The Russell Inn has been a pub since 1832, when it was given to Jane Slade as a wedding
present by her father who owned the boat yard, now C toms and Son. They had seen
a rise in trade in their yard and saw the opportunity for a third pub in the village,
The Lugger was already trading on the Quay and The Stag Inn was situated at the top
of Betty Woons Steps on West Street, it subsequently closed later in the 1800’s.
The Russell Inn went from strength to strength benefiting greatly from the seafaring
trade sent their way from the family boat yard.
We look forward to your visit …..
The Russell Inn was named after Lord John Russell, Prime Minister of the time, famous
for steering the Reform Act of 1832, which introduced wide ranging changes to the
electoral system and gave many more people the right to vote.
