The Adam and Eve pub just off Hotwells Road serves local ale and really good homemade food – some of which is local. Not to mention having a really nice atmosphere and friendly staff.

JS adds: The menu changes regularly to reflect seasonal availability, and includes local fare such as Gloucester Old Spot sausages. It’s a short menu, with only one veggie option, but when we visited, it was an imaginative veggie selection that I’d never seen on a menu before! Just a shame that the house wines are all from about as far away as possible.

Currently closed for refurbishment. Reopening February 2015.
