Yes there was a large one opposite the road to Baddesley Clinton. The name will come to me eventually. It became a training centre to licensees then a nightclub and then a Restaurant (might have the last two back to front.

TOM O'BEDLAM Chadwick End
[FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]A pub that no longer exists, though it was listed in a Warwickshire Directory of 1874. One anecdote from the pub survives. A local man was drinking at the Tom O'Bedlam, a man who had previously been a patient in a Warwickshire asylum. Another drinker called him a lunatic. The former patient replied "No I am not and I have a certificate to prove it". The pub was used as an Ansells Brewery training centre for a time, before being re-invented as a bar called CUDDLES in 1985. After a short spell as GREGORY'S RESTAURANT & BAR, it became the LION ROCK before being demolished for housing in the 1990's.[/FONT]

Not sure but from memory it was a typical 1930's style building. More city/town centre looking than a country pub.
