Info about Tunnel House Inn
Built in the 1770s to cater for the thirsty navvies & leggers* of the Thames & Severn Canal, it has adapted over the centuries to cater for all.
Set in an idyllic location and providing excellent fresh-cooked food, outstanding ales and a superb wine list, you may find it hard to leave. We will welcome you with roaring fires during the winter and a beautiful beer garden in the summer to come and enjoy Gloucestershire’s finest.
We invite you to join us…
*Navigational Engineers or “navvies” built the canals and the railways in the 18th and 19th Centuries and were famously hard drinking. Leggers propelled canal traffic through tunnels by lying on barges and pushing against the ceiling. Manual labour then as now is very thirsty work.
