Pub History

This Wetherpoon pub stands on the site of a 13th-century Augustinian friary. One of the friars - a scholar called Friar Penketh - is mentioned in Shakespeare's King Richard III.

Today, the street names of Friars Gate and St Augustin's Lane are reminders of the religious house which once stood here. The Augustinian Hermit Friars were an order 'devoted to teaching, the cure of souls and missions'. One of their number, a scholar called Friar Penketh, is mentioned in Shakespeare's King Richard III.
