Pubs in England named Blacksmiths Arms – Petefire Artist Blacksmith

Have you ever had a drink in a pub with blacksmith in its name? Or is there one in your local area? We’ve got one called Blacksmith Arms in nearby St Albans, Herts. 

Pandemic update
We hope that the pubs we’ve listed will survive through the pandemic crisis. English pubs were already experiencing tough times, so we expect that unfortunately they won’t all make it out the other side. We’ll do our best to keep our Blacksmith Arms pubs list as up to date as possible.

It’s sad that pubs in England and throughout the UK are closing. We thought it would be good to make a list. There’s still quite a few Blacksmith Arms around – we’ve identified nearly 40. As part of our research we did come across some that are now closed.

We’ve done our pubs in England named Blacksmiths Arms list, using mainly internet searches. Although we’ve spent a good bit of time and done our best we expect that we’ve missed some.

We’ve started off with pubs in England named Blacksmiths Arms, we also intend to add ones in Scotland, Ireland, Eire and Wales. Each pub is listed by county, we believe that there’s 48 counties in England, some counties appear to have more than one, according to our searches quite a few don’t have any – we’ve listed these at the bottom of the page.

The Petefire Artist Blacksmith forge is now in Chiswell Green, a village on the outskirts of St Albans in South West Hertfordshire. The Blacksmith Arms is a large pub in the centre of St Albans. There’s also The Three Hammers in Chiswell Green – our listing is for pubs called Blacksmiths Arms, so it doesn’t strictly fit the rules, as it was a blacksmith forge until the mid-1800s, we’ve added it to our pubs page.

This was reputed to be England’s smallest inn, now closed. A little flint and thatched building alongside the River Cerne is typical of many old buildings in the area.

The building was formerly a blacksmith’s forge, and reputedly King Charles II asked for a drink when it was still a forge; when he was told that it had no licence to sell beer, the king promptly granted it one, so that the smith could oblige.

Sadly, the pub closed a few years ago. Here are photos on Flickr.
