Looking for a pub to meet a friend for lunch this looked perfect, but we met with unwelcoming, unsmiling staff who looked as if they wanted to be somewhere else! "Who's next" was the cry from the barmaid after a lengthy wait in a queue of one. The food wasn't bad but when we asked for a pepper mill the waiter said they didn't have one - but did return with a small pinch pot from the kitchen. However, it was when we asked for coffee that we realized our custom was obviously a huge inconvenience!

Stayed here for Badmington weekend. Lovely room, nicely decorated, very clean and comfortable bed.
Pub meals are good and generously portioned. Even in a very large group service was still good. Breakfast had a buffet of cereal/fruits and help yourself team and coffee. Menu items were cooked quickly. The bar has a large range of ales and local ciders which are absolutely lethal!

We chose the Tudor Arms as a base for a visit to the Wetlands and Wildlife Trust venue at Slimbridge. We were very impressed to say the least. The accommodation was in a lodge next to the pub. The room was quite large and the bed had a memory foam mattress which was very comfortable. Breakfast was served in the conservatory of the pub, which consisted of the usual cereals, toast and full English breakfast. The pub itself was a real ale pub serving some 6 local beers and 4 ciders. The meals were freshly prepared and were very good value. We had booked as it was close to the WWT centre, and was probably only a 10 minute walk over the canal and down a country lane. I would recommend this hotel for anyone planning a trip to the WWT centre and for walking down the canal as it is only about 10 miles from Gloucester. All in all a great place to stay.

I stayed here one night during a business trip.
It is a lovely place in the Gloucestershire countryside.
The rooms are completely refurbished and the style is original and "warm" (all wooden furniture). Nice flat screen, all the toilet "necessaire" is there and everything is very very clean.
We also had dinner and breakfast there: the food was genuine and I loved it (I had a roasted duck at dinner that was excellent). Really great value for money, that's why it deserves a 5 in its category.
Highly recommended.

Spent two days at the WWT Slimbridge staying at the Tudor Arms Lodge & Free house. Room was as good as a 4 star hotel. Food was excellent almost too much No need for a starter. The staff were very friendly even though they were very busy especially when we arrived Sunday mid afternoon when they had a busy Sunday lunch time
Would recommend it to anyone, and will certainly return.

Room Tip: Adviced to book a table if eating in the evening.

This has to be one of the best kept secrets in the uk. Great value for money, very comfortable, very clean with good quality furniture, fixtures and fittings. All completed by a breakfast that really sets you up for the day!

Stayed overnight after visiting WWT Slimbridge, our third stayover here. All the staff are helpful, welcoming and friendly. Our room was spotlessly clean, as we've become to expect. After a long day visiting WWT Slimbridge or walk across canal, this is an ideal location. Our eveining meal was excellent as was breakfast. Will come again.
