We ate here on a busy Good Friday evening -great atmosphere in the pub. The Belly Pork was top quality, cooked to perfection, not dry and minimal fat for the cut. Good, smart pub food menu with local produce, very friendly and helpful service (brilliant when I rang to book as well), I grew up nearby to the Exchange but... More

This was very convenient for the B&B my daughter and I were staying at, and for Hartpury College where we were competing at a dressage competition. Very friendly service (if a little hurried as they were so busy). The focus took a while to come, but it was very good. An unusually good choice of dishes for vegetarians. It felt... More

Headed out to meet a friend at another pub locally but having pulled into the car park decided it wasn't for me. As I was driving back towards another place I had passed I spotted this little unassuming pub opposite a junction in hartpury. It looked inviting enough so decided to go for it. Good menu, friendly staff, nice ales,... More

Group of 10 senior citizens booked for lunch time. Pre order given, and table booked for 12.15pm. We arrived at mid day, were shown to our table. Staff very tentative but not overbearing. Drink order taken, and prompt delivery of drinks and meal. Which I Must say was outstanding. Will visit again in summer as the patio area was very... More

Booked a table for lunch with my mother aged 92 so wanted to make sure it all went well. Access was an important factor for me, as mum not so quick on her pins these days. The staff rang me the day before to check my special requirements. We were allocated a perfect table. The food and service was excellent.... More

Top class gastro pub. There's not many places with as beautiful a view + quality service + food in Gloucester. Would highly recommend this place to anyone.

Hi Gary, I’m not really sure what you mean about knowing Prada from Primark, but I can only apologise if you felt uncomfortable walking into the pub. I trust you were greeted politely by a member of staff? More
