The pubs of Uxbridge town centre

January 07, 2015 | Scott

Pubs – who doesn’t love ’em eh?  Well quite a few of us don’t, judging by the number that have closed in recent times. Uxbridge High Street was once the site of Harmans Brewery, and the town centre has seen over 40 public houses come and go over the years. Here at Balcony Shirts we are all enthusiastic patrons of the few remaining local pubs – purely in the interest of supporting fellow local businesses you understand. We thought that it might be interesting to compile a list of Uxbridge pubs past and present along with a map showing their whereabouts.  If you spot any missing pubs or corrections please comment below. We might even meet you in The Queen’s Head for a drink?

    Ahh, but what is the favoured spot of Balconettes?

  • Scott | Posted on 12th January 2015

    The Queen’s Head in Windsor Street for us!

    I think that you missed out on The Peacock which used to be inside the Pavilions. It then became the Chequers and eventually Cafe Giardino and now a big empty space.

    We got Chequers (number 5). Did know it was called The Peacock before that? Thank you!

    Yes it was definitely The Peacock. It was demolished and the cafe built after the pub was called The Chequers. I can’t remember when he pub was demolished nor when the cafe changed name to Cafe Giardino. Perhaps Ken Pearce, the local historian, knows more details.
