Theatre Tavern


The Theatre Tavern on Oldham Road.

This pub began life in 1840 as a combined corner shop and beer house. In 1869 it was named The Robin Hood and Little John, eventually becoming known as the Robin Hood. In recent years it changed its name to the Theatre Tavern, being adjacent to Tameside Hippodrome theatre. Perhaps the pub name will be changed again now that the theatre has closed its doors.

The tiled lettering shown in yesterday's photo is on the side wall of the pub, in Cotton Street.

  2. I'm glad you like it! Compare the photo with the brown tiles of The Forrester's Call and the Blue tiles of The Angel.

  3. Gosh, the year that pub began this area where I live was still filled with wildlife and American Indians. Times have certainly changed. What was here is all gone and what was there is still there.
