Old Spot Inn
Set in a small town on the edge of the Gloucestershire hills, this pub started life in the 18th century as a farm cottage and still retains much of its earthy charm today.
It was refurbished and extended in 1997 and has the look of a little museum with all the 'olde worlde' memorabilia around the walls. There are two distinct bar areas though there are many different drinking areas as the partition walls have only been half removed in height in places. Seating is bench seats around some windows and walls and around the real fireplace. There are also wooden tables and chairs. It can get busy of an evening and service at the bar is slow at times because of this. Staff are friendly though and try to help if they can, though it can get very busy here, especially during their annual beer festival. Not all beers are on at the same time, so be warned.
There's no music here so conversation is possible. Now that all pubs are no smoking you can sit anywhere in this pub and have a great experience.
Real ale is served here by the plenty. On at the time were: Bath SPA; Uley Old Ric, Old Spot; Coach House Dick Turpin; Northumberland Duke of Northumberland Premium Ale.
Food (traditional, good quality) is served Mon-Thu 12-8pm, Fri-Sun 12-4pm.
For the summer there is a beer garden and a public car park across the road.
The bus station is at the back too.
Access for the disabled is not easy with many nooks and crannies to negotiate.
No accommodation here.
