IAN123. 9,325 Posted May 25, 2018 Report Share Posted May 25, 2018 Often was the urge to drink out of town, Some cracking pubs..which are vanishing or have vanished! A few watering holes on a typical crawl.The Langham..or Langers we named it..bit worn around the edges but a cracking pint. Catfan shot rats in here after closing time..honest!..ask him.After drooling at the Ibanez guitars in Carlsboro..over to The Radford Arms for a pint of heavy..'The Crystal Chandelier' was a juke box fave..a Castella and a pint..you were the dogs (?)Smiths were'nt bad. Nice Home Ales head...first came in here as a nipper ..me Dad coached fencing further up at St.Pauls Church Hall.Over the lights past Morleys Bread Shop and into the Cricket Players..niceing up the dance..with a sound system..A malt beer for me..and a couple of blasts from the chalice! We'd stay downstairs in here and catch up with folk we knew. again a cracking jukebox..'Echo Beach 'by Martha & The Muffins got some hammer.The Carlton was a Back Burner or a Game Changer..we might do Rawson St...The Palm Tree..up Duke St.to the Elm Tree on Beech Avenue...( Young legs then.) Roy Whartons...i know! But the Scotholme was a pub i loved..even before Gerrards..great pint and a chance for some soakage..cheese and onion cobs were a sensation.The Albany or a final pub on Birkin Avenue was the norm..a stroll to a chinky..sup of Clan Dew and bed. Such were the great pubs..that side of the city. Noted recently The Vernon on Waverley St.is now a Sainsburys! Anyone else? 1 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
