Tel - 01684275714,  The Boathouse, Mythe Road Tewkesbury, GL20 6EB

We're really excited about opening in Tewkesbury.  Our pub is beautiful with fantastic views of the river and our aim is to turn it into something really special - something we feel it deserves.

We painted for a month, re-fitted the kitchen, put down carpets, put up shelves and filled it with lovely food and drink - we enjoyed every minute of it.  We have made some great friends along the way - Roses Theatre, Theoc House, Paddle Adventure and Jam Rolly Pollys to name but a few and we're looking forward to having a bit of sun and meeting many more on our terrace!
