I was the landlord at the Dukes Head from 1991 until 1995. When I took over the pub had a steady trade of local customers and thankfully we managed to improve numbers year on year... we had the most fantastic time running that pub and 99% of our customers were friendly and courteous.

 A good honest no nonsense pub
The Drillman's Arms is a rarity in this day and age, it is a no nonsense proper pub.
The Drillman's Arms has all the elements of a traditional pub, indeed the front of the pub has the cosy feel of a living room about it. Modern pub goers are catered for with the big screen TV on the wall which was showing a rugby match. There are two other areas, which are located at the rear of the pub, a skittle alley with some dining tables (it can get quite busy at the front of the pub, if you want to dine there). The other room has a small bar, a pool table and dart board. The darts team must be quite accomplished, as there is an impressive selection of cups on display.
As previously mentioned, the front part of the pub was busy, so my partner and I, sat in the pool room. We ordered some food, baked potatoes with a chilli con carni filling, which was well cooked. They serve good honest pub grub at the Drillman's. This was washed down with Honeysuckle smash which was in good condition. Other ales available were Commando, Phoenix and Doombar.

 Not too far from the madding crowd!
The Nelson Inn is located just outside of Cirencester town centre. We were looking for a quieter location after the enthusiastic rugby fans we encountered at The Malborough Arms.
The Nelson Inn is worth visiting for the interior alone. The Ward Room has the distinction of a bar shaped like an Eighteenth Century Man of War ship. This is further enhanced by a parquet floor, traditional wooden pub furniture and a roaring open fire. It felt like a really cosy place to enjoy a meal, but as we had already eaten at The Drillman's Arms, we just glanced at the menu for future reference.
The cosy ambience was briefly interrupted by a wailing toddler, but this did not spoil our experience of The Nelson. The only minor quibble we have, is that Bombardier was the only ale on offer.
