Butcombe brewery pub with a countryside vibe located not that far from Cheltenham racecourse. 3 real ales on during my visit.

The pub has the look of a countryside local,yet it is situated in a smart northern suburb of Cheltenham near the racecourse.The entrance opens on two doors,restaurant right ,bar left.We weren't eating so into the bar it was,with it's polished wood floor,wooden clad bar,fitted bench seating and some low cross beams.A wood burner stool opposite the bar,it felt smart but traditional with no tv,muzak,machine distractions.Horse brasses completed the rustic feel.
There were 5 handpumps drawing TT Landlord,Severn Vale Luverley Jub'lee,Salopian Oracle,fff Citra Sonic (on good form) and Thatchers Heritage Cider.A decent selection.A board described the lunchtime specials with mains ranging from £9-£12,so I guess you can eat in the bar if you wish.Another board described future events at the pub,an acoustic night,cider & cheese festival,Belgian night so this pub is more than a food orientated establishment,a local atmosphere is generated.
Worthy of it's GBG listing,I would definitely revisit and maybe try the food as well next time.

Really pleasant Cotswold stone pub in the village of Prestbury just north of Cheltenham, which is well described by John below, and nothing additional to add for the description of the pub.
As we were staying in the north of Cheltenham we decided to do a circular walk through Pittville Park to the pump room, and then along into Prestbury to take this one in as a half way stop before returning to the east side of Cheltenham and it was a great way to spend a couple of hours.
As described it is very much a food led pub with a menu which firmly sits above standard pub fare in the restaurant bracket, for which it scores highly on trip advisor. And, apart from a couple of old boys in the snug and us two out in the garden, everyone else had come to eat.
But we had dropped in for the beer and in this respect we were not disappointed.
Four ale pumps and one additional for Thatchers Heritage cider and the ales on were Salopian Oracle, TT Landlord, Dickensian Brewery Martin Guzzlewit and one named after pub landlord Robin Carter which apparently is his first beer released under his newly-founded Tivoli Beer Company, which he hopes to develop into a micro-brewery, but is currently brewed by one of the local Cheltenham breweries although I’m not sure which one.
We tried them all whilst here and they were all in good condition , and the Landlords own pint was a decent golden ale and a good session beer if we had had time to stay around and have more.
