Bird In Hand



The Bird In Hand was situated at 32 Union Street. This pub closed in the 1980s.

This used to be the art school and fire station pub of choice. The gents toilet wall had some very esoteric graffiti. A facsimile of the wall appeared on the cover of an early 70s comic/fanzine/journal produced by painting students. I only went in there once (1973?) but beer was considerably cheaper than London prices at that time. A friend told me that there were weekday afternoon lock ins when the landlord would leave trusted customers in the garden while he went shopping and just told them to make sure to pay for their drinks.
