40 Castle Street in 1919 directory. It was rebuilt in 1913. The pub has the letters ‘C’ and ‘B’ engraved in the stone between the central upper floor windows. As far as I know this is the only visible reminder of the Cirencester Brewery that still exists on pubs.
After many years of trading as the Three Compasses the pub was renamed ‘Somewhere Else’ in 1998. (as immortalised in the well known saying of drinkers everywhere.. “shall we finish this drink and go somewhere else”! The concept is “a chance to soak up a slice of sunny Spain in Cirencester!”
