You’ll find The Carpenter's Arms within a short stroll of Windsor Castle, Thames Street and Castle Hill. The first reference to The Carpenter's Arms was recorded in the Berkshire Pigot's Directory of 1844, with the license held by J. Humphreys. The Carpenter's Arms takes its name from the tradesmen that drank here — the etchings of carpenters in the windows are a tribute to that.

You will find The Chequers in Oxford within a short stroll of Queen Street, St Aldates and Cornmarket Street. Some of our pub’s interior dates back to the 1500s when an old tenement belonging to a moneylender was rebuilt as a tavern. The chequerboard was the symbol of the money-changer having its origins in the checked cloth used by the Romans in their calculations, hence Chancellor of the Exchequer. Our pub once exhibited strange animals discovered by 17th Century explorers and technological marvels of the age.

Based in Oxford within a short stroll of Queens Street, Carfax Tower and High Street, The Crown has had a succession of famous landlords. In the year of the Gunpowder Plot it was kept by John Davenant and it was during this time Shakespeare paid his frequent visits to Oxford. The poet used to stop in the University town on his journeys between Stratford and London, and the Crown was his headquarters.

The Eagle and Child lays claim to a number of interesting literary connections. J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis and fellow writers met here and dubbed themselves 'The Inklings'. They nicknamed the pub 'The Bird and Baby'. A public house since 1650, our hostelry takes its name from the crest of the Earls of Derby. During the Civil War, our building was used as a playhouse for Royalist soldiers.

You will find The Old Buttermarket in Canterbury within a short stroll of Mercery Lane, Burgate and Canterbury Cathedral. There has been a public house on this site for over 500 years; a coaching inn called the Black Boy, stood here from the 1600s until 1908. A butter market used to be held in the square outside our pub. Flint pieces in the cellars indicate it may stand on Roman remains and we know that we used to be connected by tunnels to Canterbury Cathedral.

The Pump House is one of the oldest and most historic buildings in Brighton; A stone fireplace in our bar bears the initials of Miss Elliot who bought the building in 1766 and the cellars of our fine old building date from medieval times. When the beach was further inland a hand-operated pump was used to bring sea water to us and to nearby hostelries as people believed it had health giving properties.
