The Briton's Protection frontageThe Britons Protection on Great Bridgewater Street in the City Centre is one of a handful of city centre pubs that is listed on the CAMRA National Inventory of Historic Pubs.  In June this year the building will have been there as a pub for 200 years and the current owner will have been there for thirty years.  This calls for a big celebration.
