The Tivoli pub in Cheltenham, is undergoing a major renovation and it's finally got an opening date — this July 2024!

The newest venture from West Country pub landlord pair, Tom Noest and Peter Creed, is opening on Friday 26 July 2024.

This opening brings Peter and Tom's joint portfolio up to five venues in total, with The Tivoli being their largest, with a potential of up to 120 covers throughout.

It also marks the duo's first foray into a more 'urban' domain, with the establishment located on the edge of Cheltenham in Andover Road — with the interiors and furnishings designed to bring a country pub vibe to the locals.

Restored and renovated with the rural feel and ethos of the landlords' previous pubs, including the Sherborne Arms at Northleach and the recently revamped Bell Inn at Langford, the interiors are comfortable with furniture sourced from local antique fairs and restorers.

The Tivoli's menu is seasonal and offers an array of dishes inspired by local produce and a 'nose-to-tail' philosophy.

It's a celebration of pub classics, with adventurous twists, such as devilled kidneys on toast, pigs head scrumpet with salad Lyonnaise, gnocchi, girolles mushrooms, peas and Corra Linn cheese, as well as sticky toffee pudding and flourless Valrhona chocolate cake and crème fraiche for dessert.

Locals can also expect pub snacks, alongside daily lunch specials, regular chicken and steak nights, live music and key sports fixture showings.

As for the bar area — arguably any pub's bread and butter — The Tivoli boasts an 'impressively large' one, aside from the two floors for dining and two private rooms for parties, events and large group bookings.

Draught pours of local beers will be available, including DEYA Brewery, where Peter and Tom have worked closely to produce their own IPA, Publican IPA.

The landlord duo said: 'We’ve been lucky enough to take on and restore some great buildings so far, and we’re excited to be stretching our wings a bit with The Tivoli — it’s a legendary spot to those who’ve been in Cheltenham for a while, or grew up around here, so it felt like a natural fit for us.

'We welcome lots of the urban crowd who drive out to our rural pubs, so we’re looking forward to bringing our own slice of the countryside to their doorsteps.’
