Burns Tavern, Slater Street

Burns Tavern, Slater Street, 1912. (c) Bob Potts [1].

The Burns Tavern was a Walkers of Warrington house which stood on Slater Street from 1850 to 1930.  By the time it had closed, the Burns Tavern had passed to Tetley's of Leeds [1], wand even in the halcyon days of the pub trade, must have been quite usual for a large out of town brewery to take a small backstreet boozer in another city.  Slater Street has been renamed Sudell Street these days, and runs parallel to and east of Rochdale Road, just past the Marble Arch.
