The Brewers Arms once was owned by the Dursley Brewery, which passed through the ownership of Richard Chapman (1891) and T.W. Elvy (1903). The Dursley Brewery in Silver Street went into liquidation in 1906 and the brewery and 21 tied houses were acquired by Godsell’s & Sons of Salmon Springs, Stroud. John Pegler and his wife, Ellen Elizabeth, were landlords at the Brewers Arms at this transitional time. They had six children and apart from being licensees the family were also running a hauling business, coal delivery and a small grocery store! The pub then became a Stroud Brewery house, and ownership eventually passed to West Country Breweries / Whitbread.
