British Queen

Picture source: National Brewery Heritage Trust


The British Queen was situated at 62 Basire Street. The pub was bomb damaged in 1940 but closed on 17/10/1940 due to bad trade. Re-opened on 9/2/1943 as a lock-up but was again badly bomb damaged [possibly by the V1 noted as landing in the area] and closed for good on 3/8/1944. The whole area was later cleared and in the 1960s was redeveloped.
