About Stroud

Stroud was once at the heart of the busy wool trade with mills lining the canals and main roads. Only a few remain today, but the rooms at The Clothiers Arms are all named after our local heritage.

The town centre is only a quarter of a mile away. Stroud has unique independent traders and small open-air markets that supplement the larger High Street shops, making wandering the town an enjoyable experience. We have a famous Farmers Market on a Saturday, and the markets in The Shambles are always worth a look. We also have a canal side café just down the road from us, where you can rest and enjoy a slice of home made cake with a cappuccino.

A little further along the canal you will find our sister pub The Bowbridge Arms(www.thebowbridgearms.co.uk).  Here you can enjoy a pint of real ale, as mentioned in The Good Beer Guide. Why not pop along and enjoy the canal walk on the way

Further a field, our nearby towns include the Regency towns of Cheltenham and Bath, and the busier cities of Bristol and Gloucester. The train station is only a 5-10 minute walk from us, so you can access trains to a variety of places from there. Our local buses will also get you to where you need to be, and the bus station is also only a 5-10 minute walk.

The Cotswolds, with their natural beauty and quaint villages, lie on our doorstep. There are lovely walks and plenty of places to go for a day out, and we always have a large stock of leaflets in the bar, so you can use them to plan your day.
