Appeal for Historic Photos. Ye Olde Punch Bowl Inn is purported to be one of the oldest, licensed public houses in the area –licensed back in 1740 – and has since provided shelter, food and drink to travellers from all over the UK. Before this it was a toll house with the original town courthouse opposite – which is now a residential property – Proprietor Adam Giles adds “From the days the Punch Bowl was a hundred house and the courthouse opposite the pub, believed to be a holding area for criminals on trial by the Earl of the estate, as well as stables and now the modern pub that it is – As part of our forthcoming renovation, we are keen to gather as much historic information as possible from locals – from photos taken in the 1800’s if any remain, through the 1900’s – We have one dating back to around 1960, but there must be earlier ones surviving. Even sketches and paintings of the pub – Our appeal is for photos and historic documents relating to both inside and outside the building, so we can feature them in our new bar area as part of our January refit.”

Anyone with photos, documents or reverences to the Punch Bowl’s of the centuries has been asked to either call in the Punch Bowl to share them with the owners, or email them – they can event post photos on their facebook page: The Punch Bowl Inn Bridgnorth.
