Recording the slow, sad death of the British pub
Another modern estate-style pub in an area dominated by tower blocks on the southern fringes of the city near King’s Norton. Take one step back and it’s open again.
Surely its name all but guarantees a happy ending? And the red and white part of the building on the rhs must have doubled up as an air traffic control tower?
It used to have another name, but can't remember what (The Gladiator sounds familiar, but I could be wrong!). Anyway, the previous incarnation closed because of a fire and then reopened as The Phoenix!
