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.

    Great Goffs ale. Service was great, very friendly staff and very attentive. Pub was a little atmosphere free - we were the only table eating whilst we were there, only a few other patrons over the evening which was surprising for a Saturday. Food was fine. Basic pub food, fairly limited choice, especially for vegetarians . Fish and chips was fine for the money, nothing amazing, but perfectly adequate. Burgers the same, although chips etc are extra, so makes the burgers a little over average the local cost for similar.

    Very overpriced for the food presented nearly £100 including wine for one main course each and one dessert. It would have been nice to have chips not fries. The steak fat was not rendered properly, the tomato served alongside was fridge cold. The dessert appeared to be Digestive biscuit covered in squirty cream. The authentic lemon flavour was achieved by adding pips to the cheesecake

    Food decent but it’s very odd there is not starter or smaller options on a Sunday, it’s roast or nothing. Had a nice time but I wouldn’t go back on a Sunday just for a roast.

    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

    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.
