Holyhead, Holyhead Road

These premises have been known by different names during their history:FROMTONAME
Holyhead This pub gets its name because it stands on the Holyhead Road, Thomas Telford's great coaching road from London to Holyhead. In 1929 the license for the Crystal Palace in the Burges was transferred to the Holyhead. The first licensee was Lesley White, who left the pub in 1960 after 31 years in charge. He exchanged licenses with Mr Stan Adkins, ex Coventry rugby player, of the White Lion, Brownshill Green. It always has been a popular pub, probably because of its prominent position on a main route into the city and at times has targeted a youthful clientele. It was renovated in 1984 and again in 2001 when it became an Ember Inn.
