    It became the Old Bill in 1995, prior to that it was The Townhouse which was also a restaurant but it also had a separate bar called The Coal Hole underneath, so maybe The Coal Hole is on your database Al?

    And of course, way back it was a Police Station, hence the name.

    The Old Bill itself is actually an Italian restaurant/bistro, but within it there is a jazz bar called Letsby Avenue.

    I'll check it out next time I'm in Oldham to see if it's free to enter and also whether it should really be The Letsby Avenue Jazz Bar @ The Old Bill
    or simply Letsby Avenue Jazz Bar.

    Thanks for your help Rob,

    The Coal Hole is not on my database for Oldham.

    I probably took a photo of it before it opened and then never got round to doing it later in the day,which surprises me as i did try to do every pub in Oldham and managed 160 pubs there,this did not include towns nearby like Royton or Failsworth.

    Cheers Alan

    I recently took a photo of this pub in Birmingham,the pub is called Catherine O Donovan,this is the name of the landlady who runs it,would any members know the originall name of this pub.

    I also went in the Windsor in the middle of Birmingham,when did this pub open,i did a pub called the Windsor back in 1987 and wondered if it was the same pub.

    I would appreciate any help with these pubs.

    Cheers Alan

    Hi Alan

    I will be doing the Highgate pubs soon - I have done most before, but will be doing notes this time! I actually play footy around the corner from it every Thu. Catherine O Donovan's, if you ever find it open, also carries the name of The Blarney Castle on the sign, if that is what you mean.

    On my recent trip to Birmingham i tried to photo pubs that i had done there back in 1984 and 1987,i did lots of pubs in the Hihggate area and wondered if this one matched some of the pubs i could not find.

    These pubs were the Wrens Nest, Pig and Whistle, White Swan, Oddfellows Arms and Australian Bar.

    The White Swan, I think, is the Eden's Bar?

    The Windsor was the Windsor in the 80s - I am sure, I used to go to the then trendy Le Pub opposite to it, back then

    Billy's Bar

    That place is a hostel or something now - it was Billy's Bar on this site - The Malt Shovel in years gone by.

    Thanks Soup,

    I went in a pub called Billys after going in the Old Wharf,i will now add that photo to my database.

    I have also done Le pub,there are loads of trendy pubs i did in that area in the 80s not sure what happened to them.

    Thanks Alan

    I suspect the Victoria is this one The Victoria Inn , quite a bit of remodelling and an extension but that crooked roof line is the same, as are the chimneys.


    No idea about the other is the name visible is the original? The photo numbers suggest it is probably another Dudley pub but Soupy will probably know it.
