The Not So Old British Pubs
18 May 2018
We and our clients love our traditional British pubs. But you might be surprised by what some of the look like.
Five English pubs built after the Second World War have been given Grade II listed status by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport on the advice of Historic England. The pubs are valued for their architecture and history, including one designed around the nursery rhyme "This is the House that Jack Built", and one themed around the Romans in Britain. Their new listed status means they will receive special protection, so they can be enjoyed by current and future generations. In post-war years, thousands of pubs were built in areas such as housing estates, next to shops, community halls, churches and in cities damaged by wartime bombing. From the 1960s onwards, themed pubs became increasingly popular.
