Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Walked down the river from Tewkesbury - The Coalhouse Inn was a lovely place to end up. We had tea and snacks which were great - recommend the Whitebait. The real bonus were the proprietors who were amazingly friendly and helpful. Will definitely be back...- I think they have places to stay so that might be next :) Recommended…More

Lunches available Tues-Sun 12noon to 2.30pm at this lovely old pub with a warm welcome every time. We visited twice during our holiday. Firstly by chance on Sunday as we walked the footpath alongside the River Severn. The very tasty beef roast served with yorkshire...puds, roast potatoes, and a generous selection of vegetables with the tastiest thick gravy, and bottles of cider too - easier to keep with longer shelf life in these times of austerity 👍 Our second lunch visit was planned as we returned from the Haw Bridge walking along the picturesque footpath. We very much enjoyed thickly sliced ham, eggs and chips with salad, and tuna mayonnaise baguette with chips and salad - and more cider 😋More

This place is certainly well hidden, down a no-through road from Apperley, and no obvious signs to get you there. At the end of the track you get to a caravan park and you can also make out the river Severn. We went on a...sunny Saturday lunchtime and everyone was sat outside in the garden. There were 4 tables of people and so the landlady was rushed off her feet so service took a while. No draught beer so it was a selection of bottles to choose from and the baguettes were perhaps a little pricey but obviously fresh and tasty too. Entertainment, apart from the landlady, came in the form of the many animals (ducks, chickens, doves, etc.) in the farmyard plus the shetland pony with the sharp teeth (or at least that's what it said on the sign). Certainly a quiet spot and enjoyable to sit in the sunny garden but a bit of a trek just for bottled beer.More

Service is brilliant, not in your face constantly but aware when needed. The food was outstanding. Hubby had steak and fries with an amazing peppercorn sauce. I had the butterflied chicken with chorizo. Both meals were succulent and the veg ordered to accompany our food...was excellentMore

We have visited this pub several times pre pandemic and found it excellent. However our visit tonight was not so good. Nobody was at the bar so we had to wait for 10 minutes before anyone turned up to serve us. All the draught beers...and ciders were unavailable so we had to have bottled beer. I asked for Bulmers but was served Magners. We sat in the garden which seemed to be inhabited by screaming kids and their screaming parents. It was not a pleasant experience. I appreciate that thengs can go wrong but we were given no explanation why there were no draught beers.More

Today i had the privilege of meeting the absolute legend of a man - Steve. The pub itself has a gorgeous atmosphere, beautiful river scenery and incredible hospitality. Steve introduced us to Dodger, the best pub pony we've seen, and throughout our visit there, we've...never felt more welcome! If you ever need a place to relax, have a lovely drink and the highest quality of food, this place is the place for you. Cant praise Steve enough for the astonishing service hes provided, definitely returning any time i need some pub time!More

Hopefully this place will improve over time. To be fair it was relatively inexpensive. Food was OK. Wouldn't rush back..

Popped in for a quick drink and was shocked to hear a small wine had cost £7.30 especially as was clearly aldi bought produce . Overheard conversation to another couple that food offering was either a beef roast dinner or maybe they could get a...baguette out of freezer . Shame the place could be so much more .More

Great welcome and service - but not fully open, which surprised us for October 2021. However, we got some lovely beer and cider and sat in the garden....just before the rain came down. Inside looked like a nice place to eat and was laid up...looking good. Hope they fully reopen soon.More

Went here last Friday lunchtime and I can honestly say the pub was like something that time forgot! The garden was covered in bird feathers and everything was just very grubby but what surprised me the most was there were no food menus just a...blackboard, however no prices. We ordered 2 baguettes and 2 lime and sodas it wasn’t until I checked my online banking that I realised we’d been charged £26 which in my opinion was well over the top for what we received.More

0 Votes Sunday. 12.00 until 3pm. Best to phone the pub in advance. You will need to book at least 1 to 2 weeks in advance, especially in the summer months to avoid disappointment. 0 seconds ago
