A HEREFORDSHIRE pub is to reopen under a new name.

The Ducker bar in South Street, Leominster is being redecorated and will from now on be known as ‘the Quarters.’

The pub was previously known as the Ducking Stool and the Queens Head.


The new name is partly in reference to a section of the building the bar inhabits, which used to be servants’ quarters, and is also a nod to the fact that there are four new people taking over the pub.

Although nothing is set in stone as of yet, it seems as if the Quarters will be a hub for entertainment, with their events calendar reportedly already beginning to fill. They are also set to offer a variety of drinks including cocktails as part of their new vision for the Leominster boozer.

The previous publicans, who ran the Ducker for over six years, publicly announced their departure earlier this year on August 26.

Whilst many locals have mourned the loss of the original pub, excitement is now growing for its next chapter.
