The Argyle Hotel was part of the Argyle Theatre, unlike the theatre it part of it re-opened as a Pub after the war, and remained open until the building became unsafe, shortly before it was demolished. It was replaced by a new Pub in the precint called the Argyle. Many of the fixtures from the Argyle Theatre where used in the new Pub.

Brilliant photo
I wondered how I was going to get a picture of it
I had various photos out of books of Argyle Theatre but never realised where the Pub part was
Thanks

The Argyle Pub was like stepping back in time with a fire burning in the grate and unchanged since the photo on this site was taken (shown right). Each time my Uncle Al was on shore leave from the merchant navy he drank in there with his cronies and I knew that he'd always sling you a couple of bob if I went in to say 'hello' on my way home from school. I don't recall ever seeing any women in there, just men drinking pints of mild and smoking Woodbines as they studied the racing pages.

Picture - A Postcard of the Argyle Pub circa 1939. The Pub was part of the Argyle Theatre building and remained standing and open for business after the Theatre's Auditorium took a direct hit in 1940. In the 1980's The Argyle Pub was condemned as 'unsafe' and in danger of collapse and was subsequently demolished - Courtesy Geoff Unwin.

Some part of the Hippodrome could not have been totally demolished to make way for Tudor House which was the Co-op building because after an air raid in which the back of the Co-op was damaged a lot of stuff was thrown out into the loading bays and myself and a couple of mates went in and went through it . I found some literature and rolls of tickets for the Hippodrome in this stuff which I filled my pockets with .Its a pity I did not keep it.
