The Royal Oak

The Royal Oak, Stockport, Cheshire

A small pub opposite Robinson’s brewery, that was largely reconstructed from an older building about twenty years ago. Another victim of Robinson’s recent cull of Stockport pubs.

The Firebird

The Firebird, Edgbaston, Birmingham

A chunky 1930s pub in a housing estate tucked away between the Bristol and Pershore Roads. Take a step back and it turns into a new development of flats.

The Hellfire Club

The Hellfire Club, Harpurhey, Manchester

A distinctive semi-circular building, formerly a pub known as the Junction. In the early 2000s it was ill-advisedly taken over by Beartown Brewery of Congleton.

The Draycott Arms

The Draycott Arms, Draycott-in-the-Moors, Staffordshire

A sizeable whitewashed pub prominently situated on a bend on a now-bypassed section of the A50 trunk road. Still appears to be thriving on StreetView. The new road opened in the 1990s so that can’t really be blamed.

The Swan

The Swan, Radcliffe, Lancashire

A four-square pub that appears to have had a new brick facade added early in the last century. Note the signs inviting you to “Run This Pub”.

The Traveller’s Rest

The Traveller’s Rest, Runcorn, Cheshire

A handsome brick-built former Greenalls pub with sandstone mullions in a leafy spot at one of the town’s highest points. Its secluded location means there isn’t a direct view on StreetView, so the link is to the aerial view, which shows several cars on the car park.

The Honiton Inn

The Honiton Inn, Exeter, Devon

An attractive gabled pub standing amongst modern office blocks just to the west of the city centre.

The Rainsough Brew

The Rainsough Brew, Pendlebury, Lancashire

Formerly the Staff of Life, a modern estate-style pub whose name is a pun on that of the steep hill on which it stands.

The Colliers Arms

The Colliers Arms, Radcliffe, Lancashire

A small roadside former Thwaites pub, just down the road from the Turf Hotel. The StreetView images seem to have been taken in fog.
