    Three for me-Harrow,Low House and Black Horse, though that was in the eighties,so no review on this or any site.I contemplated revisiting back in April, but there wasn't enough times between trains.

    Thanks for posting this. Yes, you really must get yourself up to Preston.


    I've been to six of the 11 pubs listed.

    Whitelock's Ale House in Leeds (upgraded from Grade II to Grade II*)
    The Prince Alfred in Maida Vale, London (upgraded to Grade II*)
    Red Lion in Westminster, London (relisted at Grade II) - this is a very vague reference, but I assume it's this one: https://pubheritage.camra.org.uk/pubs/59
    Admiral Vernon in Dagenham, London (newly listed at Grade II)
    The Victoria in Great Harwood, Lancashire (relisted at Grade II)
    Black Horse in Preston, Lancashire (relisted at Grade II)

    Yes ,three also,
    Blythe Hill Tavern
    Red Lion

    The Harrow Inn is on my radar but so far failed on two attempts.

    Seven for me, all of which I would recommend

    Of the remaining four, the Low House, North Star and Harrow (thanks to Tris) are on the 'to do' list, but I can't say I've ever heard of the Admiral Vernon - I thought The Eastbrook was the definitive Dagenham/East London inter-war boozer.

    I went to the Admiral Vernon with one of my Luton Town mates in February 2009, before a game that we lost 2-1 in the season when we were relegated from the Football League. He was into heritage pubs - I've kinda picked up the torch after he died in 2013. I didn't make any notes or take photos - this was a year before I'd even heard of Pubs Galore - and I don't remember much about the pub, except that it was pretty busy - well, when the Hatters come to town...

    I certainly don't remember it being as bad as Andrew Parr's review from 2008: "unless you are a very brave man DO NOT even think about going through the door".


    PS I think we went to the Eastbrook as well.

    6/11 for me too (the Hants, London and Oxon ones).

    Flippin'eck! My visit to The Harrow predates BITE and PUG: I need to return, though we're not over that way much now.

    Yes, it is the Duke of York St Red Lion. And relisting means that although it was already Grade II Listed, Historic England has enhanced the description.

    Just the four London ones for me.
