Victorian Pubs

Mike Wilson, Bridlington writer and historian

According to an old document I have, there was a good choice of public drinking houses in the town in 1845.

In the Old Town these have long since disappeared: 

Baylegate: Scarborough Castle

Church Green: George and Dragon

High Street: Admiral Nelson, Admiral Parker, Buck Inn, Cross Keys, Horses and Jockey

Market Place: Kings Head, White Swan

St John Street: Bridlington Arms

Westgate: Green Dragon

Down at the Quay, these pubs have also disappeared:

Cliff Street, Sunderland Bridge

Garrison Street: Greenland Fishery, Sportsman

Prince Street: Castle Arms

Quay: Harbour Tavern, Odd Fellows Arms, Ship Queen's Place, 

Queen Street: Jolly Sailor

Also in the town at that time were Black Lion, Bull and Sun, Cock and Lion, Globe, Kings Arms, Nag's Head, New Inn, Pack Horse, Ship, Star and Stirling. 

Later public house arrivals up to 1891 were Albion, Alexandra, Beconsfield, Brunswick, Cosy Corner, Cricketers Arms, George, Greyhound, Half Moon, Hilderthorpe, Londesborough, Parade, Paragon,  Seabirds, Station and Windsor.
