Cricklade is a lovely large village with a characterful High Street. The Red Lion also has plenty of character and is situated at one end of the High Street. Whilst Hop Kettle are still based here, the pub is now strangely owned by St Austell. So, both breweries beers are represented. In fact, there seemed to be more St Austell beers than in most of their Cornish pubs. The selection was Hop Kettle Element, COB & North Wall, St Austell Hicks, Hi Ho Silver Lining & Tribute, Bath Lansdown & Gem & Dartmoor Legend & Jail Ale. They no longer stock real cider. Still a nice pub though.

Bit of a gem and not well advertised. The Good Beer Guide doesn't have the brewery down. It does list the one at Lechlade up the road, as being defunct.

Untappd does not have their beers listed.

The pub has room, is a 1600s coaching house and has their own brewery in the sizeable beer garden. All the beers on sale were from there - even the lagers.

Town Wall Best Bitter was a good looking, dark, malty bitter. Home made food was good quality.

A traditional english inn, seeminly a secret.

Delightful pub serving good meals, all from the board rather than a menu. Pity quite a few items on the menu were "off awaiting them to be remade", however it indicates home production (good thing).
Their own brewery supplies a great selection of beers on top of the variety they have from other breweries.
Good service and well prepared food in homely surroundings.

Stumbled by this place completely by accident and what a treat. One of the pubs I've ever been to and that's an awful lot! Ten ales, though most on the strong (+5%) side, but they also sell in 2/3 pints so didn't matter I was driving. Great 'heritage' decor, friendly and knowledgable barman, even locals made me feel welcome.

Didn't eat and was fairly quiet being a Tuesday afternoon, but just what i needed at the time. 10/10.

This place must be a victim of its own success. Excellent selection of beers and beautiful inside and out. But don't risk it on a Sunday lunchtime unless you really like queuing for 20 mins to buy a drink, or enjoy getting half the food you ordered because the kitchen is out of its depth. Food pricey.
