A little history of The Golden Bowler…

The Golden Bowler Pub StubbingtonBuilt around 1920 as a private residence by Isaac Hammond, The Golden Bowler is positioned on the south side of Stubbington village and to the west of HMS Daedalus Airfield, an important part of Britain’s air strategy during the 2nd World War.

The original house travelled through various guises of residency under the Hammond ownership until 1966, when it was bought and converted to a private members club by the “Clifts”, from his “Golden Bowler” retirement fund on leaving the RAF. They converted it to a Pub & Restaurant in the mid 1970’s and then sold it on in 1980 to Noel & Mary Pearce and partners. After 36 years, the pub remains in the same family, with daughter Georgie & son-in-law Kevin at the helm.
