“Excellent pub with consistently good quality food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013 via mobile

I've eaten at the Nottingham Arms a few times now when visiting Tewkesbury or going racing at Cheltenham and its somewhere that offers a really good range of beers with a quality dining room at the back.

Advice is to book; its never not been rammed when I've been. On entry the pub does look overcrowded but if you have booked a table in the restaurant there is lots of space.

Service can be a little haphazard as you get served by different waiters/ waitresses plus you choose from a board rather than a menu but it somehow all works.

There wasn't a children's menu as such but the kitchen offered to put together a variety of options for my son which was excellent and appreciated.

This is a place I'd very much recommend.

“Everything we hoped for.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

When we visited Tewkesbury in January of this year we popped into this lovely pub (see 28 January 2013 review) to find that they had no tables available. We had heard that their food was exceptional and were disappointed. Knowing that we were returning for the Medieval Festival in July this year we contacted John and Helen who reserved a table for Saturday night. Both my partner and myself thought the meals we had were some of the best we had ever eaten. Thank you to all at the Nottingham for a wonderful experience. Would definitely recommend this restaurant..

“Excellent value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

We were actually looking for another pub we had found on trip advisor but couldnt find it, so pulled over to find we had parked right outside this pub so in we went, it is a very traditional pub with wooden beams, the menu is on the wall and we had gammon and steak pie, both of which were lovely and very reasonable priced, we were served by a very nice man. There were some locals eating who must have been regulars which is always a good sign, we didn't have dessert as we have brought some cake earlier in the day and had that when we got back to our travelodge. Would definitely eat here agin.

“Had drinks, no food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

The drinks were fine, and I didn't have the food but the vibe of the little place is typical of an English pub. Laid back atmosphere and friendly staff, EXCEPT for the bar maid who was impatient and rude despite not being busy.
