The PUMA store is due to open its doors on Thursday 29 June 2023. 

The Hive, Tetbury

Describing itself as a cafe by day and cocktail bar by night, luxury hotel Calcot & Spa near Tetbury opens doors to its brand-new cafe lounge, The Hive, in June 2023.

The stylish lounge offers cosy nooks for 'informal grazing' throughout the day and an ambient location for cocktails when the sun goes down. Visitors can expect a menu featuring everything from share and graze seafood boards to brunching pastries and smoked salmon bagels; and impressive drinks including cherry mai tai, Earl Grey marteanis and Cotswold negronis. 

The Hive is now open. 

The Glasshouse Inn, Longhope

Reopening in June 2023, The Glasshouse Inn in Longhope will once again be serving up freshly cooked and local produce.

The new menu will feature starters such as fresh mushrooms with garlic cream and melted brie, as well as spicy chorizo, stir fry onions, peppers and croutons; minted lamb chops with dauphinoise potatoes, fresh vegetables and redcurrant reduction for mains; and daily fresh fish specials. 

The Glasshouse Inn is now open. 

Slice Bros, Cheltenham

Pizza fans rejoice! Adding to the rich foodie scene in Cheltenham, Slice Bros, a brand-new independent pizza cafe is set to open on the high street on Friday 16 June 2023 — and there's even a GCHQ-themed pizza on the menu! 

Created by locals Jamie and David, who plan to bring 'a slice of New York' to the town, visitors can expect a menu including Triple Pepperoni; Hot Honey topped with chilli infused honey, jalapenos, hot banana peppers and Fresno peppers; as well as the GCHQ, described as Cheltenham's second worst kept secret, featuring ground beef, chicken, ham and queso cheese. 

String, Cheltenham 

Great news for crafters, a new wool and yarn shop, String, opens doors to its first ever shop in Cheltenham this June 2023.

Toys 'R' Us, Cheltenham

After a five-year absence from the county, Toys 'R' Us is making its grand comeback on Saturday 17 June 2023.
