A hub of Gloucestershire’s live music scene for years; Café René promises a varied line-up of acts from week to week, an intimate atmosphere, and free entry before 11pm.

A lunch menu is available seven days a week featuring sandwiches, wraps, jacket potatoes and house specials; with an evening menu spanning the culinary spectrum from fresh fish and chargrilled meats to the homemade ‘Desperate Dan’ burgers.
