This page is dedicated to the memory of those pubs in Cheltenham that are no longer with us. Some will be sorely missed - some less so.

This list is not exhaustive - it only includes pubs that PubNight has Digraphs for. Some pubs have come into being and closed again before PubNight has actually managed to asign them a Digraph... such is the way of the world.
