    Default Pubs with Revolving Doors

    I was in Settle, North Yorks, last week and popped into the Royal Oak Hotel - the entrance has an oak and glass panelled revolving door, which is quite unique.

    If I remember correctly, I think the Phil in Liverpool had one years back. Does anyone know of any other pubs around the country with these revolving doors?

    Legh Arms used to have one which was at the top of several steps being the main entrance. It certainly used to catch some unawares, sadly the doors are no more and have been replaced by a conventional set.

    The Guildford Arms at the top of Princes St in Edinburgh has a set of revolving doors.

    Legends Bar in Brighton and the Ginger Pig in Hove both have revolving doors. I don’t recall seeing them anywhere else I have been.

    Several years ago, I remember getting my mother-in-law's wheelchair up the six steps and through the revolving doors at the Legh Arms. Now, not only has the revolving doors gone, but there is a also wheelchair ramp via the vault.
    The Melville in Stretford (another large Holts house) had one, a little later than the Legh Arms I seem to remember, but sadly now gone as well.
