The Beaufort Arms is a gorgeous little pub in the heart of the Cotswolds. Having been standing since the late 1700s, the Beaufort is one of the oldest pubs in Cheltenham. With its fresh coat of paint, new layout and updated exterior, we still haven’t lost our pub roots. Bring your dog, watch the rugby and settle in for the best Sunday Roast in town.

    An absolutely perfect roast dinner, with very generous portion sizes. Fantastic service and the decor is fab. As a party of two we felt a little close for comfort next to a large table of 5 (around a 4 person table) plus dog and baby but wasn't the end of the world. Would absolutely return

    Great Sunday lunch, possibly the largest plate of food I have come across in a pub or restaurant😋!! The staff were attentive, without being pushy and nothing was too much trouble. Absolute ‘must go’👌

    We came for steak night and the food was absolutely delicious. The only mark downs were there only really seemed to be one member of staff serving who was absolutely lovely, but was busy doing everything so felt for him a little.. and also that the price had increased since we last came, but it was still good value for quality food.

    We had lovely Sunday lunch to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Food was excellent - nicely cooked and well presented. Portion size was generous. As the eating area filled up, the atmosphere built up and had a pleasing buzz. Service was excellent - attentive but not too much which was perfect. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will return soon AND recommend it to friends.

    Our first visit but it won't be our last! We were warmly greeted by the young lady who seemed to be front of house/bar staff all in one. She gave us excellent service and advice about the tapas. Our food was delicious and there were plenty of gluten free options which was great! The chef provided a special small plate of the Rabbit Pappardelle which my husband said was absolutely delicious. Apart from finding the lamb meatballs a bit too spicy for us everything else was excellent. We are planning to try the Sunday lunch soon. Impressed with the decor and the comfortable seating.

    The food here is absolutely delicious, hearty portions not overwhelming but you definitely won't leave hungry. The service is friendly, knowledgeable and professional they did a great job dealing with our requests and we brought our dog and they brought him a bowl of water without us even asking. Such customer care and attention is brilliant. Such a lovely restaurant, definitely recommended and would go again in a heart beat.

    Steak was fantastic and the service was great but it felt like it wasn’t sure if it was a restaurant or a pub for locals so the noise levels in the pub were really loud and distracted from what would have been a great dining experience. A real shame as the food was amazing

    We've eaten at The Beaufort a few times now and always thoroughly enjoyed it. Brilliant Sunday lunches and delicious weekday lunches. The menu offers a good selection of small dishes and main meals without being overwhelming. The service is always so welcoming and friendly, it makes a real difference.
