The Beaconsfield was a public house in Hughenden Road, which opened circa 1878 following the development of the aforementioned ​road​. The first licensee was Peter Fryer and there was substantial opposition to the granting of the license, primarily by the Langham Hotel which was situated approximately 106 yards away[1]. The pub closed in 2009 and was converted into five residential flats in 2012, on-street access to the basement flat being provided by means of forming a stairwell into what had been part of the cellar[2].


  • 1878: Mr. Peter Fryer
