Astonian,

I used the Golden Gloves a lot in the sixties. It was on the corner of Stratford Place and Moseley Rd opposite Highgate Park. Not much going for it as a club, but it one thing going for it. You could get one of the biggest and best T bone steaks in Birmingham.

There again when you are three sheets to the wind, everything takes on a different perspective. So perhaps the steak in reality was rubbish, but it certainly was big,

Can anyone tell how the Gate got its name a Toll gate there at one time maybe.:)

Yes I think you had to pay a toll to go up the Rock.
Also just there is Gate Street with the gates to the factory at the end. There was a map posted on here somewhere showing the toll gate.
Not a bad place to have a pub. Stop for refreshment..water the horse...pay the toll and on your way.

Thanks for the Info Phil most interesting, I had that Website about 12 months ago and lost it in a Crash but the Folks on this Forum have put me wise since, thanks again:)

I would have replied sooner but I've only just stopped bashing my head against the wall after Villa's terrible show today.

The Gate pub had well deserved bad name if you was`nt a local you went in at your own risk so you kept out.

GER22VAN, Very possible through a window maybe through a wall, even if you were 6ft tall and fairly well built as i was in my youth discretion was the better part of valour, you just DID NOT go in.:RailGun: :1024: .

How interesting thanks Mariew. I knew the story but this is a little different from what I had read.

Yes I found it interesting, I do hope he finds out what happened to the figures, maybe someone knows.

Hi,

Can anyone tell me what year The Gate was demolished? I know it was in the early 1990's. After demolition some of the regulars laid a wreath on the site, the Evening Mail covered the story and I'm trying to find a copy of that.
