Racing & The History of The Hollow Bottom

If our pub were famous for one thing, that would have to be our long tradition and connection to The Cheltenham Races & horseracing ingeneral. Our clientele would canter right up to the bar if we let them!

With long-time owners, Peter Scudamore and Nigel Twiston-Davies, it's not surprising it quickly became known as a pub with a racing theme.

When Hugh and Charlie took over, Earth Summit came to The Hollow Bottom to bless the pub then Bindaree stopped by to celebrate his Grand National triumph. We like to think they heard our nose bag was unbeatable and our stables were first class (fresh straw daily). We are proud of our countryside and racing heritage, fiercely fond of food and dedicated to our customers, both local and those trotting through. Throughout the Pub you will find a wealth of racing memorabilia including Richard Dunwoody's boots, photographs galore and the plates - horseshoes belonging to Earth Summit the only horse to win the Grand National, Welsh National and Scottish National, sitting beside the plates of his stable companion Bindaree, our most recent Grand National winner and Welsh National winner. There are race badges and framed newspaper cuttings all over the pub, a fascinating archive of history to take in at ones leisure.


We will also have our delightful new garden & kids play area READY FOR THE SUMMER... come along for some Family Fun!


New Find Madeleine Posters can be downloaded at www.findmadeleine.com which could be taken on holiday this year to help the family.
