I'm sure I have wrote about my dislike of [censored] & peas on this thread somewhere earlier. I used to fetch them from Great Lister St for my mother and the rest of the family and no matter how hungry I was I wouldn't touch them. I usually ended up with an egg on the nights they had [censored].

No call for apologies for what was a simple mistake, you can be assured of one thing and that is I will "keep up the good work" as I consider it a labour of love.

Hi Phil & all
 
Whilst I was sorting out some paper work I came across an old list of pubs in and around Nechell's district that I had forgotten about. It was researched by myself and the late Diane Woodhouse (nee Griffiths) at that time in 1993 she was the chair person of the Nechell's Historical Society.
I am posting the names of the eighty pubs I would be grateful if anyone has any info, or pictures of the pubs.
 
This is the list as follows in alphabetical order :-
 
1   The Albion (nick named the empty)                        Trevor St/Johnston St corner
 
2    The Albion Vaults                                               Cato St North/Nechell's Place corner
 
3    The Army & Navy                                               Ashted Row/Gt Brook St
 
4    The Ashted Tavern                                            Ashed Row
 
5    The Ashted Hamlet                                            Vauxhall Road    (built approx 1960's)
 
6     The Beehive                                                    Bloomsbury St/Nechell's Place
 
7     The Beehive                                                    ? Scolefield St
 
8     The Bell                                                          ? Gt Lister St
 
9     The Black Horse                                               ? Cromwell St
 
10    The Bloomsbury Tavern                                     ? Heneage St
 
11    The Blue Lamp                                                 ? Frances St
 
12    The Brewery Tavern (the Pretty Ladies)               Bloomsbury St
 
13    The Brewery Tavern                                         ? Scolefield St
 
14    The Britannia                                                   Nechell's Place/Freeman's St
 
15    The Britannia                                                   Inkerman St
 
16    The Britannia                                                   ? Heneage St
 
17    The Britannia                                                   Bullock St/Proctor St Corner
 
18    The Builder's Arms                                            ? Cromwell St
 
19    The Bulls Head                                                ? Bloomsbury St

I have gone back to 1937 and though I can find pubs with the names of those marked with question marks they are not in the street as named. I will go back further, but as Mikejee will tell you some pubs with names that were used by the locals were only listed in Kelly's as beer retailers. How far back does this list go?

I found a Bloomsbury Tavern at 127 Heneage St in 1903 but that all so far. I think you will find a lot of photos of the pubs you have mentioned on this thread or the old pubs of Brum thread already, but I will see what I can come up with.

Regarding the Black horse in Cromwell St (?).  The problem is you canít look at every year of Kellys, and, as Phil says, often pubs are listed just as beer retailer (which could be an off licence.
There is a beer retailer listed in 1932 at 143 Cromwell St. However the electoral roll lists it as The Black Horse stroes, so, for then at least, it appears to be an off licence.

Hi pudding
 
Once again I checked 1937 and 1903 and I found a Freeholders Arms at 97 Scholefield St, a Gunmakers Arms at 20 Cromwell St, and The Justice at 158 Scholefield St. No luck with any of the others, perhaps Mike will be able to come up with something.
 
When you have finished your list I will see what photos I can come up with.
