Southampton pub history index

Built as a private residence circa 1810, it did not become a pub until 1866. In the early 19th Century it was owned by Betty Craven, the Margravine of Anspach, although she never lived there, (it is often stated erroneously that she did). The Margravine lived at another house on West Quay called Anspach House, which burned down in 1870. The street sign Anspach Place on the outside wall of the pub is a reminder of the building's original owner. The Wheatsheaf Brewery of Upper back of the Walls brought the building in 1866 and turned it into a pub in the early 1900’s Forder’s Hampshire Brewery brought the pub, it was taken over again by Brickwood’s Brewery in 1925, falling under the Whitbread Brewery umbrella when they acquired Brickwood’s in 1971. It has had a chequered path since then opening and closing on a regular basis. It is now a Hotel called the Pig in the Wall, when it was built it overlooked the sea and small boat yards now it over looks a hotel car park. *
