So at least you agree so far. My mate John at work was talking about it and I couldn't place it. I do know most pubs in town. (or so I thought ).

SB
Have looked in McKenna's book. It just says:
Red, formerley the Plantation, formerly the Sputnik is a somewhat nondescript public house at the top of Temple St. From this I gather it was not a pub before it had these names. In fact this is not surprising as it is in the basement of a fairly modern building.

Many thanks for your help Mike. I think the Plantation may be what we are looking for.
Thanks too to everyone who took part in this one. SB

Good morning all.

SB, the Sputnik may have been called "Plantation" as per Mikejees information, or could have been called "Planters Bar" as per this discussion... http://www.birminghamroundabout.co.uk/20...n-introduction/
