Historic Interest

Possibly the Nottingham pub with a history of the most changes of name. Originally the on the site of a pub called the Spread Eagle, this former Bass house was the City Family and Commercial Hotel, then reverted to the Spread Eagle in 1952, then Fagins in 1984, the Goldsmith Pitcher in 1994 then the Speak Easy and is now the Horn in Hand. The name Goldsmith Pitcher was a punning allusion to the Goldsmith Picture House, a cinema once in the building next door (Whitworth 2010). In 1876 the publican of the Spread Eagle was Samuel Palmer (Post Office Directory). The Horn in Hand has an entry on Nottingham Civic Society's Draft local Heritage List (09 December 2013), which notes that the building was constructed in 1937 as the Spread Eagle Hotel for Bass, Ratcliff and Gretton to a design by architects WB Starr & Hall. As at November 2017, the Horn in Hand freehold (NT367845) was held by the Stonegate Pub Company Limited [Reg. No. FC029833].
