Walking on an average Saturday afternoon through Gloucester, you would not normally realise that this place even existed. Situated through an arch next to a Church, you wouldn’t expect to find a pub, let alone a pub with so much character and cider on offer!

This is a pub, restaurant & music venue with a French twist to it (hence the name). You walk in here and all you can see is wall-to-wall wine bottles, with a traditional pub look as pretty much everything is wooden. Having a Roman well in the middle is a bit odd, but gives it an extra charm. Cider-wise, it’s the best pub I have seen in Gloucester by a country mile. Every other pub only sold Stowford Press. While I wouldn’t call Stowford a bad cider, it just isn’t a great one either. Even some pubs in Bristol would be pushed to have such a good selection as this pub does. All cider is served from plastic barrels and tastes great. If you do go to Gloucester, then this is the pub to go to!
