Announcing the arrival of The Gloucestershire Food Pub.
We are delighted to announce the launch of its updated branding to identify itself as one of the leading pub venues in the South West. The Cheltenham freehouse is well known for its independent streak and commitment to traditional pub values has further evolved its product offer to encompass everything that is great about the Gloucestershire larder.
Working with renowned local producers the pub now sources nearly all food and drink from Gloucestershire and the three counties. Simon Daws proprietor since 2010 said “ food providence has always been fundamental to how we operate and the new image is a formalise evolution of what we have always done….championing the sublime products and skills of local farmers and drink producers.”
We trade with 2 local family owned butchers, our eggs travel 2 miles, dairy, flour, breads and ice creams are all sourced from small independent businesses. Of course a great choice of beer and cider is widely available and we continue to feature handmade cordials. A big leap for many customers will be buying English wine and Gloucestershire’s Three Choirs Vineyard are represented on our list” added Simon
Head Chef and fellow Director Shawn Bound added, “we want to showcase amazing local produce for the sake of both quality and support of the county’s economy, throw in the upside to the environment of food miles and it has to be the only way forwards” We ourselves employ local people and the snowball effect of spending money with independent local businesses will become an essential post-script to Brexit” Lets grow it locally, cook it locally, and enjoy it locally”
Simon and Shawn finished by hoisting Gloucestershire Severn Cross flag occupying pride of place outside the pub. “This represents our onward journey through localism and we will be adding more great artisan producers as the weeks and month pass”

We’ve just discovered this pub despite living in the area for years. The building is beautifully quirky. The food was delicious, the portions huge and the welcome very friendly. The kids food was especially impressive with the usual kids fare cooked to a very high standard (keeping my son happy) and the option of small portions from the adult menu suiting my more adventurous daughter. We will definitely be back soon
