The Stormy Petrel

The Stormy Petrel, Tern Hill, Shropshire

An imposing 1930s roadhouse that looks as though it might have doubled as a residential hotel. In the past was well-known for biker meets. It has been demolished in recent weeks.

This is the 600th pub to be featured on this blog.

The Bull & Stirrup

The Bull & Stirrup, Chester

An impressive former Higson’s pub just to the north of the city walls, once famous for its tiled mural of “Edgar’s Eight”. Since the StreetView image was taken it has been restored to life as a Wetherspoon’s.

The Robin Hood

The Robin Hood, Newark, Nottinghamshire

Once the town’s smartest hotel, it has been derelict since 1998 and is now scheduled for demolition. Note the illuminated neon sign just below the roofline.

The Angel

The Angel, Preston, Lancashire

A double-fronted pub on a side street just west of the town centre, which I understand is soon to be reopened.

The Spotted Cow

The Spotted Cow, Huddersfield, Yorkshire

A substantial stone-built inter-wars pub on the main Rochdale road to the west of the town, still displaying Bass livery.

The Greyhound

The Greyhound, Bromsgrove, Worcestershire

An attractive gabled pub on a corner site on the main Worcester Road to the south of the town. Still open on Streetview in July 2016.
