Dave Holt, the man behind Baker Street, a new bar in Avenham Street, has been left baffled by finding a Robinson’s bottle of beer.

Branded as ‘Robinsons Preston Brewery’ the bottle looks to date back more than 70 years – but the South Manchester-based brewery has never had a brewery in the city.

Mr Holt, who said they are hoping to have the new bar open by Christmas this year, is also appealing for any information about the history of the building.

It used to be SoBar and has been a pub since the 1830s.

Major renovation work is continuing inside to give the pub a new look.

Anyone with any information about the history of the building or the bottle can email vicky@holtpubco.co.uk.
