Cirencester is well-stocked with good pubs, bustling bars and popular nightclubs. We’ve rounded up the best of the bunch.
Nightlife in Cirencester
The Crown on Market Place is a great place to stop off for a pint when exploring Cirencester’s town centre. The pub is popular with locals thanks to its wide selection of local ales, as well as the usual popular imported lagers and reasonably priced food.
A couple of miles south of the town centre in Siddington is The Greyhound, a traditional country pub which makes use of the Cotswold scenery and weather with a large beer garden. It’s a Wadworth Brewery pub and serves some great local ales, as well as an extensive wine, spirit and bottled beer selection.
If you like a pub that shows live sports and has bar games like pool and darts, we recommend Bee’s Knees on Watermoor Road in the town centre. They have a nice outdoor seating area, a well-stocked bar and plenty of screens to watch the football. They also have a traditional skittle alley and darts room. With a warm and cosy atmosphere and friendly staff and locals, it’s one of our favourite pubs in Cirencester.

Bars in Cirencester
Next door to the Barn Theatre, one of our top entertainment in Cirencester picks is Téatro. Locals will tell you this is the best bar in the area thanks to the fantastic wine list, superb food menu and stunning decor both inside and in the heated outdoor area. Even if you’re not heading to the theatre, we strongly recommend you pay Téatro a visit during your stay. It’s open until midnight on weekends and closed on Mondays, but we recommend visiting on a Friday or Saturday evening when there’s a live piano player on.
Another place for a nice drop of wine in Cirencester is Mad Hatter Wine Bar on Castle Street. It’s a really warm and welcoming bar with a modern interior. There’s a great selection of wines, with spirits and beers also available. The food is nice too, ranging from gourmet bar snacks to more substantial dishes if you wish to have your evening meal there.
Our third and final recommendation is Seventeen Black, which sits somewhere on the border of bar, restaurant and nightclub. It’s attached to Malt & Anchor, voted one of the best fish & chip shops in the UK and one of the top places to eat in Cirencester. It's a vibrant bar, with a stylish dark interior. Open until the early hours most nights, with even later opening times on weekends, you can make a night of it here with fantastic cocktails and great music before making the short trip back to our Cirencester hotel.
Owned by the same people who run Seventeen Black, ReVA is the town’s biggest and best nightclub. With cool 1920’s-themed decor, cheap drinks deals and regular celebrity guest appearances, it’s a popular spot for young people in Cirencester to let their hair down.
