We will be closed from Nov 4th re-opening on Thurs 3rd December

You can still book tables by email, which we will check and respond to daily throughout the lockdown period.  As a small family run business we are hoping guests will book forwards throughout the winter months and support us.  In addition buying GIFT VOUCHERS from us this Christmas is both a great way of supporting your local and giving an indulgent gift to a loved one, friend or employee…..let’s face it there are probably no Office Parties this year ??  They come in multiples of £10 and £25….please email us and we will post them out, or you can collect them after 03 December….

Stay safe, this pandemic will never beat us and will will return and thrive, with your help.

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.
