The Yew Tree Inn was equidistant between Stinchcombe, Cam and Dursley and it has, in the past, been given different addresses.

Gloucester Journal, May 31st 1884 –  Dursley Crown Court: Timothy Malpass was charged by PC Jones with being drunk and disorderly at the Yew Tree public house in the parish of Cam. Fined one shilling and two shillings and sixpence costs.

The Yew Tree Inn closed in January 2017. In a message on the pub’s Facebook page, the tenants said: “It is with great sadness that this weekend we are shutting down. Ei (Enterprise) Publican Partnerships decided to sell the freehold of the premises and the Yew Tree went on the market for £365,000.

The pub may have briefly re-opened before final closure early in 2018. There was absolutely no interest in any renewal of a new lease or purchasing the property to maintain it as a pub for the community. In the summer of 2018, plans were submitted to Stroud District Council for the conversion of the Yew Tree to a detached house but the plans were initially refused over concerns of the ‘loss of a public house’ and the lack of evidence that it could not continue to be used for an alternative community use.

In May 2019 the sale of the Yew Tree Inn was finalised for the conversion into a home.
