Titanic Brewery pumps at bod Lichfield

A Staffordshire brewery says it is in advanced talks to take over a Lichfield city centre pub.

Titanic Brewery – which operates the bod cafe bar in Streethay – hopes to take on The Pig on Tamworth Street, with a spokesperson saying they were in “advanced talks”.

The company was launched almost four decades ago and has gone on to open more than 16 pubs and cafe bars.

A spokesperson for bod Lichfield said:

“Titanic Brewery are in advanced talks to take over The Pig public house on Tamworth Street.

“We’re really excited to bring a proper, traditional Titanic pub to Lichfield alongside our bod cafe bar.”

But the move could see the name of the pub change.

“We think The Pig is a wonderful building in the heart of Lichfield and are excited be involved in the next chapter of this pub’s story – but a new chapter requires a new name!

“Titanic pubs exist to serve the local community, and so we’d like to ask for suggestions as to what people would like the new pub to be called.”

People can make a suggestion by emailing [email protected] or commenting on the bod Lichfield Facebook page.

How about The Captain Smith ? After all we’ve got his statue in Beacon Park ? An apt name for a Titanic Pub ?

I totally agree with the first two comments.
I have surprised family and friends from both USA and Europe about this statue and our wonderful park, and none of them had any idea.

This is great news. It is really sad to walk past and see a pub closed so this will really add something extra to the centre. Plus the beer is great

The Captain Smith is a truly terrible name for a pub.

There is footage of the unveiling of the statue on YoutTube.

Given the Brewery’s name, how about calling it “Goes Down Well”…?

Chris…Good footage of the unveiling. I have never understood why the captain who was acting recklessly or the ship, which failed to live up to its unsinkable name, should be memorable for anything but the senseless loss of lives.
Perhaps the beer is called Titanic because it goes down easily ?

Tis a fine name @grumpyoldman.

I understand that the opening night is restricted to women and children first.

It could be called ‘The Harland’, after Harland & Wolff the ship building company that built it.
