Situated just outside Gloucester city boundaries on the old Bristol Road. The Plough Inn changed its name in 1988 to Friar Tucks – a reference to the fact that the establishment is now completely orientated towards food. Whitbread spent £135,000 on refurbishing the pub into a traditional friendly inn. The new name was thought up by Val Vickery from Bazeley Road, Gloucester, who won a competition to rename the pub.
