Is there still a dummy in there? Made me jump first time I saw it.

A great pub when it was Gems. Possibly the last pub in town to get absolutely rammed. Getting served at last orders felt like a crowd piling into one of those phone boxes. I don't think I ever found a seat in Gems.

Tony Callaghan, the owner of Fifteens lives not far from me in Roby Mill. For many years there was a red phone box with a dummy in it outside his house.
