Britain's wonkiest pub the Crooked House in Staffordshire after rebuild order
  • 2 months ago
The last landlord of The Crooked House has welcomed the decision to rebuild Britain's wonkiest pub - and spoke of his hopes of it reopening as a popular boozer.
Lee Goodchild, 46, ran the iconic watering hole in Himley, in Staffordshire, from September 2022 until it shut down for good in June 2023.
Just two months later, the historic building was destroyed in a suspected arson attack on August 5 before being demolished two days later.
It emerged yesterday (Tuesday, February 27) that South Staffordshire Council has served an enforcement notice ordering the owners to rebuild the pub following its 'unlawful demolition'.
