Hope Tavern, Elizabeth Street, Ancoats. (c) Neil Richardson .
The Hope Tavern used to stand on Elizabeth Street, off Rodney Street and Butler Street, opposite where the recently demolished Admiral estate pub used to be. From above, the 2008 shot on Google Maps shows a row of houses to the north and the Admiral to the south-east at the meeting of Butler Street and Rodney Street. However, fast-forward to 2012 at street view and the flats and the pub have been razed to the ground. The Hope can be traced back to 1843 and by the turn of the century was under the ownership of Bentley's Viaduct Brewery of Ardwick. Threlfalls took these over and the Hope Tavern survived here until 1962 .
