Four Horse Shoes

The earliest reference we have found to the Four Horse Shoes is an 1827 directory but the pub was said to date back to the 1790s. The building is C17 / early C18.

It survived a fire in 1907, when it was the only thatched building left in Alnwick. It continued to trade as a pub until 1927 when the licence was not renewed.

It’s now part of W H Smith.
