The Myrtle Hall
Redcliff Hill

An article in the Bristol Echo, Tuesday, April 21 1903



To-day at the Bristol Police Court, Maud Butler, alias Howell, 28, was summoned that she, being on the black list, did obtain intoxicating liquor at Myrtle Hall, Redcliff.
Mr A. W. Tayler (Messrs Wansbrough & Co.), who prosecuted, stated that on Good Friday a well dressed man entered Myrtle Hall and in addition to ordering a drink for himself ordered a glass of port. The defendent subsequently entered the inn and drank the port.  Someone remarked to the landlord that she was on the black list, and the police were informed.
In reply to the magistrates’ clerk (Mr Holmes Gore), the landlord of the Myrtle Hall, Charles Gardiner, stated that if photographs of those on the black list were supplied they would be of great assistance. There were some sixteen on the list, and only three were men. The defendent was sent to prison for 14 days for another offence and for obtaining intoxicating liquor she was fined 10s or 14 days.

No longer a pub by the first world war the building was demolished in 1969 when Redcliff Hill was turned in to a dual carriageway.
