Title: The best of Cheltenham Town (IMHO)
Creator: Steve of N21

For a regency Spa Town with fantastic period architecture Cheltenham is a bit of a disappointment as far as pubs go. There is no real historical Inns of character and, although the ale drinker will not go thirsty as most pubs in the centre support real ale and the Tied houses are dominated by Arkells and Wadsworths, which could be a lot worse, there's not many that could be recommended for character or beer choice to go out of your way for. But these are the few I could recommend which basically is only one in each of the four compass points... N / S /E /W..

Switch to route map:


Adam & Eve (1)
Arkels house of some period character, and although I didn't get to visit indication is that a recent refurb hasn't ruined it and it is still worth the diversion to visit
The Jolly Brewmaster (2)
the local CAMRA Pub of the Year and runner-up 2012 South West Regional Cider Pub of the Year, . The bar supports 7 hand pumps which feature a regularly changing range of ales from Gloucestershire and beyond.
Cheltenham Motor Club (3)
The local Gloucester CAMRA club of the year for 2006-2012 and South West regional finalist on five occasions and now, in 2013, awarded The National CAMRA Club of the Year
Sandford Park Alehouse (4)
This Craft and Cask beer house is a recent addition to the Cheltenham pub scene. The bar area supports Ten pumps with nine real ales and a local Cider on the bar , 16 taps for lagers and craft beers on the wall behind the bar.
Kemble Brewery Inn (5)
Traditional back street local with six regularily changing beers. Fitted like a well worn pair of slippers for a maturing ale codger like me..
