Cheltenham pubs with beer gardens

It’s the weekend, the sun is shining and the pub is calling your name, but where is the best place to go? Fortunately for you we’ve picked ten of the best pubs with beer gardens in Cheltenham. Enjoy, you deserve it!

1. The Railway, New Street

Only a stone’s throw away from the hustle and bustle of Cheltenham town centre, The Railway pub has a large beer garden perfect for absorbing those summer rays with a pint of real ale and a plate of the pub’s famous sausage and mash. The Railway is dog friendly so it makes for a great pit stop on an afternoon dog walk. We mustn’t forget to mention the ice cream. It’s a must-try when you’re sat outside in the sunshine and with the flavours changing each week, you’ll never get bored.

 

2. The Strand, High Street

As it is located at the top of Cheltenham’s high street you’d be surprised to find a pretty pub garden behind The Strand. Surrounded by lots of leafy trees with the top of St Luke’s Church just visible in the background, it almost feels like you’re in the heart of the countryside. The beer garden is small with a great atmosphere during the summer and there are many events held throughout the year for pub goers to enjoy. There is a selection of great beers on tap (and prosecco by the glass), all there to be enjoyed with one of the tasty sharing platters.

 

3. The Exmouth Arms, Bath Road

On a hot summer’s day, head over to The Exmouth Arms and the large beer garden will always be abuzz with families, friends and their dogs soaking up the sunshine with a beverage. Located on the very popular Bath Road, the pub is renowned for its outdoor wood-fired pizza oven with a selection of mouth-watering pizzas cooked right before you. The pizza oven is in use from 4pm on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, weather permitting.

 

4. Wild Beer, Cambray Place

Located in the town centre, Wild Beer is the perfect pub for a post-shopping tipple. Although it is still relatively new to the Cheltenham pub scene, Wild Beer has certainly made its mark on the local residents with its selection of ever-changing unique beers. It is fast becoming the place to catch up with friends over a pint and some tasty small plates, and the courtyard garden out the back is just the place to do this. We recommend getting there early on a sunny weekend for a spot of brunch in the garden.

 

5. The Langton, London Road

You’ll find The Langton in the residential suburbs of Cheltenham in the popular area of Charlton Kings. The beautiful Georgian building has a large beer garden that is south-facing so you can soak up the sun whilst enjoying a nice cold pint of beer or a glass of fine wine. Whether you’re after a light lunch or a three-course supper, The Langton has plenty of delicious food on the menu, which you can enjoy alfresco.

 

6. The Kemble Brewery, Fairview Street

We’re expecting quite the backlash for sharing one of Cheltenham’s best kept secrets but it is simply selfish to keep it to ourselves! The Kemble Brewery is tucked away in a residential street in Cheltenham with a wonderful courtyard garden for drinkers to enjoy. The staff are friendly as are the clientele and there are some brilliant ales on offer too. There is often bowls of complimentary chicken wings to enjoy with a pint, and the ever changing menu offers home cooked mains for no more than £5. It is a traditional English pub and there is nowhere in Cheltenham quite like it.

 

7. The Beehive, Montpellier

The Beehive is the heart of Montpellier’s community and it has already been mentioned in our article about Cotswold Life’s favourite real ale pubs. But did you know the pub has got a lovely beer garden too? People of all ages congregate here to celebrate the weekend, enjoy great beer and eat delicious food (don’t miss the Sunday lunch or the Lovett pies). The Beehive describes itself as a country pub in the centre of town, and it certainly has the bonhomie atmosphere to match!

 

8. The Retreat, Suffolk Parade

The Retreat is a regular haunt of the younger crowds in Cheltenham and in the summer the beer garden is full of people soaking up the sunny atmosphere. There are plenty of spirits, beers and great wines behind the bar and there’s always eclectic music playing from the speakers. Food is served between 12-3 with lots of tasty French bistro dishes on the menu, so you can enjoy an alfresco lunch in the sunshine.

 

9. Sandford Park Alehouse

At CAMRA’s Pub of the Year 2015, you can expect top-notch ales from beer lovers who own and run the pub. Sandford Park Alehouse has a large rear garden with plenty of outdoor seating, so unwind in the sun with a pint of real ale in comfort and peace. If you’re feeling peckish, soup and sandwiches are served Monday – Saturday until 5.30pm.

 

10. Jolly Brewmaster, Painswick Road

Tucked away from the from the crowds in Cheltenham, the Jolly Brewmaster can be found on a residential street only a few minutes walk from Bath Road. Ale and cider is the name of the game at this pub, so grab a pint, a packet of crisps and a newspaper, and while away the afternoon in the spacious beer garden. Four-legged friends are more than welcome to join in the fun too.
