    Sorry, getting my roads mixed up. It rings a bell that place, wasn't it converted to another use?

    You may be thinking of the Swanswell Inn in Hales Street? The Jubilee was built on the site of the Swanswell Inn in Swanswell Street. There was also a Swanswelll Tavern in White Street (became McGuigan's Bar) and a Swanswell Cottage in Leicester Street!

    Out of interest, the ex gaffer of the Jubilee (known as sunny I think,) was a mate of Joe Dhinsa and offered to put money up to help buy the City (:

    Here's a picture of when the Swanswell Inn occupied the site of the Jubilee on the left-hand corner of Queen Street which roughly lay along the line of the pedestrian walkway in the post above:
