Medieval type pub

Recommended Posts

Can anybody help me remember a name of a pub?

It was located in the City center,somewhere behind The Tavern in The Town if I remember rightly(the road leading from the Market Square towards the Theater Royal).It had a medieval theme,you went down some stairs to get in and there was a well at the bottom with a skeleton in it!

I cannot for the life of me remember what it was called and it's now 'doin' me 'ed in'

I should also add that it was around 1987-1990ish.

I think you're both talking about the same place, it's now been knocked down and replaced by a shop/office. It was more or less next door to what is now Selectadisc.

I'm sure it was called Loxley Hall. I definately remember the skeleton down the well!!

Does anyone remember the Blitz diner on St James St. A WW11 themed bar?

Talking of 'themed' pubs,,,, we worked for a brewery that were doing 'themed' pubs out of town.

The first was (I think) SEA WORLD - it 'featured' a shark bursting through a wall in the lounge,,,,

The second was (another think) JUNGLE WORLD - it featured a lion bursting through the wall,,,,

Can't recall:

where they were

how long they lasted

if they did any more.

They were garbage places even before they werre opened !

The Camelot Club / the old Hippo / The Bomb was on Bridlesmith Gate.

Robin Hood Tavern was built & knocked down where the Classic Cinema was , which is now the walk in entrance of the Euro car park.

There was/is a pub "The Sea around us" somewhere near Loughborough? massive tanks as "windows" like being in a sub,going bact to 1960's though. I thought that blitz themed pub was The Moot Hall corner of friar lane? !rotfl! I know we shouldn't laugh, not sure if true or a myth but my mum always maintained they eventually found the body of the landlord in the wrecked Burtons tailors across the road, for days people had thought it was a shop window dummy!

I went in "The Sea Around Us" many years ago - it was rumored that Roger Moore hung out there!

as the classic cinema i saw "hanger 18" there in about 1980, followed by "beverley hills cop" about four years later.

as the robin hood tavern, in the late 80's they had a heavy metal disco on saturday afternoons the dj was none other than freddy ballinger, the guy who bombarded radio trent with his system to try to get a job there.

Robin Hood Tavern. Went down the stairs to the bar. Or fell. Usually the last pub stop before Zhivagos. Remember the floors in the bar being extremely sticky and never used the toilets there!
