Dog & Partridge, Chester Road

Dog & Partridge, Chester Road, Stretford, 1992. (c) deltrems at flickr.

The first of the lost pubs around United's ground, Old Trafford in Stretford, the Dog & Partridge is pictured as a Chef & Brewer pub in 1992.  It's also shown in 1973 (wrongly labelled as Chorlton Road, Hulme) when it was larger - where the games room entrance was in 1992 used to be an extra wing of the pub.  It's since been demolished and a Wetherspoons, the Bishop Blaize, built adjacent to it.  The brick and stone gatepost on the right of the 1992 photo remains today, showing exactly where the Dog & Partridge once stood - on that car park.

  1. It's a pity how the colour scheme used in its last years obscured the attractive ground-floor stonework. Another very impressive pub in its heyday.

  2. A regular haunt of mine for a long time. Cask Boddingtons was the order of the day here.

  3. What sort of a difference to the taste of a brew do things like temperature, bubliness (this sort of thing - make?
    In your opinion for example, does a Fosters that is a bit more gassy taste better or worse? Can things like this change your opinion of a pub, or is a Carling the same wherever you go?

  4. Does anyone have pictures from the 1960's/early 1970's of the Dog and Partridge on Chester Road ? can you upload them if you do please ?

  5. Wetherspoons did not build the building it now occupies. It was built by H & J Quick as their first garage / showroom in 1912. Since then it has been used by a variety of firms including Horlicks and Ruberoid. Prior to Wetherspoons it was a Car Audio specialist.
