Warrington Pubs

Click on the image to see a map of approximate pub locations.

From the Adelphi Vaults to the Woolpack, taking in the Barley Mow, the George, the Lower Angel, Nags Head and more along the way, below is a list of old Warrington town centre pubs.

If the pub’s name is highlighted in bold italics click on it for further information. The location map on the right may also be of interest.

The date in the ‘Year’ column is the earliest reference I have found to the pub shown. Some pubs are therefore likely to date back even further. A question mark (?) in the Year column denotes a pub that I believe existed but do not yet have specific documentary evidence to back this up. If you can throw any further light on these pubs please contact me.

In order to keep the list manageable, pubs opened in the last decade or two have typically not been included even if they have subsequently closed.

Further down the page is a list of old Warrington district pubs (i.e pubs located outside the town centre).
