We can add a fourth stage.

I drove past today and the windows & doors have fresh metal sheeting over them.

I hope someone will be able to add a happier fifth stage...

Known locally as "The Fairy". Only went in there twice.
Why?
Because there were better pubs to spend my money in.
Sorry.

It's up for Sale at the moment, has opened and closed half a dozen times over the past few years.

Just as a little note, not really about pubs, but definitely part of Wirral "History", the building you can see next to Pub (Dairyman) was converted to a private house many years ago, and until he died last year a good friend of mine called Charles lived there.

In the very early 90's that very house was how most of the Wirral connected to what was then the beginnings of the Internet. He had the local BBS (bulletin board) which you could ring up (yes your computer had to dial out, and it cost you for the call, and it was slow) and you could share program's with other people. Not always at the same time, although he did have a couple of phone lines, and nothing even remotely like today, but you could post messages, give links to other computers you could ring into (yes, each computer had a phone number) and once or twice a day his computer would dial into the next biggest computer in the line/net/link/chain/web and collect/send messages and program's from others.

That house was the beginning of Wirrals Internet connection, before we had the Internet.

Wiki, the early years. .

Oh, I Used To Know Charles Myself, I Was Only Using Google Earth Last Night Looking At His House And Wondering If He Was Still There. I Used To Go Around And Swop Shareware, Quicker Than Down Loading. We Used To Go For A Pint In The Lord Napier. Sorry To Hear About Him Passing Away.

The house that Charles lived in was known as the Ten o'Clock shop in the early-mid 70s. It sold odd stuff - like loose cigarettes and funny milk in long bottles. It also had the Earth's largest "NO CREDIT" sign.

I guess the funny milk was sterilised; awful stuff, came in a tall thin bottle with a crown cork. Very popular in the Midlands. In a cafe, when you asked for tea, you'd be asked "pas. or stera?"
