The RIBS OF BEEF from  at least 1743.

In 1898 the road frontage was demolished and rebuilt further back to allow tramways.

In 1928 the house was renamed the FYE BRIDGE TAVERN
and kept the name to closure 1959 when licence was surrendered with that of the RAILWAY STORES.
(For the MORNING STAR).

Reopened as the RIBS OF BEEF 09.08.1985.

The name was briefly spotted with the subtitle `DEBONED' December 1997 following a government ban on all beef being sold on the bone.

Voted Evening News Pub of the Year 2000.

Renovations in 2017 revealed a medieval wall dating back to pre 14th Century
