Pub of The Month May

Pub of The Month May

Each month, Tewkesbury CAMRA will recommend to you a pub in our area which we think is worth a visit.

We will try and tell you which real ales they have on offer and link you to their own website if they have one!

This Month, we are recommending - The Boat Inn, Ashleworth Quay, Gloucestershire, GL19 4HZ

About the Pub

This gem of a country pub nestles on the west bank of the River Severn. It has a small front parlour with a huge built-in settle and a pair of antique settles adorn the cosy back room. Rush mats, houseplants and fresh flowers enhance the pub. Shove-ha'penny, dominoes and cribbage are played. The ever-changing range of guest beers, mainly from local micros, are served direct from the cask (up to 10 available) with up to 20 real ciders. Hot basket meals and locally produced burgers a speciality. The courtyard is ablaze with flower tubs and there are seats and tables under cover for cooler days. The pub is a frequent CAMRA award-winner. The pub has its own mooring for river visitors. Five minutes walk from a bus route. Watch out for their beer festivals. Wet dog and muddy-boot friendly. Winter opening times differ from summer, so please check their website.
