This pub is named after the poet John Taylor, also know as the 'Water Poet' and born in Gloucester, of 'humble parentage', in 1580. Educated at the Crypt School, he became a London waterman to supplement his income gained through composing rhymes.
Eastgate Street is one of the four main thoroughfares in Gloucester city centre and was renamed 'Eastgate Street' in the late 20th century, having been Barton Street since mediaeval times. Barton Street was the location of the ancient Barton Fayre, revived in the 1990s and now attracting an estimated 30,000 visitors annually.
