An interesting detail on this pub, is this West Country Ales plaque. The ceramic plaque is affixed to the front wall of the pub. It was first used by the Gloucestershire brewers, West Country Breweries, who were an amalgamation of others, two of whom commenced brewing in 1760. The plaques were placed by West Country Breweries on their pubs between 1958 and 1963, when Whitbreads took them over. Whitbreads continued to use the castle logo and to install these plaques, for a few years after the takeover until about 1967. There are still quite a few around, with some variation of colour, and in two sizes.
