About the Pub

Up to five changing ales, generally from Butcombe, in this town centre pub, the oldest in Cheltenham and 'grade 2' listed, recently refurbished to a high standard and with dedicated twin darts area and new pool table. Terrestrial live sport is shown in the main bar for special events, which is complemented by smaller quieter drinking/eating areas. Food is available until 9pm. Recently bought by Butcombe Brewery so their beers prevail but occasionally a non Butcombe guest is sourced nationally.

Pub became a tenanted house from 7th November 2018 and closed briefly for re-vamp to become more restaurant orientated. It has now re-opened under new management as a more traditional pub rather than the recent 'Smokehouse' identity.
