Ye Olde Hope

Picture source: Charlie Goodwin

Ye Olde Hope was situated at 2-4 Pollard Row. This pub had certainly been present as the Hope Tavern by 1802, and in fact probably well before that date.  By 1983 it had been renamed Buskers Free House and this incarnation lasted until around 1990 when the pub closed.  It reopened in 1993 as the Ye Olde Hope, this name by 2006 also subtitled Edís Free House.  The pub closed in March 2007 and was immediately demolished to accommodate a development of new flats (see photo below).
