SP2965 : Simple Simon

taken 9 years ago, near to Warwick, Warwickshire, Great Britain

Simple Simon
Simple Simon
Unlike the nearby SP3065 : The Greyhound, this pub seems to be thriving and is currently undergoing redecoration. To the rear is the home of the Slaughterhouse Micro brewery.

The pubs name and the fact that the former Fleur de Lys Pie Factory used to be almost opposite ( SP2965 : Site of Emscote Mill ) are not entirely coincidental. The pub was previously called the Elephant and Castle, however when Mr Brookes moved his pie manufacturing to the former mill he also bought this pub, renamed it the Simple Simon and spent the rest of his life serving pies and pints here right up until he died.
