Dating back to the 1850’s when a James Parkman was Landlord it was known as United Flags until 1900 when it was renamed the Lord Roberts in honour of the famous Victorian Soldier. Panton’s Wareham Brewery leased the premise from December 1890 to 1892 when it was brought by the Scrase’s Star Brewery. During the period of ownership under Panton’s their was a lot of trouble with the landlord a one Eugene Goumez who having twenty years experience as a landlord had a major falling out with the Brewery , he was replaced after the Chief Constable of Southampton in 1891 recommended that the pub’s licence should be withdrawn. Scrase’s Star Brewery sold it onto Welsh’s Hyde Abbey Brewery again being sold to Cooper’s Brewery in 1929 and finally Watney’s Brewery before becoming a free house in 1986 and changing its name to The Strand, as the Lord Robert’s it had become a notorious watering hole for both local queens and ones off of the Liners that used to dock in the port. It closed in 2012 and was demolished to be replaced by a block of flats. *
