HALF MOON Tallis in his survey of Warwick public houses refers to a pub of this name being situated at 28 Woodhouse Street from 1835 until about 1870 but by 1874 it must have changed its name as the Queens Head Inn was listed at that address. HARE AND HOUNDS This pub is first recorded on the 1806 map of Warwick and was situated on Bridewell Lane although it was later listed as being at 13, Barrack Street. This area of Warwick was completely cleared in the early 1970s when the modern Library building was put up so unfortunately there is no trace of the pub left to describe and I have not yet found an old photograph showing it. Eleven proprietors have been recorded during the 110 years that I have records for the pub: 1806 William Pettifer 1828/29 & 1833 Thomas Clarke 1849 Richard Cole 1862 Susan Cole 1874-1896 Frederick Horne 1897-1898 S.J. Parfrey 1899-1904 Arthur Voss 1905-1907 Walter Page 1908-1909 Lewis Hickman 1910-1914 R.J. Bentley 1915 Ernest Jones William Pettifer was recorded as being the owner as well as landlord and it is quite likely that he was a member of the modern Pettifer family who are builders and property developers. The pub played host to carriers for a short while with services running to Birmingham on Tuesdays and Fridays and to Harbury on Saturdays in 1849 and then to Lighthorne on Saturdays in 1881. The pub was listed as closing in 1916 and was not recorded in 1917. HARP The 1806 map of Warwick shows a pub by this name on the south side of West Street. The owner was given as Samuel Eyres and the landlord was Thomas Eady. There appears to be no other reference to this name. HARROW Tallis also refers to a pub of this name being on The Saltisford after 1806. The 1806 map shows a pub named the Golden Horse on the East Side of the Saltisford but no other reference to the name has been found. It is possible that the Harrow was a new name for the pub but again no further mention of that name has been located so that suggestion is simply conjecture. HOBSON'S CHOICE This was a new pub built in 1961 when the Spinney Hill housing estate was erected. The names of licensees were no longer given in the trade directories by the time this pub was built. It changed its name to Images in 1984, but reverted to Hobson's Choice in 1991. HOP POLE Tallis records a pub of this name on Emscote in 1851 but no other reference to it has been found. Tallis suggests that it may have changed its name to the Britannia by 1874 which was listed at 11, Emscote Road. HORSE AND JOCKEY Tallis records this as a beerhouse existing from 1841 until 1872 although the only reference I have located was in the 1849 trade directory when it was run by John Whitmore. It stood on Linen Street. Kemp in his History of Warwick and its People published in 1905 states "The last house in Linen Street on the right close to the Common Gate was the Horse and Jockey".
