Bespoke Brewery Wine Bar (2)bespoke brewery in mitcheldean

is a new and exciting addition to Mitcheldean, both brewing their own bitters and beers and having a vault like wine bar in the Mews, just off the high street.

It opens at 3.00pm on a Friday and so if you arrive at the house prior to official arrival time, you can get a coffee or a beer.

And if you want an informal bar to enjoy drinks on a Friday or Saturday evening, then it is a stone’s thrown from the house.

You can also pre-order kegs of their beer to be delivered to the house, prior to your weekend stay.

is a cracking country pub complete with open fire, cats and dogs and old fashioned board games.

And a good beer garden with wooden furniture and lots of wooden play equipment to keep kids happy.

Not forgetting great food for which people eagerly await opening time in the car park and some good beers and real ales too.

Pre-booking is essential on 01452 830477 and they have a private dining room if required for lunches or evening meals for large groups.

the farmers boy in longhope

a fantastic pub with ever increasingly good reviews.

Not content with improving the menu massively and making their own pies available through their Mad About Pies shop, they now also have a deli on site.

A huge garden too, so children can rampage around whilst you eat outside, and they are equally accepting of children inside the pub (maybe less of the rampaging though) .

The freshest fish is found here with the highest quality cuisine to be found anywhere.
Luxurious bedrooms – all en-suite and air-conditioned offer delightful views across the River Severn.

The Old Passage Inn is reached by driving up and around Gloucester and via the beautiful Frampton on Severn (longest remaining village green in the UK) , and down a very windy lane, but is well worth the drive.  We highly recommend it.
