Duke Of Argyle

Duke Of Argyle, Cambridge

Picture Source: Mike Pittock

The Duke Of Argyle was situated at 90 Argyle Street, closing in 1999. This pub has now been demolished and redeveloped as housing.
From 1979-1990, The landlord and landlady was Ray & Jean Patton, with son Ray, and daughter’s Jeannette, Sally and others. The pub was made open plan in the mid-eighties, and the front door then lined up perfectly with my front door (65 Argyle Street). The left hand bar had a notorious wonky floor, useful for tipping the pool table if you were in the know.
Rumour had it that the car park appeared as the result of a Luftwaffe raid, as were a few other gaps in the terraced housing of the area around the railway yards.
