The Baker’s Arms

The Baker’s Arms, Buxton, Derbyshire

A small local pub just off the centre of this popular tourist town. In years gone by was renowned for the quality of its Draught Bass.

The Greyhound

The Greyhound, Llangunllo, Radnorshire

A small redbrick pub, typical of many in rural Wales, in a remote Borders village. Closed in 2006.

The Two Bobbies

The Two Bobbies, South Norwood, Greater London

A compact Brewer’s Tudor pub on a South London high street, now being used as a second-hand car lot. I have no idea where the name comes from, by the way.

The Beeches

The Beeches, Northfield, Birmingham

A massive, imposing 1930s Brewer’s Tudor pub on a council estate, now sadly a burned-out shell.

The Milehouse

The Milehouse, Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffs

Now “Buffet Island”, an example of the trend to convert prominent pubs into Asian restaurants. This impressive 1930s roadhouse by a roundabout on the main A34 through Newcastle was formerly a Berni Inn.

The Horse & Jockey

The Horse & Jockey, Helsby, Cheshire

Despite a prominent position on the main road through a prosperous commuter village, with no shortage of nearby houses, it would seem this ex-Greenalls pub is now closed for good.

The Berkshire

The Berkshire, Higher Blackley, Manchester

This impressive 1930s roadhouse has in fact been flattened since the StreetView car went past. Looking at the nearby houses, it may well have been quite an upmarket establishment when first built - the council tower blocks to the east only arrived in the 1960s.

The Old Bull’s Head

The Old Bull’s Head, Little Hucklow, Derbyshire

Described in the Good Beer Guide as “a connoisseur’s pub”, and a long-standing entry, this pub closed in 2005.

The Railway

The Railway, Heatley, near Lymm, Cheshire

This traditional, multi-roomed pub was selected for the 2008 Good Beer Guide, but closed, seemingly for good, in the Autumn of 2007 shortly after the Guide came out.

The Pear Tree

The Pear Tree, Rugeley, Staffordshire

An impressive 1950s roadhouse-cum-estate pub on the main A460 road heading south from Rugeley towards Cannock.
