“Excellent, could not be faulted!”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

Four of us dined here on a Saturday evening and we were all tremendously impressed with the food, atmosphere and service. The mushroom risotto was the best I have ever had and the desserts are delicious and fresh. The portion sizes are very generous but that being said the quality of the food is not at all compromised. It has to be one of the only places I have eaten at where I could tell that they really invest in quality ingredients and are not just out to make a profit on cheap food. Overall the experience was top notch, could not be faulted at all. (I would also say that booking is advisable at weekends as it can get very busy).

“First rate food with service to match”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

After trying pretty much every other pub/restaurant around the area,for my birthday my family opted for the Clothier Arms. Having driven by numerous times I've not really had the thought of trying before, it just seemed a pub that was maybe a locals & so wouldn't be that special, how wrong I was.
The place it's self is part pub with an extension restaurant at the back, though you can eat either side.
Although not amazingly inspiring the restaurant itself is very comfortable and clean. However what made the evening was the first class service and surprisingly good food. There is a substantial menu with the usual pub classics, though maybe short on vegetarian options, but the wife still found something she was very pleased with.
I had the beef n ale pie which had a beautiful rich filling, ones of those dishes where you go 'wow, wasn't expecting that'.
All the food was promptly delivered, hot and good portions too.
Chips, which are a good yard stick of any place, also seemed to be home made, seasoned & the best my daughter's tasted, and that's saying something!
Had just enough room to try a desert & again, very tasty & well presented.
There is obvious thought and effort gone into the food and also with the service, where you were made to feel very welcome & nothing was too much trouble. One of the few places I actually wanted to leave tip, if only all places could make the effort like this place.
Will definitely be back & have already recommended to others.

“Tip top 1ST Class pub . The number place to eat in Stroud.”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

I am never ever disappointed here. All the staff are wonderful. The food is always excellent . Whether you have the two for £12 meal deal or order from the bar menu. Sunday lunch I believe is one of the best in the county for a pub/ restaurant meal. There is always plenty of food. Booking is advisable on a Sunday :) all my family eat here and we keep coming back . If your in Stroud pop in . A great choice of ales too .
