Tetley / Carlsberg A plain well cared for bar side and a large lounge side in this quiet friendly local. With only three regulars plus myself to accommodate, half the bar side was in darkness along with all the lounge side! Intriguingly, two large piles of sandwiches disappeared into a back room, but there didn't seem to be anyone there to eat them! Now closed and boarded up.

Tetley / Carlsberg A pleasant two-sided pub with a plain bar and a very nicely done out lounge. A number of people have criticised, but the sign is spelled as I have shown.

Bank House "Banky" There were originally two pubs at the junction of Windsor Street and Upper Warwick Street. Nearer the river was a Bent's pub, and the other was a Walkers house called the Sefton Arms and known locally as Brown's. The latter had a quiz night as long ago as 1945. My thanks to Harry for this information.
Closed. Burnt out.

Hand pumpCains, Hand pumpguests Superb beer in this very small excellently preserved pub, built into the corner of the brewery.
After a period of closure following the demise of Cains, I'm told this has now re-opened.

Clancy's (Crow's Nest) Flowers, Trophy A nice, clean and tidy, plain wood panelled interior to this two bar pub, rather let down by the scruffy exterior, and the one week old St Patrick's Day decorations! The barmaid couldn't work the till and didn't know how much a pint of bitter cost!
Now closed.

Hand pumpFuller's London Pride, John Smith's, Tetley / Carling, Carlsberg, Foster's, Stella This plain pub with two bars plus a pool room is much larger inside than the small frontage on Sefton Street would suggest. They started serving real ale in 2010.

Dick Jennings

Tetley A plain tatty traditional street corner pub, one bar plus a scruffy back lounge. The music was much too loud when I visited. Formerly the Woods House, it was renamed after Richard Jennings, the manager in the 1940s and 50s.
Now closed. Despite reports of a planned conversion to housing, this was still standing derelict in 2012.

Empress Tetley / Carling, Carlsberg A nicely done out and well looked after pub with three rooms front-to-back but only one counter, in an unusually tall and narrow building.
Ringo Starr was born a few streets away, and spent part of his childhood living in the same street as this pub. An exterior view features on the sleeve of his album Sentimental Journey. Watch out for a succession of tourists having their pictures taken in from of the pub. Not many of them come in!

High Park Street / Wellington Terrace
Farmers Arms The exterior was so scruffy and run down we thought the place was closed. Inside was much better and included an impressive mirrored ceiling over a small dance floor area. Completely empty on Thursday evening.

Globe John Smith's / Carling, Carlsberg There are two bars plus a back lounge served from a hatch (with "Newsroom" etched in the glass in the doors) in this nice ale house which retains some original features, including leaded windows, and is well looked after. Definitely a local pub for local people, and one of only two left open on Park Road.

Herculaneum Bridge "Peglegs"
Pic
Tetley / Carlsberg This pub, now isolated in an area of new housing, is almost completely unspoiled and well cared for, a real hidden gem. The interior layout includes the traditional arrangement of a lounge side served only from a hatch at the back of the bar across the corridor. The bar back is a splendid wood and glass partition and the bar room and corridor have nice tiled walls. Accommodation upstairs.

Mount "Sixie" Tetley / 4X, Carlsberg A plain pub with two bars plus a side room. It was very quiet and the lounge side was closed when I visited. The nickname Sixie dates back to the late 19th century practice of having a reduced price six day licence, which was introduced by the Licensing Act of 1872 to encourage pubs to close on Sundays. Now closed and demolished.
