About the Pub

With the closure of the Eastgate Railway Station in December 1975 and the subsequent lifting of the tracks the original name of the pub - the Locomotive Inn, which overlooked the railway - lost its historical connection. When Whitbread sold the pub it became a freehouse and was renamed the Famous Pint Pot. In the late 1970's and 1980's it was one of Gloucester's classic real ale haunts. A busy inner ring road (Bruton Way) was constructed where the trains once ran, and Asda supermarket was built on the site of the old station. Places Trading, the owners of the Famous Pint Pot, refurbished the pub in 2002 and also enlarged it. An associated night club called Interaction was constructed on the site of the former beer garden which also opened in 2002. However, the night club failed and in October 2017 an application was submitted to convert the entire complex to residential use. After two years of uncertainty the pub opened again without ceremony in December 2019, revitalised as the Famous Pint Pot Cafe and Bar. An official opening was held on 13th March 2020, ironically coinciding with the lockdown of licensed premises because of the coronavirus. Google Maps feature an interactive tour of the interior of the cafe bar. Breakfasts are served from 9 am and the pub is child friendly.
