Lost pubs of Hereford: do you remember any of them?

Changes in social habits, drink-drive restrictions and the cost of a night out – as well as other factors – have all seen a number of once-popular watering holes take on a new existence.

The Three Crowns in Eign Gate has become an amusement arcade, the Tabard in Commercial Street is now a gift shop after previously housing Starbucks, while the Gamecock in Holme Lacy Road and the Buckingham in Whitecross Road are now a Tesco Express.

The Gamecock in Holme Lacy Road, Hinton, Hereford

And those are just some of the pubs which have been taken over by a new life.

The Salmon, on Eign Road, has evolved into a nursery while the Pippin, once a popular haunt for lunchtime meetings in the city, has now long vanished from Widemarsh Street.

Hereford Times:

Now a nursery – once The Salmon

Belmont Roundabout, one of the principal gateways to the city, once had a drinking establishment at every corner.

The Welsh Club still thrives; however, the Treacle Mine, once the Crown, is now a Pizza Hut delivery site. 

The Ship Inn, once a hugely successful business, sits forlornly and boarded up while the Greyhound Dog has long since vanished in the redevelopment of the roundabout.

So take a look below at our list of the 93 lost pubs and share your memories.
