Real Ale Ray left this review about Tailors

An attractive looking pub that draws you in, especially when it's lit up in the evening. The pub from the outside looks to have once been a residential property at some point, instead of a purpose built pub. The interior to me seems to be split into tWo main areas. The front of the pub has a comfortable lounge area and front bar, certain sections were wallpapered and paint colours were in keeping with the heritage of the building. The rear section of the pub was a little more rowdy on our Friday night, with a group of lads engrossed in some screened sports match.
Six pumps along the front bar with five on, all of which were from Wadworth, so we settled on a couple of halves of Golden Haze, as we're not big Wadworth fans.

A very attractive looking, stone built pub just off of the High Street, it is covered with ivy on the outside and has a pleasant looking terrace with fairly lights and so on at the front. It was therefore a little disappointing to get inside and find that instead of a cosy old inn, it was in fact rather bland and generic in style and even had something of a sports bar feel to it with numerous plasma and projector screens dotted around showing the horse racing.

It’s a single, open plan interior with the large room wrapped around a central island bar counter. A couple of raised seating areas break up the space somewhat, but there is little of any note other than a few stained glass panels in the window. Flooring was sanded wooden boards, whilst the colour scheme was the usual shades of Farrow & Ball brown along with some duck egg blue. A small tiled fireplace was off to one side, and there were some old black and white prints on the wall.

There was a good choice of beers on tap, although all but one were from Wadworths with their 6X, Bishop’s Tipple, IPA, Horizon & Cooper’s Vice. These were joined by Yeovil’s Ruby. Ciders meanwhile were Thatcher’s Gold, Strongbow and Strongbow Dark Fruit.

Despite its full name, Taylors Eating House is a Wadsworths pub, rather than a restaurant. It is situated on the very pleasant pedestrianised area in the heart of Cheltenham town centre. It has a fantastic creeper clad exterior, but the interior, although pleasant enough, being dark wood with comfortable seating areas with sofa’s and chairs and several screens for the sport, just didn’t live up to the exterior for me.
What didn’t help also was that on arriving at the bar, the four real ale hand pumps were all reverse clipped apart from a solitary 6X which was all that was available, and that was average at best. And as the harassed staff were run off their feet with food orders I didn’t bother to enquire why the Henrys IPA, Swordfish and Horizon Golden Ale were not replaced on the mid-afternoon of the first bank holiday in May, which was a glorious day and they should have been shifting tons of the stuff.
There is also apparently a downstairs bar which is popular with students. But on a fine weather day like the one we were blessed with the big advantage of this pub is the outside seating area which protrudes out into the pedestrian walkway. The first section inside the iron railings has large umbrellas equipped with heaters for the evenings, and then the section beyond in the pedestrian area has wicker tables and chairs under standard pub umbrellas.
And according to a blue plaque on the pub wall, Sir Benjamin Baker a famous local civil engineer lived in a farm cottage on the site.
Food menu is mainly fried stuff with burgers and chips dominating. And amusingly the non-fried items seemed to just be salads which were on the menu under a section called Healthy options, which seemed to be recognition that most of the other options were unhealthy.
This was actually a very pleasant place to sit and have an alfresco pint. I just caught it on a day when it was suffering from poor bar management.
