Belvidere Arms, Belvidere Terrace, Southampton, Hampshire

Southampton pub history index

In September 1868 on being leased for an annual rent of Ł20 from Mr Thomas Bradley by Welsh’s Lion Brewery it turned from a private residence into a beer house, it’s address then being 1 Grace’s Buildings. It was sold on to the Old Shirley Brewery who later sold it on to Barlow’s Victoria Brewery, when it closed in 1931 it was under the ownership of Brickwood’s Brewery, after which it was used as an office for the Phoenix Coal Company, until it’s demolition in the 1960’s You can see from the position of the Gasometers that it’s site now sits under St Mary’s Stadium. Originally it was called Belvedere Inn (note spelling), it was also locally known as the Mud & Duck, due to one of the landlords keeping ducks on a muddy piece of land next to the Pub, the Belvidere Arms and the Belvidere Inn from 1908. *

Notoriety: Not a customer friendly establishment, in September 1914 the then landlord Mr R Needham was fined 5/- for assaulting one!  *
