Southwark St Saviour pub history index

A listing of historical London public houses, Taverns, Inns, Beer Houses and Hotels in Southwark St Saviour, London.

The Talbot Inn, previously the Tabard Inn (1669) was demolished in 1873. For later detail, see the Old Tabard.

The pub was originally called The Tabard, built in 1307 for the Abbot of Hyde (a monastery in Winchester) as a base for his London business.

In the Prologue to The Canterbury Tales, (c1380) Geoffery Chaucer describes the characters meeting at The Tabard, before setting off to on their pilgrimage.

During the Dissolution of the Monastries (1536-41) The Tabard was taken from the Abbot and passed into private ownership.

It was destroyed in the Great Fire Of Southwark (26.5.1676) along with most of the other inns in the area. It was quickly rebuilt and was at this point renamed as the Talbot.

During the 18th & 19th centuries it flourished as a coaching Inn, but business declined with the coming of the railways and it though the pub continued the rest of the building became a parcel office for the train companies.

The building was demolished in 1873, and a smaller pub named the Old Tabard was built facing the main road at 85 Borough High Street **.
