Bulls Head / Clifton Arms / Pollards Arms, Hampson Street

Bulls Head, Hampson Street, Islington, Salford. (c) Neil Richardson [1]

The Bulls Head on the corner of Nangreave Street and Hampson Street was an old Threlfalls pub that is said to have had its own ghost [2].  It can be traced back to 1829 as the Pollards Arms public house and by 1845 it had changed its name to the Clifton Arms [1].

The Clifton Arms was soon renamed the Bulls Head and by the 1870s was a Threlfalls house.  They were one of the local brewers who wanted to open the new hotel in Weaste in the 1920s, and they were eventually successful when, in 1929, they were granted permission to transfer the Bulls Head licence (and 7 other licences) to the Weaste Hotel on Edward Avenue [1].
