The Bowling Green

The Bowling Green


This Wetherspoons Pub features broadcast live news, a licensed outdoor area, step free access and wifi. Children are welcome and baby change facilities are available. There is an extensive range of cask and keg beers as well as a wide selection of bottled beers, wine and cider. The Bowling Green has a full menu from pub snacks to full meals. Open early for breakfast.

Although it sounds modern, this pub has a long history. In 1821, the upper storey of 18 Bondgate was used as a place of worship by the newly formed Society of Independents, now the United Reformed Church. In 1825, the whole building became the Bowling Green Inn. The inn’s earliest recorded licensees are Hannah Cawood in 1829 and Joseph Mallinson in 1834. Much more recently, Trevor and Judith Wallis ended their time at the Bowling Green, auctioning their numerous collectables previously on display inside the pub. The collection included a full-size crocodile and other stuffed animals, clocks, musical instruments and propellers.
