    Default Closed Pub?

    I have some spare time on my hands so I thought I would help identifying closed pubs that have slipped through the net.

    I think that the Three Old Castles Inn is closed but I’m not sure if the below evidence is conclusive enough having no knowledge of the pub or area myself.

    Property website giving address of two flats as The Three Old Castles Inn:

    What I think is the pub on Streetview:

    Wrong link for street view, but been up and down the street on street view and can't see any obvious pub apart from the existing Quarry Inn, so I am guessing the pub no longer exists.

    Another one, The Lion in Culham is now a house.

    Is it ok to post closed pubs here for checking rather than putting the links on the pubs home page?

    Another one, Machine Man.

    I've been down Fieldside on Streetview and not found a pub.

    There seems to be a concensus on the dark side that this pub closed many years ago.

    As far as I'm concerned, Yes it's fine. I'll happily check out any on this thread that any PuG member wants to flag up.

    It's no longer listed on Keinton Mandeville village's own website either, so it's gone.

    It was however a listed building, so I'm guessing the conversion had to be sympathetic to whichever bit was listed.

    Closed 8 years ago according to the local paper The Herald.

    The Oxford Mail also agrees.

    Cheers Rob.

    The Moss Cottage is reported as being residential. The Whatpub link also says currently closed.

    I've had a look at this one before and couldn't confirm it's gone.

    Whilst you cannot currently book rooms their website says

    "We have just acquired the hotel and have some exciting plans to refurbish the public areas to offer a choice of dining facilities with both Traditional English and a separate Asian restuarant in the same building."

    I think I'll mark it as closed for refurbishment until further information becomes available.
