HISTORY OF ‘THE BRICKLAYERS’
The Bricklayers is one of the oldest pubs in Poole, established in 1833. ‘The Bricklayers’ as its name suggests was built for the builders of St Peters Church, located opposite. Despite the pub, being small at the time, it consisted of two bars, a public bar and a private members bar. It also had living quarters for the builders, next door. The garden was extensive, which was a renowned over the years for being a music festival site, with a bowling alley.
The Bricklayers extensive refurbishment was undertaken in August 2019. The aim was to enhance its original features, but with a modern twist, and extend the bar and kitchen, to make it cosy and comfortable, for everyone to feel relaxed and welcome. The Bricklayers main focus is to continue to be the local’s community pub, as it has since 1833, but bring the food and drinks up to the demand of the modern-day society.
The Bricklayers is owned and run by a local family, so always has a personal friendly approach, and listen to their customers, to be able to change and adapt to be one of the best pubs in Dorset!
