The original Frogmill was a working mill dating back to 1068 and it was mentioned in the Doomsday Book. It became a coaching inn during the 1600’s. It was once tied to the Stow Brewery but was later associated with the Cheltenham Brewery. The Frogmill was bought by the Old English pub chain in the late 1990’s. This company, in turn, was acquired by Greene King of Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.                 The Frogmill was then sold to new owners – Windash Ltd. In June 2006. The directors of Windash also bought the Quality Inn in Gloucester Road, Staverton for £2.5 million. The company subsequently got into difficulties and the Frogmill Hotel ceased trading in August 2007. The problems were confounded when the premises were flooded in the Great Gloucestershire flood of  20th July 2007.

The Frogmill was bought by the Brakspear Pub Company in 2016 and, after extensive renovations, was opened to the public in 2018.

The Frogmill was named best pub in the South West in the 2022 National Pub and Bar Awards. Up against 15 regional winners the Frogmill went on to win the ‘Best Pub In The Country’ Award 2022.
