In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

Some of them may well still be offering a takeaway beer service and some others will also be selling food takeaways, perhaps even with delivery. If you can give any of our pubs some support through these terrible times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support of possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

According to the Borough Police licensed premises register 1903-1923, beat bobby number 16 would walk past the pub between the Rainbow and Golden Fleece, placing it somewhere near where we show it on the map. The pub has since been demolished as part of a road widening scheme.

Thomas William Mannall appears in the 1881 census as landlord of the Lord Palmeston in St Matthews Street (also one time landlord of the George Inn, Woodhouse St) (info from JOHN MARTIN)
