Welcome to the Majors Retreat
The Majors Retreat pub and rooms is in the middle of the traditional Cotswold village of Tormarton in South Gloucestershire, just off the M4 motorway, junction 18 and offers plenty of car parking space.
The Virginia Ivy covered independent 18th century Cotswold stone pub is on the Cotswold Way walk and provides a warm welcome at lunchtime and evenings Opening Times for all hungry and thirsty walkers, families, locals and visitors to the area.
The Majors Retreat, formerly the Portcullis Inn, changed its name to avoid confusion with the Portcullis in nearby Chipping Sodbury.
The spacious main bar has large tables providing plenty of seating and connects through to a large oak panelled dining room. During the winter a very large log fire keeps everybody warm, including Mutley, the pub’s old dog!
The friendly landlord, Roy, takes great pride in his fine selection of real ales, ciders and lagers, sourced mainly from local breweries. A broad range of wine and soft drinks are also offered. On cold days, ask for a glass of Roy’s secret recipe mulled wine to warm you up in front of the log fire!
The Majors Retreat has an extensive menu of traditional pub food, offering freshly cooked and generously sized bar snacks to full meals, at modest prices. Great value children’s menu too.
