Impressive looking (half-timbered Tudor three storey building) and obviously aged from the outside, this multi-room Sam's outlet has obviously been refurbed recently and although done sympathetically it did feel quite ‘new’. A quasi gentlemen's club feel inside with a large (if characterless) courtyard beer garden. The usual plethora of Tadcaster labelled produce including cask OBB (in so-so nick). To the rear is a large barren courtyard. It’s a decent addition to a Gloucester crawl for the novelty value.

I remember visiting this place when it used to be called The Golden Cross, it was a very different place then - a favourite student haunt. Since those times, the pub has undergone a splendid restoration, I can't believe that my partner and I have only just rediscovered the place.
The food is very tasty and well presented, we intend to try every dish on the menu if we can. Every visit to Robert Raikes House is a special treat and I can't wait for the next one.

Very impressive building, beautifully restored by Sam Smiths with quite a bit of money being donated by the National Trust. It's a bit like wandering through a museum and it was just as quiet. We called in on a Thursday evening around 8 and it was dead as a post. I had a pint of the bitter and it was well over £2, that makes it the most expensive pint of Sam Smiths I've ever had. Admittedly it's still very cheap for central Gloucester. We sat down in the front room and watched the world go by, they certainly went by rather than stopped off though. We finished our drinks and went across the road to Cafe Rene which was packed and where the beer is over £3 a pint. I don't know what that proves, but a pub needs some atmosphere to get the punters in and this place just didn't have any.
