#ThursdayQuizandCurry tonight from 8pm. Rob is stand-in quizmaster tonight. He always does a good job and there are likely to be fewer "deliberate errors" to spot! Matt is on kitchen duty as Tom is moving house and back next week. New chef starts next week too (she will bring great experience of healthy foods so look out for even more homemade, vegetarian and vegan and lean meat options that are good for you and very tasty!) #EatWell #HealthyFood The Old Elm Inn ...

The Churchdown School Easter Egg Hunt this Saturday always brings good weather! An ice-cream van will be in our car park as you secure an egg or two from somewhere within our grounds (maybe..) and all around the village. You can still pick up a map from school gates! ... See MoreSee Less

This area of Gloucestershire is home to some of the UK’s finest local food producers and at The Old Elm Inn we like to make the most of these home-grown ingredients.

We are very proud to use only locally sourced produce and use local suppliers of meat, fish, dairy, fresh vegetables and dry goods. Our kitchen team is headed by Tom Maszlag and Matt Hall who receive daily deliveries and prepare this local produce in our fabulous kitchen

We have seating for over 100 people in the Chosen Room and Bar area and serve our main menu every day 12 noon to 10pm, but it is still advisable to reserve a table at peak times ie: Sunday lunch and late afternoon when roasts are available alongside our main menu until 10pm, all day Saturdays, Friday evenings and Thursday Quiz Nights.

We offer an extra special 5 course wine and food matching menu on the first Saturday of each month for which booking in advance is essential



While we serve fantastic food, we’re a pub at heart – and that means a superb array of drinks. At the bar you’ll find a great selection of real ales and ciders (again with plenty of local representation) and an extensive wine list


Beautifully appointed and stylishly individual rooms
Including an en suite shower and heated towel rails, a flat-screen TV, and complimentary tea and coffee in the room. We provide the most comfortable mattresses and towels in order to make your stay with us the best it could beCheck In – After 2pm Check Out – By 11am Special room requests – We can provide flowers, champagne and chocolates upon arrival. Enquire when booking. Pets – Assistance & guide dogs permitted.

Great beer and food. Specials are always lovely and the deal nights are a treat.
They also have a pub quiz and live music. Recently they have started a cinema night too.
Very friendly atmosphere and a pokestop too.

Just what the village has been lacking for such a long time. A good selection of beers and great food in a lovely atmosphere, One of the best steak pies I’ve had which was confirmed by 2 other people in our group who had the same. Only 2 of our party had a roast that was huge and recommended by them- good to see a choice of meals on a Sunday when I didn’t fancy a roast. Very friendly service means I will continue to be a regular visitor

I have visited many places in the area for Sunday lunch, but I can honestly say after visiting The Old Elm in Churchdown earlier today, this has to be one of the best, I had the mixed roast, very reasonable price, and exceptional value for money, followed by Tiramisu again exceptional, at gem in the heart of Churchdown


Excellent menu, great atmosphere. Was lucky enough to stay here for a couple of nights and found the bedrooms clean, bright, airy.

Absolutely wonderful meal, starter of Baked Camembert and main of 12oz Sirloin. Incredibly generous portions and I certainly did not leave until I had finished every last bit! Highly recommend for a pub lunch / dinner. The staff were all pleasant and helpful. Will definitely be going again.

Vegan, ate on new years eve when the staff were of course very busy - they couldn't have been more helpful in making sure that our choices were actually vegan. Super staff, top service and smashing food - thank you.

Aaron Matthews

Lovely place. Very nice staff. Incredible food. Need I say more.


Good meal, great service.

Called in on the off chance, we were made to feel very welcome and good advice given about where to sit- not in bar where football was about to start. Opted for dining room and waitress service. Service was quick and attentive. My partner rated the steak as best had in a long time, my chicken wrapped in pancetta was equally good. Vegetables cooked well, not overlooked. The sticky toffee pudding could have had more toffee sauce, custard lovely. Overall a very enjoyable evening- recommend it.
