The Ram Inn was once a superb real ale pub, with an enviable reputation for the quality and range of its beer selection. It was also a destination pub for food. The Ram, in short, was a truly wonderful pub.
It appears that the Ram has closed, possibly permanently. It has not reopened since the first imposed lockdown due to coronavirus. There has been some controversy over a planning application to build houses in parts of its car park.
The story of the rise and fall of the Ram at Woodchester will be examined in detail upon the next update to this page.
