Hello exsalfordbridge
Yes Ernie was a great bloke I first met him when he worked on the forcourt at Stocklands Marsh Hill, we had some great times some of which are best forgotten  ;)

Hi Nick Yes im sure there best forgotten ;)  but thanks for answering, You mention that you met Ernie on the forcourt of the Stocklands im presuming you mean the pub!  If so then you must remember Gerry he was the best customer the Stockland had.   Im sure their profits were down when he went out of town to work ::) :)

Hello exsalfordbridge


No I meant Stockland coaches not the pub where many of our drivers had their second home and where I had my first drink of bitter (and last)  Ernie used to serve the petrol at the weekends, if I remember correctly his day job was as a Toolmaker for IMI.

My Dad and Uncle ran Peppers. Howard and Bob Thomas. My Grandfather was the liscencee, also called Bob. I hear so many great stories about the bands they used to have on and the individuals that went on to big things. Feel quite proud when Robert Plant says to my Dad, "alroight Howard!" Really wish there were more pictures on the Internet from those days. Anyone know of any links?

Anyone know what as I remember The Queens Head at six ways Erdington changed its name to Peppers? Or are the people on this thread talking about another pub.
Was it a vision, or a waking dream?

Welcome to you, sorry I don't know of any links for the Queens Head, but you could try typing Erdington into the search box at the top right of the page as we have several threads on Erdington where there might be mentions of the pub.

Not a pub I ever used myself, but there again there were not many out that way that I ever did use, too far away from town for my liking.
