The New Inn was located on the north-eastern corner of the junction of the High Street and Trinity Street. (directly opposite the Britannia on the western side of the High Street).

The site of the New Inn.

The New Inn was probably Godsell & Sons of Stroud most northerly tied house. When the Stroud Brewery Company acquired their rivals Godsell’s in 1928 it seems that the New Inn was no longer operating as a public house. The last tenant, William Booth, purchased the property for a sum of £250 and ran a green grocers shop until World War II. It later became a Coffee Tavern. The building was purchased by property developers c.1970.
