About the Pub

Large and welcoming 17th century Inn set prominently in the heart of Minchinhampton Common. Large garden.

Historic Interest

The structure today has its origins in the C17th, but with additions and alterations built in every century thereafter, up to the present. Its original purpose is the subject of much debate, including theories on, a base for the nobility when deer-hunting & some have suggested, that the Lodge had its origin as a house for the Warrener, who managed a mediaeval rabbit warren on the Common. Rabbit meat could provide a valuable protein source during the winter months, and the animals were kept in artificial burrows. Another legend, which persists strongly to the present day, is that which states King Charles played bowls here on his way to the Siege of Gloucester in 1643.
