Another characteristic inter-wars Midlands roadhouse, facing a roundabout close to the Birmingham boundary.
Still looking quite appealing on StreetView, you might have thought this pub’s situation close to the town centre, Burton College and the River Trent had some potential, but sadly not.
A four-square, three-storey former Robinson’s pub opposite ASDA on the congested A6 through this busy suburban shopping centre. You can just make out the painted-over name on the sign on the gable-end. Since the StreetView image was taken this pub has been demolished.
A modern pub in a prominent position on the old main road through the Potteries that surely still has some potential. Still open on the StreetView image taken in October 2012 so it has only closed very recently.
A sizeable inter-wars Brewer’s Tudor pub next to Widnes bus garage which has been taken over by Westminster Fireplaces. It is now (April 2013) boarded up, so that venture didn’t succeed either.
