We met our mated there of both religions no one cared we went for the good time and had one. I used to drink carlsberg special at one shilling and elevenpence a bottle!!!

A nephew of the owner worked there as a barman and was tragically killed in a car crash in December 1974.

Yes, I served drinks there in the lounge bar upstairs after college maybe 1966/1967. Robbie Keenan was the licensee and bar managerís name was Raymond. Lovely friendly crowd there. Have fond memories😊
