Salford's lost

An enjoyable afternoon spent supping over the river was notable for the generally high quality of ale on offer, but also for the number of boarded-up pubs in this small area of Salford we covered.  From the Cresent to the Egerton, via the New Oxford and the Kings Arms, we noticed seven closed boozers.  This is not including the Salford Arms which is undergoing conversion to a Chinese restaurant, plus the Old Pint Pot which we were advised against, so didn't check to see if it was open.  Of course the Black Lion further down Chapel Street past the Rovers Return has recently closed its doors as well.

  1. its so sad to see so many closed boozers on this Chapel Street crawl....for every one open there seems to be 3 shut.

  2. Not to mention Jollies / St Stephens Tavern just round the corner in Oldfield Street (photo on my flickr page) and the Crown (?) on Blackfriars Bridge

  3. The Salford Arms hotel is not converting to a chinese restaurant, just happens to be managed by chinese people. Its going to re open as a renovated hotel and a contemporary bar. Should be open soon, should check it out during the christmas month. It sure will create some positive publicity when open I suppose.

  4. Anonymous - thanks for the clarification, we were incorrectly advised! Will update and keep an eye out for its opening. Cheers.

  5. Oh, ye gods, it seems like yesterday that these were all open. I remember drinking in more than one of them - and even stayed in the Peel Park at least once. I worked behind the bar of The Crescent 87-89, for what it's worth...
