Robert Raikes's house, in Gloucester's Southgate Street, has undergone an extensive restoration courtesy of Yorkshire brewer Samuel Smith. This substantial timber framed house was built in 1560 and was home to Robert Raikes, the founder of Sunday Schools, from 1758-1801.

The striking three storey pub has a series of well proportioned rooms, each with their individual character and furnishings. Some have floor to ceiling oak panelling and carved stone fireplaces. One has a portrait of Raikes. At the back of the pub is a large, walled, courtyard garden with tables and chairs and Versailles tubs.

Samuel Smith's haven't said how much they have spent on the pub, but it must be well into seven figures. A local Civic Trust representative told the BBC the building had not only been restored to a high degree but is now restored closely to its original state.
