Bygone Pubs, West Quarter

Hold down LH mouse button to see where these pubs were on the modern street configuration. Use the links below to access a particular pub, inn or hotel.

About half of the pubs shown above appear on the O.S. Map of 1876. The Star and Bell appear on Benjamin Donn's map of 1765 and others are mentioned by Dymond. Most are listed by the historical street and trade directories and some are only mentioned by the Exeter Flying Post and other publications of the day.

The New Western or Lower Market was designed by Charles Fowler and took 2 years to complete. The foundation was laid in 1835 and it was built as a response to the Cholera epidemic of 1832. Vendors included butchers, corn merchants, leather and wool merchants and the Market House Inn. The entrance was from Fore Street with a central avenue of shops. The superstructure was supported by large granite pillars. The building was still standing after the blitz but was still demolished. There should have been a very good reason but there wasn't.

Many of the pubs had their own brewhouses, though there were breweries in the Yards of the Dolphin and Mermaid Inns. Clench & Winstanley had premises in Preston Street in 1873 according to Kelly.
