user reviews of the Ale House, Stroud

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Grade II Listed building - impressive high ceilings and loads of space. Like an independent Wetherspoons!

Architecture is where the similarity ends. This is a proper beer lovers pub - with a wide range of beers on offer - all detailed on slates over the long bar. I went for a breakfast stout - which was perfect.

Sunday night quiz seemed impossible :-) Not knowing the height in feet of Angel Falls, Venezuela, we sat on some wonderful Chesterfields in front of a superb open fire.

Lots to admire!

Headed here because it looked the most appealing of Stroud's town centre pubs from the outside. Fortunately, our decision proved inspired. Salopian Super Collider, Vibrant Forest Kick-Start/Summit, Tiley's Amarillo Centennial Pale Ale, Artisan Ales PA01, Burning Sky Plateau, Lincoln Green Spring Green, Electric Bear NZ Pale and Crouch Vale Brewers Gold were on sale as well as Olivers Gold Rush cider. Not quite full marks as too many pale ales but the beers I tried were all in very good condition.

Agreed easily the best pub in Stroud. Was also very impressed. Very good choice of beer, and a good variety of styles. Also impressed by the staff and have had bar food on the couple of occasions I've been. Covers all bases very well and a genuine 9/10 pub in my view as well.

The building looks like it used to be something else but now it is simply an ale house. Plenty of decent brews on offer and the staff were friendly and convivial. Probably your best bet for an ale in Stroud town centre.

What a great surprise, A stunning pub in Stroud. A wide range of well kept beers. Tried the standard Dark Star Hophead 9/10, then onto the guests Burning Sky Aurora 10/10 STUNNING, Great Heck Citra IPA 9/10 wow!! 10 beers in tiptop condition plus real ciders & perries. Haven't come across a cracker like this for ages, and the homemade curry was spectacular - but probably not the wisest of moves prior to a long train journey. I'll be back.
