We decided to look back through The News archives to see if we could find some of the old drinking establishments that are sadly no-longer part of the city having closed down over the years.
Located in Middle Street, Southsea, this pub was built in 1968. During its lifetime it also operated under the names of Churchill’s and Jimmy’z. It closed in 1999 and was demolished following an arson attack.
The Black Dog was a popular pub with a mock Tudor frontage. it was demolished in the early 1960s and another pub of the same name was built a few yards to the west of it. This building was demolished in 2002.
Located on Twyford Avenue in Stamshaw, this was another one of A E Cogswell's boozers. Designed for the Pike Spicer brewery it offered bed and breakfast until its closure in early 2012. It has since been turned into apartments.
