We regularly frequent at the tudor arms and are always happy with the quality of food and variety of different ciders and seasonal good food on offer. Very friendly staff and brilliant atmosphere. Great to stop off for a bite to eat any time of day

We love the range and quality of food at the Tudor Arms. Very dog friendly and lovely staff. There are always a number of vegetarian options available, and the discounted early evening menu is great value. A good range of well looked after real ales make it treat for something different.
Lots of space to sit in the dining area, even with the dog, and a large outside area for smokers or just to get some fresh air. Location next to the canal and a short walk from Slimbridge Wetlands centre is fantastic.
My only gripe is that the locals tend to congregate around the till which sometimes means customers struggle to reach the counter to order or pay for their food. The conversation is often a little coarse around the bar which is off putting for more gentile visitors. Perhaps a rule that locals keep the area around the till clear would be all that is needed.
Overall, a great pub (known locally as 'The Patch' if you get confused).

Booked 2 double rooms at the Tudor Arms Lodge after reading recommendations on Trip Advisor. They have got it exactly right - We were not disappointed at all. The Lodge is an annexe to the pub which makes it a quieter place to sleep. The rooms were lovely with fabulous wooden furniture, comfortable sofas and memory foam beds. Everything you need is in the room, hot drinks by way of a refreshment tray and kettle, bottled water, toiletries, hot towels, hair dryer, slippers and clock. We ate in the restaurant on both evenings, the food was good and a reasonable price, accompanied by real ale beer. Breakfast again provided everything you could want. A lovely setting and only 15 minutes walk from the wetland which was our reason for staying. (We didn't need to use the car). A long way to go from York but hope we can go again possibly for a longer visit. Thank you.

We visited two years ago and were very impressed. We returned again this April and were pleased to find that it is still very good value for money, with young, friendly, helpful and professional staff. The rooms are excellent, the beds very comfortable and there is plenty of hot water for a bath or shower. Nice touch to add complimentary toiletries, too, as well as a kettle and tea/coffee supplies. Excellent walk to the WWT centre. The pub is clearly popular and very busy, but the BB accommodation is beside it, and therefore quiet and tranquil. Lovely to have fresh fruit salad for breakfast, but as somebody who never eats a cooked breakfast, it would have perhaps been nice to have better quality coffee and bread, but I recognise I am in a minority here. Would definitely recommend it.

Room Tip: Room 5 had two windows. A blackbird sang every evening beside the corner one!

This is clearly a very popular place, both with visitors and locals, but our room was an oasis of peace and quiet. The rooms are in an attractive annexe, with very comfortable beds and lovely wooden furniture (which I wouldn't mind at home!)
We enjoyed two excellent evening meals,and breakfast was also of a high standard. As the pub is so popular, it became very lively in the evenings, and we struggled to find a quiet spot, but this is only a minor niggle.
The main reason for visiting was the Slimbridge Wildlife and Wetlands Centre, only a 10 minute walk from the Tudor Arms, and there are also good walks along the nearby canal. We hope to visit again.

Room Tip: Our room was on the ground floor so was very convenient. There was only a view of a wooden fence bu...

Found by chance as we wanted to visit Slimbridge. Since then have visited several times. Rooms of very highest standard; cannot be faulted. Very friendly service and good food. Main building apparently old, but modernised very unsympathetically. Plastic replacement windows, brick pattern wallpaper, bric a brac from a car boot sale and overall beige theme. Such a shame! Interesting skittle alley.Clearly caters for huge numbers, including caravans, in summer. Very close to canal - beautiful walks in both directions. If visiting Slimbridge, suggest leave your car in car park and walk the10 minutes down the road so you can admire the medieval farm landscape.

Was travelling for work and needed somewhere to stay in Gloucester area. Tudor arms was accommodating, friendly and comfortable. Easy place to stay on your own as they look after you. Would happily go back, and hopefully visit Wildfowl and wetlands Trust.
