Star & Garter, Fairfield Street :: Shared Description

The Star & Garter on Fairfield Street is a grade II listed building. It was built in 1803 approximately 100 yards from its current position. When Store Street/Bank Top/London Road railway station was expanded with the addition of the connecting line to Oxford Road in 1849, the Star and Garter was moved, brick by brick, onto its current site and reopened in 1877. Originally built as a hotel, although it did brew its own beer as well, the Star and Garter has since been transformed into a pub and club venue. Pub website: LinkExternal link

A "Boddingtons" pub until recently, it stands somewhat isolated between the busy Piccadilly Station in front of it and the abandoned Mayfield Station to its rear.

According to a news report in September 2013 LinkExternal link the pub could be once again dismantled and rebuilt nearby as part of a planned expansion to Piccadilly Station for the HS2 rail link.

Network Rail plans for improving the area LinkExternal link involve retaining the pub.
