Bike 'n' Hound, New Beech Street
Bike 'n' Hound, New Beech Street
The Bike n Hound was originally The Royal Albert commemorating Prince Albert, the Consort of Queen Victoria, who died in 1861. The beerhouse licence dates back to around 1850. The first owner and licensee was Thomas Bridge, who was there for around ten years. After 1890 the Royal Albert was bought by the Philanthropic Burial Society of Hyde.

This view from New Beech Street shows the very old brick/stonework contrasting with the "newish" paintwork. Originally the doors opened into a back yard that included outside toilets. These were knocked down around the 1970s when New Beech Street was built.
