The Keepers Arms was originally a gamekeepers cottage, hence the name. The Cirencester Brewery already owned the Keepers Arms ‘and a cottage adjoining’ when the brewery became a Limited Company in 1888.

The Keepers Arms briefly became the ‘Liszt & Newt’ in 1997, and had a starring role on primetime television in Noel Edmunds’ ‘House Party’. The Liszt & Newt was the village pub in Crinkley Bottom!
