Buildings in Newark-on-Trent, Nottinghamshire, England
Hotels, Inns and Pubs
This page is devoted to showing photos of, and giving a little information about, some of the present and former hotels, inns and public houses in Newark-on-Trent, England, but it is by no means comprehensive, and will be added to from time to time. It is an adjunct to my main Newark page.
This photo (63,784 bytes) shows this inn situated at the junction of Sleaford Road and Appleton Gate. It opened for business in 1829.
Standing in the south-east corner of the Market Place and now the premises of Nottingham Building Society (who have done an excellent restoration job), the Olde White Hart (photo 49,525 bytes) was one of Newark's most important inns during and after the Civil War and the busiest coaching inn in the town in the 1830s. Originally a house (called The White Hart even then), it dates from the 14th or early 15th century. The rectangular arch on the left was the entrance for coaches and is characteristic of all old coaching inns.
This second photo (73,591 bytes) shows the yard at the rear. The arch is at the extreme left of this picture, and the modern inn still occupies the building on the right (part of the original), as the sign shows.
The Clinton Arms stands on the south side of the Market Place. It has had several names in its long history, including Talbot, Cardinal's Hat and Kingston Arms before taking the present name in 1823. It is first recorded in a document in 1341, but the present facade (photo 92,344 bytes) dates from the early 18th century. It was W.E. Gladstone's headquarters for his first election campaigns in 1832, 1835 and 1837.
Another coaching inn, from the early 18th century, the Old King's Arms is located in Kirk Gate, which was a part of the Great North Road when it passed through the Market Place. The Royal coat of arms seen in this photo (128,933 bytes) was used from 1816 to 1837, so was not the original arms referred to in the name.
This Georgian building (photo 83,717 bytes), erected in 1849 as two houses, stands on Balderton Gate opposite the Fountain Gardens near the junction with London Road. Recently (summer 2002) it closed as a hotel to be converted back to two separate homes. It houses a well which once supported a mineral water bottling plant on these premises.
Located on the corner of Kirk Gate and Middle Gate, this pub was rebuilt in 1883. It was in use from 1778 until 1959. Photo 68,086 bytes.
This impressive building at the junction of North Gate and Queen's Road dates from 1794 and is still in use today. Photo 68,068 bytes.
Browser compatibility statement
I believe web pages should be accessible to all browsers, rather than surfers being browbeaten into switching to some particular browser to see a page. (How many people would be happy if popular TV programmes could only be watched with the latest model of one particular make of TV set?). I am currently going through this site trying to achieve this as far as possible, but I do not have any means of testing it with all the dozens of browsers out there. When I think I have managed it with a page I'll include this paragraph at the end and a suitable logo at the top. If you have trouble viewing any page on this site, especially a page including this paragraph, please let me know (see my contact page), and tell me what browser (name and version) and what operating system you are using, so I can try to do something about it. Thanks.
