The Yew Tree Inn
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
Situated on the west bank of the River Severn, nestled between Tewkesbury and Gloucester, sits The Yew Tree Inn - a charming, family-run country pub. This idyllic rural establishment oozes olde-worlde charm, with its original features and glorious wooden beams creating an atmospheric setting for a satisfying meal. The restaurant offers its diners fantastic views to behold; overlooking the riverside, you can relax and watch passing boats sail by - there could be no better way to spend a lazy afternoon. Alternatively, soak up some sun in the spacious beer garden, with plentiful seating and wonderful views of the water. Barbecues on the patio are particularly popular in the summer months, when you can enjoy the freshest meats and salads in a real feel-good atmosphere. Inside, a crackling log fire makes The Yew Tree Inn equally inviting in the winter months, rendering it an all-season pub to be enjoyed by everybody. As you might expect from a country pub, the food here is traditional, but what you may not imagine is that everything is homemade from scratch, using only local produce. So whether you opt for cod and chips, home-cooked ham with a cheese and leek sauce, or the steak, ale and Stilton pie, you can take comfort in the fact that you are helping the local economy as well as giving yourself a delicious treat. A traditional Sunday roast is cooked every week, with a choice of three meats, fresh vegetables and a variety of desserts to finish your meal. To quench your thirst, there is a wide range of real ales on offer, and if you are particularly passionate about your brew, you simply must attend The Yew Tree's beer festival and hog roast, which takes place every August. Recently the pub has benefited from the addition of accommodation, which you can rent throughout the year; there are even moorings available for overnight visits. Whether you decide to stay or not, the relaxed atmosphere and hospitable staff certainly make The Yew Tree Inn feel like home.
