Recommended Posts



One of Hereford's oldest pubs will be back open before Christmas.
The Booth Hall closed shortly after the High Town blaze 5 years ago, access from St Peter's Square was closed off after the fire which impacted on the pubs trade.
However, a statement posted on Facebook this weekend states the pub will be back open on December 18. The post explains that the historic pub will focus on live music and entertainment when it reopens.

I wonder if they will re-open the passage? 


Yeah ... I was wondering that .... A critical element I would have thought ..... But the bomb site/hoardings won't be gone in 2 weeks so fairly irrelevant I think. I won't be going until all that fire damage has disappeared. I can go to millions of better places (not next to a burnt out shell) to spend the little cash I have.

The Hereford Times report is slightly misleading. It's not been shut for five years - the Numbers pub co were operating it until relatively recently. I think it's them who've had their trade affected by the fire damage. As  I recall the pub was originally shut subsequent to an allegation of a sexual offence by the landlord.

Not how I remember it. Not googled it but fire/smoke ingressed into the building on 21/10/10 ..... Spotted by a passer by ..... 


I had not heard about any allegation of a sexual offence by the landlord either? I thought it closed because of the fire.
