Gloucester is certainly an interesting place to visit for pubs. From the modern bars and restaurants of the gentrified docks area (incidentally I have requested the new Brewhouse & Kitchen in the Quays to be added) to the historic pubs in the city centre, there seems to be something for everyone. I was surprised however with how quiet the city centre pubs were for a Saturday night. The Dick Whittington is a Grade I listed building. The main bar area is large and it extends a fair way back. Downstairs there is an equally large room, used for functions. To the side is a small enclosed courtyard, which can also be used by drinkers. But the place was very quiet, with almost as many bar staff as customers. 4 ales were on - Lancaster Haymaker, Battledown Saison & Bespoke Hell's Bells & Leading Light. The landlady was friendly. Nobody was eating on our visit. We concur with the previous review about the toilets. They were less than impressive.

One of several pubs in the area that I recently had occasion to visit and all in all this place makes a fairly good effort, but stops short of being anything exceptional. There were four ales on and a nice guest cider, the latter of which I heartily enjoyed. The front area is a bit like a café style lay out which has many adverts for what seems to be a thriving second life as a live music venue, so maybe we weren't seeing it at its best. The rear of the pub is a good classic timeless pub which the traditionalist among you will find pleasing. The downstairs area was closed when I visited (apart from the toilets, which did let the place down a little) but seemed to be very in-keeping with the rear of the upstairs decor. Overall, not unpleasant but more of a place for a quick drop-in than a long-stay for my money. That said, I didn't eat here but the smell of the steaks served on what seemed to be a hot stone, smelled incredible so it might be worth a punt if you are hungry.

Nice pub with a few cask ales, two of them I had to add to RB, so not just the usual suspects. Has a backyard where i enjoyed my beers on a sunny and warm spring day. Did not eat.

The two most recent reviews seem to substantiate our opinion and experience. We stayed for one drink, although we had considered eating. It was very 'quiet' on an early Saturday evening but we were told they only had one steak left and "only a few prawns". One of our party has special dietary requirements and was told that when we placed our order they would consult the cook - obviously not keen to help in advance.
Tired and dated decor/furnishings didn't add to the experience. Neither did the loud music.
One good point: our ales were properly topped up without need for a reminder and seemed to be in decent condition.
Not sure if the photo that goes with the pub is appropriate or not - pity about the police vehicle! Maybe things get more 'interesting' later - we did note there was 'live music' advertised for later on.

chain style pub/eatery - three ales on Pride, Hobgoblin and another bog standard (probably GK IPA). Didn't look inspiring so I went elsewhere.
