About the Pub

Overlooking the River Severn, this is a completely unspoiled, no-frills rural pub. The interior consists of a tiny drinking area in front of a servery which dates from Victorian times and It is here you will find a loyal band of locals drinking and chatting to the licensee about all things local and beyond. On the left is a separate room with a genuinely old flagstone floor, large curved high-backed settle, large stone fireplace with a log burner, a piano (which is still played occasionally) and a hatch to the side of the servery. This is one of a fast disappearing type of pub offering the essentials of good conversation and good beer - there is no food, no TV, no pool table, no fruit machine (and piped music is at a very low level). The pub is on CAMRA's National Inventory of Historic Pub Interiors.

This pub closes each winter and re-opens in mid-March. The hours are 7-10pm plus 12-2 on Sat, Sun and Bank Holidays. The pub is on a working farm and is open when the gate is open so please do not attempt to visit the pub if the gate is closed.

Regrettably the Berkeley Arms may have closed for good. It has not reopened since the Covid-19 restrictions have been relaxed and it is thought that the closure may be permanent.
