The Brewers Arms was located on the eastern side of the High Street, approximately midway between the Nottingham Arms and Trinity Street (opposite the Britannia). The Brewers Arms probably sold beer from the Abbey Brewery which was on the other side of the High Street. There is no mention of the Brewers Arms in the 1891 or 1903 licensing books. The Orange Pig wool and knitting shop occupy the building.

Known in the 1860’s as Hodges’ Beerhouse this was at No.122 High Street. It was licensed in 1869 and open in 1881 but a news item in 1883 refers to an alley ‘next to the former Brewers’ Arms, so it seems likely that it closed c.1882. Mrs Hodges, the wife of one of the tenants, made and sold here her own clay pipes.

Landlords at the Brewers Arms include:

1869 Samuel Hodges

1881 Samuel Evans
