A historic pub interior of some regional importance
Listed Status: Not listedSutton Road
Built 1966 by John Smith’s brewery, contemporary with the housing area it serves, the Jackdaw is a good representative of its time. Its design (by brewery architect Gilbert Ingham) kept a traditional separation of public bar and lounge, the latter fitted out with all-round upholstered fitted seating and outcrops of the rustic stonework that was something of a Sixties fashion statement. The gents’ is still as-built, with all its tiling.
It was virtually unaltered but the solid oak internal doors that were in arched stone surrounds have been removed and are kept in storage.
