The Joker

Hamstead Road

The Joker was built around 1971. It was closed for a while in July 2007 but later re-opened  and in December 2007 there were plans for a smoking area to be created at the side of the pub. By September 2009 it was closed and the owners, Enterprise Inns sold it for development..  In January 2010 a Tesco Direct store opened on the site utilising much of the original building.
