In 1900 the Coach and Horses together with five cottages was valued at £1,800. This was just after the acquisition by the Stroud Brewery.

On 3rd February 1988 a portable gas heater in the bar burst into flames at closing time which threatened to set fire to the building. As the pub was evacuated by landlady Mrs Audrey Lord some customers and staff were able to force the heater out of the bar and into the doorway where it flared up damaging two doors and a wooden canopy. Stroud firemen using breathing apparatus dealt with the blaze which left the bar area heavily smoked damaged.

The pub has closed, presumably permanently.
