Burton Boys

Picture source: Jane Daniell

The Burton Boys was situated at 103-105 Exeter Street. This pub closed c.1990 and was subsequently demolished. Also known as The Young Burton Boys, it was upgraded from an alehouse in the late 19th century. Named after a local custom called Freedom Fighting when schoolboys from Old Town and Breton reenacted the Breton raids of the 15th century.
