On 21st October 1848 the Pheasant Inn was offered for sale at auction as part of the inventory of the Original Gloucester Brewery, which was located in Westgate Street. The Gloucester Brewery had twelve public houses.

The Pheasant Inn was submitted to the compensation authority for closure in February 1907 but survived until the whole area was demolished in the late 1950’s.  It was described as having ‘no stabling attached to it and there were three other public houses within 150 yards.’ (See also Black Lion and Columbia House Inn in Columbia Street). There were two public rooms and only one convenience in the public house’.
