The Grapes has been a prominent feature of the north end of High Street for 140 years. Situated on the corner of Benhill Avenue, it was built by Charles Martin in c1867, on the site of a coach house and stables. Originally an hotel, The Grapes has changed hands many times. In c1970, the property was considerably extended. More recently, it was renamed The Corner House and then Pitchers Sports Bar, but has since reverted to its original name.
