The single most common topic of conversation at The Thames Head is not sport or politics, but the source of the River Thames. The pub is named after the spot, about half a mile away, where the river begins its 154-mile journey to London Bridge - or does it?

The source is disputed, though a large panel putting forward the evidence and even a statue of Old Father Thames himself shows the strength of the local claim to it.

The Thames, though, is just a trickle here and it is not the river, but two other transport routes, that have put the pub on the map. Until Dr Beeching wielded his axe in the 1960s, the pub was next door to Tetbury Road Station and with that gone, the car now brings almost all visitors to its doors. Otherwise it is a rather isolated spot.

This is a welcoming pub renowned for its good food and it has an attractive layout with a large central bar surrounded by various nooks and crannies and a non-smoking area.

For staying longer, The Thames Head offers four beautifully decorated rooms in a barn conversion at the rear of the pub. All of the rooms are en-suite with TVs, tea & coffee making facilities and there own individual Wi-Fi hotspot. For those who like to take their accommodation with them, there is a newly completed caravan and camping site to the rear of the pub.

Since 1989 Arkell's beers have been another reason to make a special journey to one of the brewery's unspoilt havens.
