How Dunnings Bar retains a prominent reminder of its history

Today it is called Dunnings Bar but for many years the pub at 153 St Albans Road had another name – and this is how it looked around 90 years ago.

The Watford Observer has again teamed up with Watford Museum and is delighted to showcase some pictures from its archive.

The museum’s volunteer archivist Christine Orchard said: “There has been a pub at the corner of St Albans Road and Leavesden Road since the early 1840s, and it was known as the Queens Arms beer house – at this time the few buildings on St Albans Road were clustered around the newly opened railway. The building we see today, however, wasn’t constructed until the 1850s.

“This pub was first known as the Bricklayers Arms, but soon changed to the Queen’s Bays. By 1884 it had become the Stag and it retained this name for many years. Although the pub has a different name today, you can still see a stag, in terracotta, on the corner of the pub.

“This photograph dates from around the 1930s and is part of the Museum’s Benskin’s photo collection.”

Watford Museum is currently closed under government restrictions but you can still pay it a virtual visit at or find the museum on Facebook and Instagram @watfordmuseum
