Delivering traditional British pub flavours in an idyllic country setting, The Bumble Bee in Quedgeley is ideal all year round, with a cosy log fire for winter and beer garden for summer. The pub’s hearty heritage as a fresh water spring and cider orchard also accounts for the great cuisine.
Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Bumble Bee menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Bumble Bee ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.
Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.
The Bumble Bee is a mere 11-minute drive from Gloucester.

The menu suited all tastes and budgets. The service was exceptional and the pricing was reasonable. A good place to eat with the family and it is dog friendly. I would recommend The Bumble Bee.

Appalling, booked for 7.30 so quite early and our party of four ordered the Scallops,we were told they were not available so we then ordered the calamari which was also unavailable so then I chose the prawn and lobster cocktail which was frankly awful the prawns and lobster we’re probably from frozen as they were both minimal and tasteless, for main I ordered the hunters chickken which again was unavailable so I ordered the 8 oz rump which was poorly presented and very very tough. All in all a very poor experience

6 of us dined here on a Thursday lunchtime. We had mains and desert, all very good pub food except one had hunters chicken and the bacon was black around the edges but overall we were happy and the deserts were very nice. Service good and total bill had 25% off with special deal when booked...great! Shame that there are so many bad reviews because we've never had a bad meal. Will visit again.
