  1. It was ealy 80s , the people who bought the peacock also took over the old bank and extended the restaurant and turned it into The Coach House , iit was deffinately before 1984 , if I remember rightly the people who opened it also owned the Venus Steak place on the moor
  2. it did'nt become a bank , it was converted from a bank into a restaurant ---------- Post added 25-10-2018 at 16:34 ---------- If I remeber rightly they had the Ellesmere pub then moved to one in Beighton I think

  5. There was a mick stone lived in coal aston who used to be a butcher then started his own window cleaning business , not just one man with bucket and ladder but a proper business Don't know if he still lives there.
  6. Hi I first joined Pitsmoor W M C in 1965 and later on joined The Arundel Ex Serv club, of which I am still a member. in the 60s , 70s , 80s i used the clubs regularly but in recent years not so much. There used to be some very good acts to see, for free and we had some great times. If you want to check a club out that has bucked the trend over the years , then the Arundel is the one to go to.
  7. It was a restaurant before the Coach House , it was the Peacock chinease restaurant that opened in the 60s , but the question on the original post was " does anyone remember the Coach House " and that opened in 1980
