Scarlets (formerly The White Lion), 34 Horse Fair
Scarlets describes itself as a restaurant, night club and bar. Previously the Radius Bar & Club was here. Going back through time, this building has also been The White Lion pub and The Red Lion pub. The position is complicated, and the following information is based on a post by someone called Mike on the very interesting Birmingham History Forum. From the late 1800's up to 1899, number 34 Horse Fair was The Red Lion pub. Next door, round the corner at 27 Thorp Street, was another pub called The White Lion. In about 1900, the two pubs seem to have been amalgamated, which no doubt involved some building alterations. The enlarged and combined pub took the name The White Lion, and the address was 34 Horse Fair, no doubt because the main entrance was on that street. After 1900, the address 27 Thorp Street disappears from the records, though what had been that building was of course now part of 34 Horse Fair. SP0686 : Thorp Street.
