Well worth a visit for a decent,well kept pint.Uley Old Spot and Moley were perfect!Landlord is a real character.Menu is probably not vegetarian friendly,but good portions and tasty.Pub deserves to be supported,so any trip down the M4,call in.Large open fire on cold winters days.

The Majors Retreat is an old Cotswold stone pub, situated about a mile from the M4 J18 towards Stroud and makes a very good alternative for lunch to the M4 services. The bar area has a bit of a quirky feel being a traditional oaked beamed with a large stone fireplace, an old style décor and a collection of different style tables and seating. Then the door to the right of the bar leads to a large oak panelled dining room.
The food and beer has been good in the past and there is usually some local real ales on offer. Our recent visit was to pull off the motorway for Sunday lunch, which was plain but fairly wholesome roast. And the four beers available were Draft Bass and Sharps Doombar, but these were then complimented by Moles Brewery Tap and Uley Brewery Pigs Ear, both of which were well kept.
There is also a large garden and plenty of car parking spaces, and as mentioned, its closeness to the M4 makes The Majors Retreat a recommended stop for good food and good beer.

Recently changed from The Portcullis Inn to The Major's Retreat to differentiate it from a pub of the same name nearby.
