The Experience

At the side of the long road that takes you into Tetbury sits this country inn with its whitewashed exterior hiding more secrets than you can shake a stick at. Owners Pete and Tor have worked a special magic here. Whether it’s building more stylish glamping chalets in the big field at the back, creating a covered beer garden draped in fairy lights, or pressing their own apples for cider and juice, they have a way with food, drink and atmosphere which would be the envy of many a new pub entrepreneur. Their hands-on approach means the little inn buzzes with happy locals and nature lovers who’ve popped in for a pint or a Sunday roast after exploring nearby Westonbirt Arboretum. The chefs serve up tasty classics and treats using homegrown produce from the garden. Upstairs, find six cosy bedrooms with crisp white linens, colourful cushions and exposed beams, or choose from one of the bell tents, a spot on the campsite or one of the new en-suite chalets.

Proper old English pub rejuvenated into a warm and friendly place with incredible home cooked food packed with flavour and sourced with care. The home brewed beers are exceptional and the Home pressed apple juice sold for £4 a 75cl bottle is perfect for the table for non-drinkers. Why can’t all Sunday Roasts be this delicious? Fabulous attention to detail on the flavours of each component of the roast. From roasties to cauliflower cheese to slow roasted carrots mashed in cider to the 24 hour reduced gravy and home reared free range pork. It’s a triumph. Love it!

This is a treasure of a place - a lovely beer garden with wood-fried pizza oven and a stage for live music. So much fruit and veg is grown here - it's inspiring - and it's all used in the yummy food. Glamp in the garden, shack up in shacks or B&B rooms upstairs - they're all bright, funky and fun. Pete and Tor put so much into this place and it's as warm and welcoming as they are.

Had a wonderful dinner here after a beautiful walk around Westonbirt. Best beef burger I've had for ages served with delicious bacon jam! Large garden, beautiful interior and great atmosphere!

Stopped off at the last minute after the motorways decided not to cooperate with Plan A of getting home. Very helpful and friendly on the phone, we were reassured of finding a place to sleep for the night! Walked in to find a bar full of friendly locals, smiles and warmth. Beautiful room under the eaves all ready and waiting for tired-us, complete with tea and coffee. Dinner was wonderful, everything freshly cooked, delicious, and served with a smile. Cider full of flavour, although at the end of Dry January, a single pint was enough! :-) We would very happily return. A lot.

Local points of interest from Pete Heathcock

  • The National Arboretum at Westonbirt is just a stone's throw from the pub. One of the finest tree collections in the world spread over approximately 600 acres, the arboretum is a fantastic day out for the entire family.
  • As Highgrove is just two minutes from the pub, we are the perfect place to stay if you wish to enjoy the Royal gardens. Having taken over 35 years in the making they are now considered some of the most creative and inspiring in the UK.
  • The historic market town of Tetbury is a perfect place to spend an afternoon. Famous for its extensive range of antique shops, now boasting a wealth of stylish boutiques, charming cafes and the ever popular Highgrove shop.
  • Situated within 30 minutes of Bath, Bristol, Cheltenham and a whole host of beautiful Cotswold towns and villages. The Holford Arms has great links to the M4 and M5, making getting to and exploring from effortless.
  • If you are feeling more adventurous the Holford Arms also offers an exceptional camping/glamping experience within our 8 acres of beautiful orchards, small holding and vegetable gardens.
  • Blessed with many spectacular walks minutes from the pub, including the great variety of National Trust rambles and the 102 mile long Cotswold Way from Bath to Chipping Camden. This wonderful area has so much to offer.
