Across the central 'teardrop' roundabout on the left of the Market Place, next to Lloyds TSB bank, is 'Scotts Shoes'. This was the MARKET TAVERN (18). This was open until about 1850.

Next door is the ANGEL HOTEL (19). This has been an inn since 1608. The bay windows on the ground floor, facing the Market Place came from High Meadow House, the nearby country residence of the Lord of the Manor of Staunton, Lord Gage, after it was demolished at the beginning of the nineteenth century. For many centuries the ANGEL served as Coleford's coaching inn. It had stables and a dung pit and the horses were pastured in the nearby Angel Fields up Bowen's Hill Road.
Finally, The HSBC bank adjacent to the ANGEL was the site of the BUCK (20). It was open until about the late 1860's. Richard Porter was the owner in 1858 and 1859.
