The Unity

The Unity, Stockport, Cheshire

A redbrick pub with attractive stonework prominently situated on the busy A6 right opposite the access road to Stockport station. It is believed that Robinson’s Brewery may still have plans to resurrect this one.

The Sozzled Sausage, Uttoxeter, Staffordshire

A relatively modern opening on the town’s Market Place, previously called the Academy, that appears to have had a chequered career.

The Myerscough

The Myerscough, Samlesbury, Lancashire

An attractive rural pub that has for a long been a prominent landmark on the A59 east of Preston. The fact that Robinson’s have removed their signgage suggests they have no plans to reopen it themselves, but it’s hard to believe that a pub cannot be viable in this location.

The Countess’s Arms

A large roadside pub on the A41 south of Newport, that has obviously received considerable investment in the relatively recent past, but according to StreetView has been closed since at least 2009.

The Dane Valley

The Dane Valley, Margate, Kent

An impressive three-storey inter-wars estate pub on a housing estate on the south side of the town.

The Crown

The Crown, Inchbrook, Gloucestershire

A three-storey pub in a rather sorry state, situated on a sharp bend on the A46 on the fringes of the Cotswolds.

The Pheasant

The Pheasant, Welland, Worcestershire

A white-painted pub with a portico entrance prominently situated at a busy rural crossroads. Still looks very much open and inviting on StreetView.

The Railway

The Railway, Whitchurch, Shropshire

A distinctive Edwardian pub in an Arts and Crafts style standing on a busy crossroads halfway between the town centre and the station. It appears to have been converted to housing, but still carries some elements of Greenalls signage.

The Becconsall

The Becconsall, Hesketh Bank, Lancashire

A large inter-wars roadhouse-style pub, still in Tetley livery, that seems somewhat incongruous well off the main roads in a West Lancashire village.

The Swan

The Swan, Ashton-under-Lyne, Lancashire

A double-fronted terraced pub, still in John Smith’s livery, on the main road between Ashton and Stalybridge. Also note the impressive green tiling on the front of the still-open White Horse a few doors to the right.

The Waterloo

The Waterloo, Stockport, Cheshire

A solid redbrick former Robinson’s pub south of the town centre just off Hillgate. The pub was situated opposite the former Strawberry Studios and in the past has seem many famous musicians enjoying a drink. Closed in August 2016 and still open on StreetView.
