This is our local pub but we rarely visit and I don’t really know why. We popped in for an early evening drink and headed out to the garden which was basking in sunshine with barely a table free. Lovely atmosphere and great staff.

I've only been once, but I don't think I've ever come across such a friendly pup. Fire on, strangers all chatting, not at all cliquey. Would have been easier to move out of Stroud if I'd know of this place's existence!

Popped in for a pint on my way home from the Stroud Fringe and although the pint was good the whole place smelled of damp dish rag. Not a good atmosphere.

Lovely little pub, serving really good selection of ales, beer and lagers. Friendly atmosphere and a bit of a Tardis really, as the garden out the back is pretty big. Food is available, though not the biggest menu in the world, it is still tasty....More

Our first visit on a cold Monday. Positives - good range of beers and well lit. Negatives - disengaged barman and a bit snooty. Cold room. Food bits on the tables. It's a fair attempt at a young and hip bar but in reality it...More
