The Beaten Docket

Cricklewood’s history is on display all around this pub.

50–56 Cricklewood Broadway, Cricklewood, London, NW2 3ET

A beaten docket is a losing ticket, often associated with horse racing – a feature of this area in the late 19th century. Attracting thousands of race-goers, Kingsbury Races were held five times a year, on land leased by William Perkins Warner, proprietor of the nearby Old Welsh Harp.
