Does any one know what the beaten docket was call before it was the beaten docket?
The Beaten Docket is now Brennan's Bar

There used to be a pub in the entry that runs from Castle Lane between the back doors of BHS and Mothercare through to High Street. It was in the corner at the back door of BHS and was open during the late 70s early 80s, I'm not sure when it closed down but I think it is part of BHS now.

What did you call the bar beside the old College of Business Studies in Amelia St - it was only open a few years in the early 1980's ?
