Theoc House - Tewkesbury


The old adage "out with the old in with the new" applies very aptly with Theoc House. A very bad Pub Co premises being transformed into a new and rejuvenated Freehouse. Not long opened now but starting to become more and more busy and one of the talked about pubs in the town. By all appearances it could be mistaken for a just another trendy coffee house rather than somewhere that would serve a good pint of real ale. However being a Freehouse they serve both to a very high standard, which works very well along side their all day food menu's. Its has a great mix of food and drink that is new and very original for Tewkesbury.

Severn Vale Brewing Co's Severn Sins is a regular and you are also likely to find a complementing but contrasting pint of Bath Ales Gem being served. They have swapped the Gem to Goff's Jouster also and being a Freehouse I hope to see the beers regularly change over the next few months.

Independently owned by James and Simon you will always be welcomed with a smile whatever the occasion. A new take on what a pub / bar should be they have a great selection of books and board games to keep both the young, and the young at heart amused.

As their Facebook page states "A friendly, neighbourhood cafe bar located in the heart of Tewkesbury. Serving coffee, drinks and a great selection of food throughout the day. Use us for whatever you see fit, a morning coffee, brunch meeting, ladies lunch, afternoon chill or romantic meal for two."

Next time you are visiting Tewkesbury definitely worth a visit for a spot of lunch or evening meal, and definitely try both of their real ale's.

I'm sure this will soon become a very good example of where the big Pub Co's are going wrong and how Independently run pubs can succeed. Its good to see a pub opening in Tewkesbury that does things differently................. Jazz night tonight!!!!
