About the Pub

A former Matthew Brown pub, The Lancaster (opposite the Spindlemakers) was very popular pub, with a large public bar on one side and a room that used to feature live music on the other. Then some genius came up with the idea of turning it into a disco pub called the Coconut Grove with the DJ housed in, yes you've guessed it, a coconut. It lasted a while then fell off a bit so they relaunched it as Crystals. This wasn't a success, so the pub was closed in 1996 and sold off and it was turned into offices. The exterior of the building is more or less as it was when it was a pub.
