Regent Hotel, Regent Road

Regent Hotel, Regent Road, Salford. (c) Salford Pubs of the 70s at flickr [1].

To "supply the want that existed for hotel accommodation in the locality", the Regent Hotel was opened in 1866 by Thomas Chesters (founder of the brewery) as a three-storey house on the corner of West Craven Street and Regent Road.  Oddly the Regent was intended to be without a vault - essentially residents only - but probably due to the lack of trade, it soon opened a vault and other public rooms.  The Regent Hotel passed to Whitbread and in 1977 it was closed and demolished as part of Ordsall's redevelopment.  A new Regent, an estate-style pub, was opened close by, but this closed in 1990 [2].
