The Great Western Arms is the 'local' of Blockley, a picturesque village nestled amongst the Cotswold Hills of northern Gloucestershire.

Fancy a pint, a cappuccino, an americano or even a freshly made cup of tea or a pint of Hooky beer? Well there is only one place in Blockley where you can get all four – the Great Western Arms.

The Pub has recently been extensively refurbished and now boasts 1st class facilities and comforts. The spacious lounge bar/restuarant retains its period 'feel' but has been re-furnished and decorated with great taste and care.

Walkers welcome

Walkers are welcome to leave vehicles in the pub's car park, and if they phone beforehand they can arrange for a meal to be ready for them when they return from their ramblings through some stunning nearby countryside. Pub games are a major feature - there are crib and darts teams, there are also quiz nights.

In the springtime and summer hanging baskets provide a stunning floral welcome to the pub and on a sunny day there cannot be many better places to relax than in the pub’s sun-trapping terrace.

We have a large patio area with five tables each seating upwards of four people. There is also an extensive barbeque area that is regularly pressed into service during special events like our annual beer festival and occasional charity events.
