If you stood there and paid that for four drinks then you and the landlord deserve each other...I'd have told them to sod off and walked out.

What was latterly known as the Trentside Social Club on Wilford Lane closed down a few years ago

Was it previously the British Rail Staff Association?

Might have been a lovely building but a developer thinks they'll get lots of lovely money for the 34 Appartments, some of them with added money for River view. (River Trent at top of picture)

5 floors plus Penthouse on 6th by the river

4 floors on the Wilford Lane block

Plans approved in 2018

I love a couple of pints of Guinness, especially with a good steak. It is one of the essential food groups.

We can get it on draught at a lot of pubs here and brewed in Dublin too not like some of the other "fake" imported beers

I hear that the zero alcohol version experiment has not gone well.

I recall the Clinton with affection. When I used to work Traffic from Ollerton, particularly six to two, or nights, the shift could take us to Central nick. Sometimes those shifts were endless. The best call was prisoner transfer from either Retford or Worksop or Mansfield to Central. Even better if it was midday. We knew we were not getting back that day. It could be 7pm at least before we knocked off.  Usually we had to find accommodation in central nick, but I went home to my mum and dad in Hyson Green. We had bomber jackets over our uniforms and went for a pint in the Clinton. Hardly masking who we were. The girls knew who we were and didnt stop. I usually had a couple of pints then went to Mogul E Azam, not that far away.

Another pub which has closed recently was the Canal Tavern in Worksop. In the 80s is was a coppers pub. The landlord, Ray, welcomed it as there was never ever any trouble. I recall Ray with affection. If we were busy and it got late on a night and we wanted a pint, he would open the back door. Well, who was going to report him to the police?

Very many years ago the local policeman used to pop into the Full Moon at Morton and join us at the lock in after hours. No doubt we would all be  arrested today.

I doubt it Phil, Pandemic rules accepted, it was a way of maintaining contact with the community. Just having a copper in there drinking quietly could ensure that the pub closed down quietly. especially in rural areas.

There was certainly no rowdiness in the Moon. It was a respectable crowd. The head brewer from Shipstone’s, the chief engineer at Boots, the manager of Staythorpe power station, the local doctor and dentist and me, to name just a few!

I remember the Old General, Owd G with great affection.

To this day, I am sure that I am one of very few who have been in Red Square in Moscow and Old Market Square in Nottingham in the same day. I got on the tram, but despite the huge amounts of luggage I had with me, I had to pay a call to the Old General pub.  Last time ever, it was.

Obviously the ‘go-to’ place for the local captains of industry then ;)

My old fellow used have riot vans full of coppers turn up for lock ins, because he lived off the premises, he then used to drive home pissed up with a squad car following him.

Then it were off down to the Star n Garter at Hazelford then a blast down to the Vol at Caythorpe finally finishing off back at cheggO...
