Horn in Hand, Nottingham
Horn in Hand, Nottingham
Possibly the Nottingham pub with a history of the most changes of name. Originally on the site of a pub called the Spread Eagle, this former Bass house was the City Family and Commercial Hotel, then reverted to the Spread Eagle in 1952, then Fagins in 1984, the Goldsmith Pitcher in 1994 then the Speak Easy and is now the Horn in Hand. The name Goldsmith Pitcher was a punning allusion to the Goldsmith Picture House, a cinema once in the building next door (Whitworth 2010). In 1876 the publican of the Spread Eagle was Samuel Palmer. The current building was constructed in 1937 as the Spread Eagle Hotel for Bass, Ratcliff and Gretton to a design by architects WB Starr & Hall.
