Kings, Queens and Martyrs Tour 10. The Old Crown Inn

In the 15C the Crown Inn occupied a much larger site. It came to prominence during the Civil War when Colonel Massey, commander of the garrison defending Gloucester set up his headquarters at the inn.

By 1680 it had become the Old Crown. It ceased trading in 1760. All that remains of this original inn is the building now known as Hyatt House at 91 Westgate Street.

The buildings which now make up the Old Crown were home to Woods Army & Navy Stores for some time, but were renovated by Samuel Smiths Brewery and ‘re-established’ as a pub in 1990.
