I have already discussed Stony Stratford Inns in part in this post on the Radcliffe Trust. Here I say a few things about some of the bigger and better known inns. North of St Mary Magdalen, latterly the site of St Paul's School which then became Fegan's orphanage was The Horseshoe Inn. Ratliffe identifies this site with an Inn called The Waggon. Whether or not this were re-naming of the Horsehoe is unclear.
The site of the Three Swans, mostly of 18th century construction, is now an hotel The Different Drummer.
The site of the Almshouses was apparently occupied by two taverns, one called The Waggon and Horses, the other known as The Gate, although the last one may have gone under the earlier name of The Angel.
On the Calverton side of the High Street the first in that one encountered was The Angel, more recently The Barley Mow. This is the first building from the river and is now a private residence. It is thought that the earliest known tavern Grik's Herber or The Greek's Tavern was located here. Thomas le Grik appears as witness to a document granting two acres of land in Calverton, dated 1296.
The Lyon (later the Fox and Hounds) was a little further south near the site of the Eleanor Cross.
Moving south we come to the Cross Keys (which may have once been St Peter's Keys) and The Talbot
In the main part of the High Street stands The George and The White Horse.
On the corner of Horse Fair Green is a house that used to be The Royal Oak. Ratliffe says that there was once an Old Royal Oak nearby.
In the late 19th century, as Stony Stratford grew towards Wolverton, several pubs sprung up on the Wolverton Road: The Foresters, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Case is Altered and The Prince of Wales.
This is not a conclusive history. There is plainly a lot of detail yet to be provided.
