Just a few doors down Chester Road from the Hulme Hall Inn was the Star Inn at No.206 Chester Road. Formerly the Old Trafford Inn, the Star Inn closed in 1909 as an Empress pub. The landlord moved to another Empress pub nearby, the Britannia Inn on City Road, which itself closed in 1919 . I guess the Star Inn would have been roughly where indicated above, which is opposite the old but still standing Bull's Head.
