Forward to thePub past!

I’m in Birmingham, Britain’s Second City and my beloved (if neglectful!) hometown. I love that there are still vibrant old pubs on old trading routes.

Like this, The Packhorse, in Hollywood, a few miles from Birmingham city centre, on the old route to Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford and ultimately London. Updated from the 1800’s but still it still feels aptly named. And it also still feels miles from anywhere – as it was in the pre-housing estate days of horse haulage!
