The New Inn is an historic Grade I listed coaching inn located in the centre of Gloucester, England. According to Wikipedia, "The Inn was built not long before 1455 by John Twyning, a monk, as a hostelry for the former Benedictine Abbey of St Peter. It is on the site of an earlier inn. After the dissolution of St Peter's the inn passed to the Dean and Chapter of Gloucester Cathedral and was leased to various inn holders until it was sold in 1858." The New Inn is the most complete surviving example of a medieval courtyard inn with galleries in Britain. As well as a pub there is also a hotel, restaurant and coffee house.
