The 1891 and 1903 licensing books list the New Inn in the parish of Kings Stanley, which is about a mile to the west of Selsley.

The New Inn was once a very popular pub on Selsley Common. In its later days it was a Stroud Brewery pub before being acquired by West Country Breweries / Whitbread. The whitewashed Cotswold stone building was demolished in 1967. It seems ridiculous that such a fine building, and pub, was lost in this official act of vandalism. The New Inn had an unusual outside skittles alley
