We are a group of foodie friends who were staying in a house near Stroud, but we had unfortunately chosen a very rainy weekend. We did a bit of shopping under umbrellas but to get away from the rain we went into The Retreat in Stroud which two people had recommended in nearby shops

It was busy but we found a spacious table and decamped there with all our wet weather gear and brollies! Ordered a bottle of wine and then a mixture of lunch dishes. Two had Rosti dishes, one had chilli and others had sandwiches but was all good

Nice atmosphere with red walls and beams we stayed here a couple of hours and met the great owner who on turn recommended a great place for dinner which we heeded his advice on and later had a lovely dinner as a result

Cracking find just off the high street in Stroud

Celebrating a thirty year anniversary must be a remarkable achievement for any establishment, especially in today's competitive market. But with Ian Morrison at the helm The Retreat deserves to flourish. The menu offers a wide variety of dishes to suit all tastes and pockets. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the atmosphere is always good and welcoming. Long may it continue.

Visited the retreat after a fantastic meal at the corner house, wish I hadn't the landlord was a right knobhead! They advertised a espresso martini, I asked for two the landlord said I haven't got time to make them and walked off, I said if you can't make them then dont advertise that you can! He then pointed to the door man to throw me out! I said you are very rude, he ead only willing to make quick drinks to get people drunk quicker, I was embarrassed in front of my friends of the attitude of this utter t#t of a landlord who is only interested in getting punters drunk quick rather then attend to regular customers,
When I complained again he ushered the bouncer to remove me ! He did this because he knew he was in the wrong and was a easy way out for him, I will never go there as long as this landlord is there, as their are better places to go!

Asked bartender for an Irish Creme and coffee. He told me he doesn't make cofffee drinks. I'm a woman over 60, btw. He was rude and serious. If you enjoy being abused, this is the place for you. Food's OK. Nice atmosphere. Boyz club feel.
