Some time back in the 1980s I was having a drink in the New Star when the phone rang behind the bar. The barman answered it then shouted out, "the police are on their way". Within a very short while my mate and I were the only ones still in the pub!

Has anyone discovered this site? They offer a 'colorizer' facility. I've tried it with the above mentioned New Star. Edited by Midland Red, 18th Feb 2021 12:47 pm (Copied to “Computer matters” thread)

The last time I went in there, it was run by Bobby Arthur, the Coventry boxer.

Belushi, sometimes 'Time gentlemen please' doesn't always work.

Reminds me of a time years ago when at a night out in the Walsgrave Club, the shout went out that some factory night shift had walked out and the place emptied of housewives!!

Recently purchased this antique bottle It is embossed with SYDENHAM PALACE, COVENTRY. It also has T. OWEN embossed around the top. It is a moulded separate top Imperial Half Pint, with the bottle makers number 849 on the bottom. Thomas Owen was licensee from 1886 to 1913, and the pub closed in 1971 and was demolished. Was it common for licensees to have their own bottles moulded?
