Tour of Britain takes in the Yubby

Tour of Britain takes in the Yubby

The World's best cyclists will be zooming past the pub on Wed, 5th September at lunchtime as part of the Tour of Britain. There's no more famous or exciting race in the World apart from the Tour de France. And the race is a competition our local Cotswold MAMILS (Middle Aged Men in Lycra - yes, it's a thing!) can only dream of....

We are one of the only vantage points in Gloucestershire where you can catch the skills of Geraint Thomas who has joined the line-up fresh from his Tour de France win. Sadly neither him, Chris Froome or any of the others will have time to stop for a pie and a pint, but we do offer the perfect vantage point to catch them from the pub, village green and thatched cottage lined lanes of Ebrington.

We have three rooms left the night before on 4th if you'd like to make a night of it and enjoy the race the following day. We'll be showing it live on ITV4 as the hundreds of cyclists, camera crews and filming helicopters approach the pub.

And the timing's spot on as they're due to pass through between 1320 and 1348 - so you can plan in lunch before or after (we serve food 12-2pm but are open all day as always). Come, bring your cheers and flags and celebrate this cycling tour de force with us in the Cotswolds!
