Quite right. It's a terrible place anyway. Everyone should steer well clear.

It was also meet up pub for some of Villa's naughty boys in the 80s.

I remember those days. We used to get the 46 bus to Perry Barr and stop off in there on the way to Villa Park. Popular with rascals until the early 80s although some of the old timers would still drink in there for a few years. Luckily we missed the day Chelsea stormed in and and started throwing glasses around 1978-9.

Somebody organised a coach form there for Rotterdam and they had black and white Crown & Cushion t shorts printed.

The last time I went in there was probably 7-8 years ago and it was very quiet for a match day, maybe 25-30 people in there. It was clear it was on its last legs.
