Hi, anyone got any photos or memories of the above? It was the first themed pub I ever went into in Grayswood Avenue in the early 70s, the pub was divided into various bars. Around the World in 80 days was one I can recall, Pukka Sahib was another. Cheers

Yes, I lived round the corner from it, and can remember a hot air balloon etc in the room I used at that time.

Oh, gosh that takes me back a few years (too many to mention) We had our first house in Lincroft Cres. when we were first married so that was our local watering hole. It had a bowls strip on the back lawn in its early days and it was the Three Spires when we were there - 1961 to 74. It must have been The Jules Verne when we left, revamped with different eateries around the world, that figures. Thanks for the memories MR. Cheers I have seen a few photos pop up. It looks a nice place situated on the corner (well it did, don't know about these days)

I spent alot of time in the 'Spires' in the 80's. My parents lived in Allesley and at that time the same crowd went to the same pubs on different nights of every week. Most Fri, Sat and Sundays I at least started in there. Always remember getting back to Cov after the '87 final and the landlord Ray dancing on his own pool tables!

Hi Roger. After all these years. Dear Mrs. Tomlinson, my children's dinner lady at St. John's School. A lovely neighbour, used to love holidaying at The Lakes. Tried to coax my son to eat his dinner many a time. We used to live right opposite on the corner, No.75. Thumbs up

I used the Verne for a while in the early seventies. I'd just moved into Craven Street and my neighbours used it because the clientele was younger than the local pubs. A lot of the lads in Whoberley, who were around my age - early 20's - used it. The atmosphere was always nice and friendly and we often used it as a meeting point before heading into town.

Do any of you remember a short woman named Iris and her Asian husband Elas ? Number 66 I think. My boys joked that if Elas's last name was Tickband his full name would be Elas Tickband

As the Jules Verne, I believe that it was a unique pub. The decor was superb, the Shanghai Waterfront having the prow of a wooden sailing ship projecting into it and barrels to sit on. Another area had saloon bar swing doors to pass through and shop fronts of 'wild west' character as its walls. In the room with the hot air balloons suspended from the ceiling there were a set of railway carriage compartments at one end , just for twosomes, I think.

Hi, just found this site after searching online for the Jules Verne. I remember going there when it was first opened and pretending I was 18! I recognise a couple of people in the photo, especially Mick Morby, 2nd from the right. Knew him for years and used to live a few doors away from him on Allesley Old Rd.
