The Bunch of Grapes is not listed in the 1903 book of Gloucestershire licensed premises, which suggests that it had closed by the turn of the twentieth century.

However in the mid 1970’s Jon Bartholomew & Son published an ‘Inns of the Cotswolds’ map, which was compiled by K.C. Jordan. Painswick was credited with three pubs – the Adam and Eve, the Falcon and the Bunch of Grapes!  Strangely there was no mention of the Royal Oak.

The Bunch of Grapes is now a private house located close to the northern set of traffic lights in the town.
