Real Ale Ray left this review about The Strand

A modern style pub which comprised of an L shaped lounge with a green tiled fronted bar situated along the far left hand wall as you entered. Other internal features was the undressed brick wall, deep French blue walls and woodwork, a large mural painted wall and copper coloured painted cornice and black painted boarded floor.
Six handpumps with four in use, one of which was designated to Happy Daze cider, two from Stroud and a Butcombe. We went for the Stroud Budding and Stroud OPA, both were in good shape.

From the outside it looks like it was originally shops. L shaped interior that's quite plain and dark. 5 real ales and food served.
Live music

Blackthorn _ left this review about The Strand

An L-shaped pub towards the end of Cheltenham’s High Street, it has large windows at the front and high ceilings giving it a light and airy feel, although it does nonetheless have something of the ambience of one of those popular all day lounge bars rather than your traditional pub, only accentuated by the fact that there was a toddler being bottle fed on the table next to us during our recent Saturday morning visit.

Decor wise it’s fairly unremarkable, with a mixture of dark blue and cream paintwork, and black wooden boards on the floor. Seating was mostly tables and chairs, with a bench seat at the rear decked out with aqua blue padding. A courtyard garden was at the rear, and most of the tables included old bottles that had been pressed in to service as vases and contained the odd flower or two. We were there for breakfast and the menu was fairly limited with just a full English, vegetarian version and a couple of sandwiches. The full English was actually very good, with herby sausages, crispy bacon and some very soft bread. Slightly less successful was a sausage sandwich, with only one sausage split lengthways between two large door step sandwiches.

There was a good choice of beers on tap with Cotswold Spring Vixen, Brew Buddies BB01, Otter Ale, Bespoke Money for Old Rope and Bespoke Saved by the Bell. Ciders meanwhile were Thatcher’s Gold and Bee Sting Perry. Overall I quite liked this with it’s friendly staff and relaxed, chilled out vibe, but if you’re looking for something with more of a traditional pub ambience then it may not be for you.
