About our venue

Situated at Crickey Hill, near Birdlip, on the junction of the A417, B4070 and A436, The Air Balloon is particularly easy to get to from anywhere in Cheltenham and it’s suitable for the whole family. Outside there are large car parks and two garden areas one laid to lawn, the other an extensive split-level patio with plenty of cover and heaters to prolong your enjoyment of the summer evenings. Adjacent to the patios is a kids play area so you can unwind with one eye still on the little ones. The exterior of the pub is deceptive as inside we have seating for 100 diners with plenty of room and comfy seating areas, maybe next to the Inglenook fireplace and wood burner during cooler months. Our staff are a skilled and energetic team dedicated to customer service.
