The Ferry Boat

The Ferry Boat, Norwich, Norfolk

A distinctive, three-storey, gabled building close to the River Wensum, picked out in blinding sunshine.

The George

The George, Stockport, Cheshire

An imposing street-corner 1930s pub amidst modern office blocks, once tied to Liverpool brewers Higson’s. Standing on a busy road junction right in the town centre, this is a major eyesore. Still open on StreetView.

The Rosswyn

The Rosswyn, Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire

A former small hotel in this picturesque market town, which also had a public bar and in the past featured in the Good Beer Guide.

(My own picture)

The Church

The Church, Ardwick Green, Manchester

A former Wilson’s pub in what must have once been an attractive setting facing Ardwick Green just south of the city centre.

The Wilsons

The Wilsons, Runcorn, Cheshire

A large early Victorian pub in Runcorn’s run-down Old Town area. Originally known as the Wilsons Hotel, it also went through a spell as a fake Irish pub. Still open – and bathed in sunshine – on StreetView.

The Booth Hall

The Booth Hall, Hereford

The weeds are growing up in the outside drinking area of this impressive Georgian pub in a back street just off the city’s central square. Still open on StreetView.

The Admiral

The Admiral, Cadoxton, Glamorgan

A distinctive pub with a stone-faced ground floor and half-timbered upperworks close to Cadoxton railway station, Barry. Still open on StreetView.

The Ship

The Ship, Hereford

A 1930s pub on the busy St Martin’s roundabout south of the city centre. Note the distinctive West Country Breweries ceramic plaque to the left of the door.

The Ferryman & Firkin

The Ferryman & Firkin, Southampton, Hants

An imposing Victorian building on Southampton’s High Street. Still open on StreetView. The Dolphin Hotel next door is also an impressive-looking place.

The Paddock

The Paddock, Salford, Lancs

An impressive pub, probably dating from the inter-wars period, near to Salford’s modern shopping centre.

The Stag

The Stag, Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire

A basic back-street pub in this picturesque market town. I have memories of setting the world to rights in the back room over a few pints of cloudy cider. My recent photo – it still shows as open, although For Sale, on StreetView. Note the banner which says “Mike and Karrie welcome old & new customers to The Stag”.
