The Gardeners Arms changed its name to the Harvest Home in the 1970’s. It closed in 2006 but then reopened. However, the pub had permanently closed about ten years later and was subsequently demolished.
The pub garden of the Harvest Home backed on to the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Steam Railway within direct access to Winchcombe Station. On operational days of the steam railway the Harvest Home should have benefited from visitors enjoying something to eat or drink at the pub. There are plenty of houses in Greet and the pub should have been a viable proposition throughout the year.
Ironically new houses built on the site of the Harvest Home caused problems for the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Steam Railway when the gardens abutting the cutting of the railway began to slip necessitating major structural remedial work to stabilise the landslip. The developers’ insurance had to compensate the GWSR.
