It's a great Art Deco building, but I cannot remember what it was before becoming a pub. Can anyone jog my memory, please?

Certainly not an art deco building. Whatever building was there prior, the friar penketh is a new building, built for JD Weatherspoons as a pub. it's not an old building that's been converted.

There was a pub on the site called the Old House at Home . It had a long narrow bar often frequented in the old days by actors and performers at the theatre across the road
