About The Dram Shop

The Dram Shop was, until 1960, the retail department of Henry Wilson & Son Ltd., wine and spirit merchants. Therefore a history of the pub is also a history of the company. The premises on the corner of Savile Street and George Street had been occupied by a spirit merchant, Richard Gelson, from at least 1831. Henry Wilson bought Gelson’s business in 1849 after Gelson had succumbed to a cholera outbreak in that year. The firm continued to expand and by 1877 Wilson had acquired the adjacent premises in Savile Street when he rebuilt them as offices and cellars. The new building, Savile House, was three stories high Almost two thirds of the ground floor of 60 & 61 Savile Street became a dram shop and this became the official name of the pub after the Second World War.

Now the pub has been brought back to life in keeping with heritage suggestion. offering various entertainment over the weekend and a wide selection of draught beers, wine and spirits. if your looking for somewhere with character, friendly staff and reasonable priced drinks than look no further than the Dram Shop 18 plus only.
