Lots of people hated the gramatical error in the name of this pub. We found it rather charming. Which isn’t what can be said about the pub or the building which wasn’t the nicest place to be. Which may be one reason why it’s now closed.

But thats’ still no excuse to leave it in a state. It’s not making the building any more attractive.
It currently looks like this:

But What If:

Here is a close up.

If we get to do it we will work on it a little more and make it look like everyone is enjoying a drink.

This is a simple ‘street art project’, the wooden windows would be stencilled with the famous faces as if they are enjoying a drink in the bar.

More to come…

    They could add Rolf Harris and ask him to do it. Can you tell who it is yet?

      It could be Andrew. It could be.

    No, no, no Lee!! Please don’t lose the name. The Two Half’s is a classic and much loved name. Love the rest of your pic but please don’t lose the Two Half’s distinctive name.

      Hi Mary,
      I don’t have a view on the name, it seems to be be hated and liked in equal measure from the people I’ve spoken to. We only changed it because the business is closed and the people taking it over wont use the same name, so we suggested ‘Free House’, while it was shut, simply because it was free for someone to take it over. If a quality group like Antic took it over, I wouldn’t care what they called it to be honest!
