Stunning conversion of a former courthouse on two levels with a fine choice of drinks and food and a genuine welcome

Brunning & Price have cleverly converted this rather grand, Italianate-style former courthouse into a lovely two-storey pub. On the ground floor, what was the waiting room is now a big bar with cushioned wooden dining chairs around dark tables on rugs or parquet flooring, a central group of high chairs around equally high tables, a long, green leather button-back banquette stretching down one wall, lots of paintings and armchairs in front of open fires; background music and board games. Friendly young staff serve Phoenix Brunning & Price Original, Cotswold Lion Best in Show, Gloucester Session IPA, Hillside Over The Hill, Timothy Taylors Landlord and Wye Valley Butty Bach on handpump, good wines by the glass, 60 malt whiskies and over 90 gins. Leading off here are two small dining rooms with more open fires: one with blue décor and tartan-upholstered chairs and the other with lots of horse-racing prints and a dark red button-back leather wall banquette. At the top of the stairs, passing under vast chandelier to get to courtroom, is the handsome main courtroom. The raised, panelled seating area, largely unaltered, is surrounded by paintings of judges and looks down on a dining room with elegant marble pillars, leather chairs and wall seats, more paintings, an open fire and a second bar counter. Throughout are the group's trademark bookshelves, house plants and church candles. Outside, a few tables and chairs line the front pavement.
