The Butchers Arms , Public Houses Stroud , Gloucestershire - England where to go, what to see and where to stay in Wales


Sheepscombe Stroud Gloucestershire England
At The Butchers Arms you will find great pub food, a selection of real ales, and a warm welcome from your hosts Mark and Sharon and their team. The Butchers Arms is an independently owned traditional country pub and restaurant and all members of the family are welcome. Although we are famous for our food, "The Butchers" is a real village pub and you are equally welcome to drop by for a pint of real ale or a glass of wine. We are proud to have been awarded the title of "Country Pub of The Year 2007" at The Cotswold Life Food and Drink Awards. Visitors to Sheepscombe are delighted by its beauty and it is one of Gloucestershire’s best kept secrets. The area was once part of the Royal Deer Park of Henry VIIIth and deer still roam the surrounding woods. A number of gardens in the village are open to the public and the famed Painswick Rococo Gardens, Prinknash Abbey and the Prinknash Bird and Deer Park are but a short distance away. There are magnificent panoramic views from the terraces and gardens. If the weather is fine visitors can relax in our delightful garden and admire the lovely views across the valley. Our position facing south on the side of the valley is so sheltered that many people will sit outside and enjoy a leisurely pint in the middle of Winter. Food & drink: Our restaurant is famous for its fresh, locally sourced home made dishes with a large number of fish and vegetarian specialities. As well as our main menu of great pub food we have an ever changing blackboard of specials, usually made with fresh locally grown and reared produce. In summer barbeques are often held outside in the garden. Children- Families with children are especially welcome at The Butchers Arms. We are happy to serve half portions from our main menu and we also have a selection of children's favourites for the more conservative junior diner. Just ask for our children's menu. Wines- We have tasted dozens of different wines (dirty work but somebody's got to do it!) to create our interesting and eclectic wine list which combines the best of the Old and New Worlds. Many of our wines are supplied by long established specialist wine merchants Tanners of Shrewsbury. We also stock a small selection of white wines from the nearby Strawberry Hill Vineyard. Beer and Cider- We are all passionate about our beer and The Butchers Arms holds the coveted "Cask Marque" award for the quality of our cask conditioned ale. We always have three classic real ales usually sourced direct from the brewery.Our draught cider is Stowford Press from family owned cider producers Westons of Much Marcle. Bar & restaurant- Inside, the pub is non-smoking throughout and has a welcoming bar with a selection of hand pulled real ales and two separate dining rooms. Although customers come from far and wide to enjoy our great pub food, we are a "real pub", not a restaurant and drinkers are especially welcome. We are all real ale enthusiasts and we always have three well-kept real ales on tap. Hook Norton Hooky Bitter is a regular feature and we carry an ever changing selection of guest ales.
