The Canterbury Inn was built in 1966 by West Country Breweries / Whitbread. The license was transferred from the de-licensed Barrel Inn in the High Street.

In the autumn of 2006 the Canterbury had a major refurbishment, which included a new look lounge area, a bar with pool table and flat screen TV and an 82 seat restaurant with completely brand new furnishing.

Less than a year later the Canterbury was deluged with water during the Great Gloucestershire Floods of July 20th 2007. The only things that were salvageable were four leather sofas. Greene King spent £200,000 on the repairs and renovations which included a new bar, new kitchen and wood flooring.
