About the Pub

As of 17/1/2022 Planning Application DC/083979 submitted for the conversion of former Cobdens Public House and upper floors of adjacent buildings (72 St Petersgate and 24 - 26 Lawrence Street) to create 9 residential apartments. Mystery surrounded its closure on 10/1/2013; future was uncertain as all signage was removed and it was mothballed. Formerly the Manchester Arms, a rather careworn rockers pub that showcased plenty of music. Owners Robinson's decided a change of direction was required, so it was substantially modernised, extended, opened-out and renamed Cobdens in early 2001. The re-fit involved a deep interior on multiple levels, plus construction of a new beer terrace to the north-facing side of the building. This work was to appeal to the younger end of the market. This met with some success, and indeed changed the clientele completely. An unfortunate consequence was that the pub went keg.

Historic Interest

Acquired by Frederic Robinson with the purchase of the Hempshaw Brook Brewery of Bell & Co, in June 1949.
