It was called The Mexborough Arms before Wetherspoons took it over. The first pub, this is the second, was built as a coaching inn and it is said that there was a gallows on the site of the old bowling green. The pub was extended in the late 70's, creating Fox's nightclub which was very popular. I went to see John Lowe, Leighton Rees, Cliff Lazarenko and Eric Bristow all play an exhibition match there one night (78/79) and the place was packed. It suffered a bit when the Shoulder of Mutton closed as a lot of the people causing the Shoulder's problems became regulars but since then the landlord has worked hard to keep it the decent pub it is.
