A BRIEF HISTORY
Dating back to 1730, The Newman Arms appears in George Orwell’s novel Nineteen Eighty-Four where it was the model for the “Proles” pub. It featured again in his Keep the Aspidistra Flying, and in Michael Powell’s film Peeping Tom.
In 2017 the pub closed, and it was reopened by Truman’s Brewery in 2018,the first pub that Truman’s had opened since being re-founded in 2010. The menu reflects the food offering of previous landlord, Tracey Bird, with a focus on pies.
The building has an unofficial blue plaque in honour of the former landlord: “Joe Jenkins, ex-proprietor, poet, bon viveur and Old Git, regularly swore at everybody on these premises”. A prostitute in historical costume is painted onto a bricked-over upstairs window in reference to the building’s history as a brothel.
As much as we love to have you in the Newman Arms we really can’t be open 24 hours a day so how can you possibly enjoy your favourite Truman’s tipple in the comfort of your own home ?
Easy – Just visit our Trumans Brewery on-line shop where you can find a whole range of draught, cans & bottles that will be delivered straight to your door.
So come and have a look around and bring a bit of Truman’s to your home.
TAKE ME OUT !
