Rather like the good Doctor Foster I arrived in Gloucester in a shower of rain. I sheltered in here in a deep sofa, listening to, but not observing, the Gloucester Fireworks display. It continued to rain for at least 12 hours, causing some local flooding.

The pub is found in Gloucester, Gloucestershire, GL1 2PE.

A large, comfortable, city centre pub in Westgate Street. The very extensive main bar area has many tables laid for dining, but also plenty of room for drinkers. It resembles a hotel bar in some respects. There is also a large garden to the rear. The building has an interesting old red-brick facade, hiding a much older property behind, which has family connections to the former Lord Mayor of London himself. This pub is a good supporter of local breweries.

We have visited this pub once, seen 6 different beers and tried 3 of them.
