Queen Adelaide


Picture source: Dave Woodhead

The Queen Adelaide was situated at Snelston Common and is pictured above  with the late Geoff Sharpe (once Head Brewer at Hardy and Hansonís). This was a very plain farm-estate pub with a central drinking-area facing the serving-counter behind which the old licensee would draw a fine pint of Pedigree by means of a pump contraption peculiar to the pub. A room to the left was available for withdrawing to, if desired. The pub was sold by the estate to a developer while still serving a useful, if not profitable, purpose.
