Former strippers' pub among winners of competition to find Britain's best pub designs

A former strippers' pub was among the winners of a competition to find Britain's best pub designs.

The Campaign for Real Ale said its contest proved it was possible to restore heritage pubs to their former glory.

The conservation award was given to the Scottish Stores in London's King's Cross, a listed Grade II building designed by the architects Wylson and Long in 1900.

Once renamed The Haunch of Venison the pub was restyled in the 1980s as The Flying Scotsman, after the train run by the station across the road. The pub also became celebrated during these years as one of the last remaining strippers' pubs in London.
