Gloucester Journal, May 1789 – London, Cirencester, Stroud and Tetbury coaches, by way of Abingdon, Farringdon, Fairford, etc, will set out from the Golden Heart, Stroud, every Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday afternoon at three o’clock.
The 1851 census indicates that the inn was large enough to support a staff of six.
It is not mentioned in the 1891 book of licensed premises in Gloucestershire, which suggests that it had closed by then.
