In 1903 the mid 19th century True Heart was tied to Carpenter & Co’s, Cainscross Brewery. This brewery produced beer mainly for the take home trade and advertised its products in local trade directories in the early 1900’s. The True Heart was the only pub in Gloucestershire, according to the licensing records, to be tied to the Cainscross Brewery. The True Heart is believed to have closed down in the 1960’s.
