The New Inn was situated on the towpath of the Stroudwater canal at Newtown. It was popular with bargees working on the waterway. It is not mentioned in the inventory of property that the Stroud Brewery Company undertook after the takeover of Godsell’s Brewery in 1928. However, it was certainly still trading in the early 1960’s when it was a noted cider house. It closed soon afterwards. It is now a private residence – the New Inn, Old Bristol Road, Newtown, Stonehouse.
