Welcome to the Gloucester Old Spot, allegedly the best pub in Cheltenham !


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.


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. What’s more, if you are dining in a party from Wednesday 27th November to Saturday 28th December 2019, we will be offering our Scottish influenced Christmas Menu !  Haggis, Arbroath Smokies, Highland Venison, Stornoway Black Pudding and more…
