This place used to be the place to be, but its old and dated and wants a complete refurb, and often has rowdy football which you can hear in every room!-they need to take some advice from the guys at Theocs house ( just down town) It would be shame to see it go, but It has little to offer,...

This was one of the first pubs we visited when we first moved to Tewkesbury, and thanks to Rod and Vee, it will always be a favourite. Much is made of the value that (Wethersomething) provides, but this place matches it pint for pint and bite for bite. Wish we hadn't moved a little further away, but we'll keep going... More

Stopped here with family and dogs after a walk along the canal. Dogs welcome outside,and the food was good and incredibly reasonable! Lovely weather helped the ambiance on the terrace, there is a large grassed area with picnic tables close to the canal side. Inside is a traditional old world pub offering a wide range of local ales an draught... More

We have tried the new menu, which is out only since a couple of days, and found some interesting and nice dishes. Especially the Lamburger with Tzatziki in a wrap and the Halloumi in Batter were absolute delicious. Good value for money and nice staff.

Stands out well at the top end of town and located beside the river, with good food and friendly staff, ideal pub to while away an hour or more in their garden

To anyone visiting the Tewkesbury area, I strongly recommend a trip to Ye Olde Black Bear! Not only is the pub itself oozing from every nuck and cranny with character and history, but also benefits from a large riverside beer garden along with a great food and drink. As soon as I entered I was welcomed by a handsome member... More

Staff were friendly and helpful, there was an ample outdoor area and this pub is dog ffriendly. We were served promptly and the staff were very helpful. I would reccomend to anyone with a... More
