Ribs of Beef

The original building, dating back to the 14th century, was destroyed in the Great Fire of 1507 and rebuilt. The first licensee was recorded in 1743.

It was bought by Young & Crawshay's in 1818 and in 1928 the name changed to Fye Bridge Tavern. Bullard's took over Young & Crawshay's in 1958 and closed the pub in 1959. It stayed closed until August 1985 when it re-opened as the Ribs of Beef with Roger and Anthea Cawdron as licensees. Most real ale pubs at the time had floorboards and benches but the thick carpet and leather seats appealed to the locals and professional clientele who required more comfort. Serving a range of cask ales from all over the UK and excellent food and wines it quickly established itself as 'the city's favourite local' Its mission statement is 'to ensure our customers are happy and satisfied with our service, enjoy our beer and food and will return not as a stranger but a friend'.
