Covid 19 – UPDATE. The pub remains fully closed until further notice.  We desperately miss our colleagues and customers and want to get back to serving you asap.   We hope to return bigger and better than ever….






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




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.
