What happened to the Crooked House Pub?

The Crooked House pub burned down after a late night fire.

The fire, which broke out around 10pm on August 5, 2023, happened just days after the pub was sold by Marston’s Brewery to ATE Farms Ltd.

Police confirmed no one was in the building when it caught fire, and firefighters revealed they were prevented from accessing the blaze by a pile of dirt that “blocked” the street.

The 18th-century pub was then demolished on August 7th, less than 36 hours after the fire.

Police have confirmed they will be “speaking to the owners” as part of a joint inquiry by South Staffordshire Fire Service and County Council.

What was said about the Crooked House Pub?

The Crooked House’s former landlord released a statement after the fire.

They wrote on Facebook: “After 10 months of hard work, very long hours and constant obstacles it’s quite upsetting to see your place of business end like this…

“The time investment is gone, the money is gone and one of the greatest buildings / oldest pub and heritage is gone.”

Staffordshire Police said in a statement they were “requesting information” following the fire.

They said: “It was assumed that no one was in the building and no one was reported injured.”

“We are currently working with fire investigators to determine the cause of the fire.

Meanwhile Roger Lees, leader of South Staffordshire City Council, said the local authority had not given its consent for the pub to be demolished after the fire.

He said: “The agreed course of action involved only the removal of three elements of the front facade on the first floor.”

“This was only done to prevent the weak parts of the structure from collapsing. At no time did the council agree to the demolition of the entire structure, nor did it consider it necessary.

“This council considers the manner in which the post-fire situation has been handled to be totally unacceptable and contrary to the instructions of our officials.”

West Midlands Mayor Andy Street called for the pub to be rebuilt brick by brick.

In a letter to Roger Lees, he continued: “We urge you to consider not allowing alternative uses and instead keep this iconic location as a pub.”

“It is in our best interests that we do not allow the Crooked House pub to become history.”
