Silver Jubilee – Stockport

21 Hamilton Square, Heaton Norris, SK4 1JG.

Tucked neatly behind the Asda on Belmont Way and surrounded by a neat cluster of estate housing stands the Silver Jubilee – a Robinson’s pub, built in 1977 and originally to be named the Odd Spot as it replaced the former Oddfellows pub. However a sense of history prevailed and the pub was named for the 25th year of Queen Elizabeth’s reign.

It retains its distinctive timber type, a rarity for the Robinson’s pubs, as the majority now have a shiny metallic rebrand all over their smiling fascias.

Cream and brown brick, a sweet baby blue tiled detail and trim well placed windows, combined with well proportioned volumes, have produced a homely boozer, that sits confidently in its surroundings.

Pop in for a pint.
