Paul Soden opened Café René and turned it into a pub that he would like to eat and drink in. He created an atmosphere that encourages everyone to enjoy food, drink, music, and most importantly each other.
We strive to do the best we can to facilitate an environment for people to enjoy themselves in a controlled manner through friendship, music, food, and drink, while promoting the City of Gloucester.
