Interestingly furnished country pub with much character, good ales and likeable food

You'll get a warm welcome from helpful, friendly staff here and the place manages to retain the feel of a country local, despite being close to Cheltenham. The quarry-tiled beamed bar has chapel chairs and other seats around assorted tables (including one in a bow-windowed alcove) and opens into a lighter, partly panelled area with cushioned settles and stripped kitchen tables. Purity Mad Goose, Timothy Taylors Landlord and Wye Valley HPA on handpump, eight decent wines by the glass and four farm ciders including their own-brand medium sweet perry are served by young, friendly staff. Decoration is in unobtrusive good taste, with winter log fires. A handsome baronial-style separate dining room (once a hunting lodge to nearby Boddington Manor) has similar country furniture, high stripped-brick walls, dark flagstones and candlelight; background music. Outside, there are chunky benches and tables under parasols on a terrace, with some oak barrel tables on brickwork and pretty flowers in vintage buckets and baskets; heaters for cooler weather and a new smoker for smoked meats, fish and other treats. They hope to develop hook-ups for motorhomes.
