The Bench & bar

Recommended Posts

Sorry folks, I almost forgot - after Scamps I did a stint in the Bench and Bar just at the end of Bridlesmith Gate and on the way down into Broadmarsh................It was run by two people and I can't remember either of their names (Andy and Sue? He was slim, dark hair and bearded she was dark-haierd and very, very shapely), but I know they were involved dwon at the Brit before that. This would be about'75 or early

76...........................

Anyone remember them?

And if anyone remembers any of the crew from Cecil Gees which was at the Victoria centre when it opened.................what a great shop, what totally great guys!

And if anyone knows anyone who worked at Bertrand russell House and maybe knew Carole Wilson.............

Cheers,

Charlie

I thought it was Andy Clifford! Brill! Don't suppose anyone knows any pubs in Awsworth? Do we know if he stayed with his Missis?

It was a Mansfield Brewery pub, their only Nottingham city centre pub, its name problerly something to do with its location to Shire Hall?  Sure there was a pram shop around the corner & OddBins on the other corner?

There was also Lees, the wool and craft shop, just round the corner from the pub.
