The Bow Street Runner pub in Tamworth was given a Russian theme some years ago, being billed at the town’s first ‘vodka bar’.
Yet, the Russian hammer & sickle seems to me strangely at odds with the heritage name of the pub. (The ‘Bow Street Runners’ were the precursors of England’s formal police force – which, in turn, was founded 200 years ago by the town’s then MP, Robert Peel).
And so this pub-sign looks very odd indeed.
But, branding moves on, so the sign may be due a new look in the near future as the pub’s disco has recently been re-named ‘Decadence’.
I wonder what a new sign with that theme would look like!
