The original Scullard’s Hotel stood at 71-73 Above Bar Street (image below). It dated to the mid 19th century and was named after Charles Scullard the original landlord. It was demolished in 1933 to make way fro the new Regal Cinema (later the Odeon). The name then moved to 61 Above Bar Street, into what was previously the White Hart Inn. This building was destroyed in the Blitz in 1940 and a temporary building was erected on the site in 1948. This was replaced by the third Scullard’s which opened in a new building in 1953. This pub closed down in 1973, the building subsequently being used for retail purposes. Scullard’s Lane, which ran along the back of the pub from Portland Street, still exists. A new Scullards opened in the premises of the Park Tavern in Pound Tree Road in 1986. This pub closed in 1990, the premises subsequently being used as a restaurant and later as a fish and chip shop.
