The Hatherley Inn was once tied to George Stibbs’ Albion Steam Brewery of Albion Street, Cheltenham. However, the business of Stibbs & Co. was acquired by the Cheltenham Original Brewery in 1898.  Other Stibbs tied houses in Cheltenham included the Cleveland Inn in Tewkesbury Road, the Mitre Inn in Sandford Street, the Portland Inn in Sherborne Street, the Suffolk Stores in Suffolk Parade and the Worcester Arms in Tewkesbury Road. George Stibbs also owned the Royal Oak in Andoversford and the nearby Cross Hands (now the Kilkeney Inn).


Designated a beer house the Hatherley Inn had an annual rateable value of £27.0s.0d. in 1903. Despite its relatively rural location in the landscape of early Edwardian Cheltenham, the Hatherley Inn closed at 11 pm in common with other ‘town’ pubs.
