pub has a longer established feel with
lots of wood, including ceiling beams,
smart tables and chairs, and a red
carpet and red paint. A log fire
completes the picture with a mantelpiece
book swop library. The public bar has a
large screen TV for sporting events, and
there is a double skittle alley. A wide
selection of home-cooked food is offered
at reasonable prices. There are steak
nights, curry nights and regular
quizzes. The Morris men occasionally
rehearse here.

GUEST BEER Two Ales (H)

An early 19th century pub that was owned
by Brimscombe Brewery and subsequently
in turn by George's (of Bristol),
Courage and Ushers. Its green-tiled
frontage bears the pub's name in large
gold letters, and the sign (Ushers) is a
rare portrayal of the Admiral as he
actually appeared (i.e. without the eye
patch). The building was refurbished in
2010, the upper floors being converted
into flats. The lounge has leather sofas
and a tank of live turtles. Now a free
house, its management is keen to
establish a reputation for real ale.
Closed lunchtimes Monday to Wednesday.

SHARP'S Doom Bar (H)
GUEST BEER Three Ales (H)

The New Inn originated in about 1350 as
a pilgrims' inn for the accommodation of
visitors to the shrine of Edward II in
St Peter's Abbey (now the Cathedral).
After falling into disrepair, the inn
was rebuilt by John Twining in 1455 and
came to be recognised as the largest
hostelry in the country. Following the
death of Edward VI in 1553, an attempt
was made to keep the English throne in
Protestant hands. Lady Jane Grey was
proclaimed Queen at the New Inn and at
two other places in England, but there
is no historical evidence to support the
claim that she was actually staying at
the inn at the time. Sadly Jane's reign
lasted only seventeen days before
Catholic Mary Tudor deposed her. Just
two years later 'Bloody' Queen Mary was
to order the Bishop of Gloucester to be
burnt at the stake. In Elizabethan times
the Inn's main courtyard, surrounded by
oak galleries draped with foliage, was
used by minstrels and players, and it is
quite possible that William Shakespeare
appeared here with the Lord
Chamberlain's Men. The courtyard still
occasionally hosts travelling theatre
companies, and one was filmed here in
2003 for Michael Wood's "In Search of
Shakespeare" series for BBC TV. In the
mid-1950s Berni Inns purchased the Inn
and converted non-residential rooms on
the ground floor and first floors to
thirteen bars, each with its own style
of food and/or drinks. It became the
major social centre of the City until in
1970 Berni Inns passed into the hands of
Grand Metropolitan. The New Inn
gradually, under a succession of three
owners, became a pale shadow of its
former self until rescued in the late
1990s by the Chapman Group. Up to six
ales from brewers nationwide can be
found in the bar and one in the
restaurant. Fine function room and
accommodation, and the Inn has its own
traditional coffee house. Gloucester
CAMRA Pub of the Year 2002-4.

Licensed as an alehouse in the

Drake's "Golden Hind" which began life
as the "Pelican". Rescued and
refurbished by Wye valley Brewery in
2012, it rapidly gained popularity among
the City's ale drinkers. The single bar
is dominated by conversation; there is a
smaller room to the side and an
attractive outdoor area. Ciders and
perry come from Westons and Severncider.

Opened in 2007, this is a highly
successful second venue for Wetherspoon

warm colour scheme, gilt-framed mirrors,
potted palms and attractive lighting
give an impression of quality. A large
paved and bricked garden with mature
trees and shrubs, contains a spacious
heated shelter for smokers. Up to four
guest ales come from craft brewers, some
local. The cider is from Weston's. Food
is served until 2300.
