This page is a bare-bones entry for a specific location. More detailed information may eventually be added...
- location: Temple Street, Westgate, Huddersfield
- status: probably does not exist
- category: public house, beerhouse, inn, etc.
The exact location is currently uncertain, but believed to have been in the vicinity of the top section of Westgate, near to the junction with New North Road and West Parade, in an area formerly known as Temple Street. An ink drawing from 1844 appears to show the hotel as being on the southern side of Westgate.
Likely opened circa 1837 when the Druids Arms Inn was "demolished for the new road", with George Mitchell (c.1801-1856) transferring his licence.
Richard Oastler (1789-1861) is known to have addressed large crowds from outside the Druid's Hotel and called Mitchell a "good, faithful, and warm-hearted friend".
Possibly demolished in 1846.
