Samuel Smith

About the Pub

Built in 1744 by Peterborough MP Edward Wortley and used as a workhouse, then largely rebuilt and converted into a row of almshouses in 1837. Bought by Samuel Smith's brewery and became a pub in October 1981. Nearly demolished in Queensgate development. Underwent a sympathetic refurbishment in 2003 that provided six drinking areas. Two bar areas, two snugs and two reception rooms with real fires. Pictures of old Peterborough on the walls. Best prices in city centre. It is claimed that Charles Dickens was inspired by this building to write Oliver Twist. Reopened in Feb 2019 after a lengthy closure, but sadly will not be serving Real Ale.
