Welcome to The Butchers Arms

The Butchers Arms is a traditional free house pub lying in the heart of ‘Cider With Rosie’ country in the beautiful Sheepscombe valley near Painswick in Gloucestershire.

Although we are well known for our traditional home cooked food, “The Butchers” is still very much a village pub and you are equally welcome to drop by for a pint of real ale or a glass of wine. The area is a magnet for walkers, cyclists and tourists and attractions such as the Rococco Gardens and Prinknash Abbey are just a short drive away. Strolls in the local woods can be as long or leisurely as you wish and the less energetic can drink in the panoramic scenery from our garden terrace.

 

 

Bar & Dining

We pride ourselves on our freshly home-cooked, ‘no nonsense’ dishes, using locally grown or reared produce wherever possible.  Our traditional pub classics menu changes twice yearly to reflect ‘Light Nights’ and ‘Dark Nights’.  However we always have some variety on our ever changing Specials Board and Pie of the Week offering.

What’s not to love?

Looking for somewhere local that was serving food on a Tuesday evening, The Butcher’s Arms fitted the bill. We received a warm welcome and great service. We both chose the pie of the week – steak in ale with horseradish. This was an excellent choice made with quality ingredients and was really filling. My Pimms was mixed perfectly and laden with strawberries, cucumber and mint. The Butcombe went down really well too! Overall, an excellent experience and somewhere we will both happily return.

Fantastic little gem

Stopped by after visiting the food festival in Stroud. We had a couple of pints of cider and some of their sandwiches as we didn’t eat at the festival. Glorious sunshine, excellent customer service from the whole team, can’t wait to return!

“Walking from the quiet peaceful countryside into this bustling friendly pub was such a joy. Staff were very attentive even though it was a busy Sat lunchtime. Clean toilets with toiletries available too, nice touch.
Good menu even for veggies. Entertainment….dogs taking their owners for a drink and meeting their pals.”
