Blackthorn _ left this review about Old Elm

A substantial and imposing brick built pub in the centre of what was presumably at one time a village, but is now more or less a suburb of Gloucester, it consists of a number of different rooms internally, as well as gardens at both the front and rear, a large car park and accommodation.

The main bar area is to the right of the pub, and this was a large room with varnished wooden boards around the floor and a fitted black carpet in the middle. Paintwork was mostly a shade of pale brown with a feature wall in deep salmon at one end, whilst cream wood panelling was on the lower part of the walls. A large black and white photograph of the old village covered much of the end wall, whilst there were a number of smaller photographs dotted around of the pub and it’s customers. A large pile of board games were piled up on a table in the corner and a board advertised various events such as a pub quiz. The central bar was a little smaller and cosier and this had sanded wooden boards on the floor, grey wood panelling on the lower part of the walls and the bar counter, and a small brick fireplace at one end. A pile of books were on the window sill and numerous beer mats tacked to the beams suggested an ever changing beer selection. A sign advertised BT and Sky Sports and a rolled up projector screen was above the chimney breast. A further room to the left was fully carpeted and looked as though it may be more intended for dining.

The menu looked to offer a decent enough selection of “pub grub” dishes such as fish & chips, a couple of pies, sausage & mash, casseroles and so on, and these were mostly priced around the £10 mark.

Beers on tap were Sharp’s Atlantic, Doom Bar, Tribute, Wickwar Bob and Stroud’s Tom Long, whilst a pump for Ruddles Best appeared to have run out. Ciders too were well represented with Old Rosie, Stowford Press, Thatcher’s Gold and Strongbow Dark Fruit.
