‘Famous’ Gloucestershire pub to reopen

Work is afoot to reopen one of the county's most 'famous' public houses after nearly two years.

The Gloucester pub has been closed for so long its name it has almost been forgotten, giving its name, The Famous Pint Pot, an air of the ironic.

But work is underway to reopen the building opposite the doors of GL1 Leisure Centre, and which is joined to the former The Registry and Elevation Nightclub.

It is understood the now not so famous pub will reopen as a café and bar in the near future, although no date has yet been announced.

The Famous Pint Pot was part of the Places Trading empire, which owned the likes of the Baker Street public house near Gloucester Quays and the now defunct Brunswick, on Park Road.

The Registry and Elevation Nightclub was put on the market for £750,000 in 2016 and a planning application to turn the building into flats has since been submitted to Gloucester City Council.

The plans were submitted by Gloucester firm Chi Bro Co, run by the Yip family, for 21 one-bed and two two-bed apartments with Gloucester City Council.
