Hi this photo was taken during the war. It says on the sign “The star and Garter remains for ever more”. My great grandmother is on the far right of the photo and it was taken during the war.

Hi Deborah, if the photo was taken during the war it must be a different Star and Garter , the one on the corner of Great Hampton Row and and Brearley St was open throughout the 1950s and early 60s. Mossg

Repost of my pic of the Star & Garter under demolition mid-late 1960's.
Small lady with stick on left as you view is my Paternal Gran, Caroline Selvey (formerly SOUTHWELL, Nee Farmer).
Her step daughter Annie Savage (Nee Selvey) is next to her, along with 3 Demolition men and presumably 2 other old Regulars - At the time, they were both living (on different floors) of the Tower block opposite adjacent to St George's Churchyard

My (step) mom grew up not far from the Star & Garter and this was her dad's local. They were there until they were told they had to leave.

She doesn't remember much but she was able to recall the name of the pub. She seemed to recognised the picture in post #2.
