1912 trade journal: Ed. Martin - Red Gate Inn (Beer House)

Russell Street named after Sir John Russell
(also see the Sir John Russell public house in Trentham Road)

In the early 1870s the name “Red Gate” was adopted by G B Martin who opened a beerhouse in a terrace house in Russell Street, Dresden. The house was advertised for sale in the Staffordshire Advertiser on 10 May 1873. Although it was described as the “Old Red Gate Inn” there was in fact no connection between this new venture and the previous old public house of the same name on Trentham Road.
