    I recall going with friends to a mexican restaurant possibly 2004, before I moved here and there was a train that went around a suspended track above head height. Close to where Narvana is now. Keep in mind it was my first visit to Stafford so details are sketchy.

    That is where Navarna was. Until they redecorated you could still see where the track went.

    Was that Cadillac Jack's - possibly some sort of Tex-Mex fusion situation?

    I haven't been in either of those premises since the weird, but wonderful, tool shop went.

    Yes, @Retsina, definitely. I’d be there most weeks.
    It’s been sadly lacking for many years. The old Castle tavern (Oddyseus?) was pretty good at first but then changed hands & name & went crap.
    Does anyone remember the Greek place upstairs in Crabbery Street (poss where mcgregors is?). This would be the 90’s or possibly even earlier. One of the best Greek places ever. I think they had a similar place in Newcastle at the time.
    It would be great to see a new one open & hopefully people would appreciate the chance to try something different.

    Looks like we are getting a new bar in the former Sweet dessert shop (opposite Verso Lounge).

    There is a 'Liquor Tank' in Cannock so it looks like they are expanding. I have never been but I hear from folks I work with that it is OK (large cocktail menu & food wise it is tapas and pizzas etc.). Better than an empty unit anyway....

    A possible objection could be that people might enjoy themselves. Can't be having that in these Covid times.

    There isn’t many other businesses in that area that aren’t in the same trade. Can’t be too difficult to work out. :ohno:

    Isn't having the bars/pubs that cater for a slightly different clientele than the norm a good thing?

    It must be the pub on the same side that's complained. All the others are owner run I think.

    And a new batch -

    The Liquor Tank - already discussed on here
    Izaak Walton Brewhouse Ltd - relicensing the Railway at Norton Bridge
    The Tickled Trout - a bar at Loynton Trout Fisheries
    The Wren - the bar attached to the Crown Hotel in Stone, under yet another new name
    Bishton Hall - application for a bar and entertainment (films, live music, recorded music, dance, activities like music & dance) at Charles Hanson Auctions.

    I don’t think it would be. Some of the objections are about the behaviour of drinkers around the back of the buildings.

    I assume it is, I could be wrong though.

    That ain't drinkers, it's druggies. Been a favoured place to shoot up for years, old needles were common.
