The Leopard Inn stood just below the Cotswold Playhouse in Parliament Street. It closed in 1968 and has since been demolished.

Percy Cowley, the long serving landlord at the Leopard Inn, was the singles winner in the Stroud & District Cribbage League. The pub had successful darts and cribbage teams.
