The stone built pub, on the southern side of West End, was converted into an antique centre that traded as the Trumpet. The front of the building has been sensitively altered since its days as a pub. The front central door has been replaced by an arched shaped window which perfectly matches the original windows either side of it. Above this a new central window has also been added sympathetically with the original architectural styles. A large door which presumably was once used for stabling has been retained and now forms the main entrance to the antique centre.
It is included on the ‘Inns of the Cotswolds Map’ published by John Bartholomew & Sons in the mid 1970’s and compiled by K.C. Jordan. The Trumpet Inn closed in 1973.
