for 20 years.  There’s no brand or theme, just a lovely old pub where the heritage is celebrated and the food and drink are a passion. You can relax in our snug bar, Baronial Dining room or peaceful garden 7 days a week.
