Local nicknames for Pubs

Recommended Posts

The Crocus down Wilford road was also known as the Crowee.

Denshaw, was it called "Coopers Arms"?  Bloody daft I  know, considering I used to drink in there when we lived on Dogwood Avenue.

Coopers Arms on Bardney Drive was renamed The Top House about 4/5 years ago.

The Limekiln on Camberley Road/Sellers Wood Corner was built in the 90s?

It was always referred to as the "Top House".

Also the Framesmiths Arms in Bulwell town was always called the Monkey, now under new management the pub has been renamed the "Monkey".

I think someone has already mentioned the Nags Head and the Bruno, but pub names round Carlton used to get abbreviated and an O added on to them, so the Nags Head became the Naggo, the Old Volunteer the Vollo.  
 

The Inn for a Penny was the Royal Oak before it was renamed. On a recent visit back to Carlton, I noticed some of the old places have now disappeared. The Grey Goose (where I met my wife) has been knocked down, the Porchester is now some sort of shop, The Carlton Hotel has been knocked down for housing, as has the Cavendish, so I understand. The Westdale Tavern is now the local Coop!

I used to live near that area and can remember a few pub names and places.

 

The Punchbowl on Porchester Road is still there; what used to be a Co-op on Carlton Hill (the flat bit at the top) is now a Wetherspoons called the Free Man; the Windsor Castle near Carlton Square has gone; and the Coopers Arms at the bottom end of Porchester Road is housing.

Yes, they knocked down the old Toby Jug on Carlton Hill and turned it into a shop, then they turned the Co-op into the Wetherspoons pub. Not too many of my old watering holes left. I think the Tally Ho on Oakdale Rd and the Elwiss/Lodge at the very end of Oakdale Rd are still there, though I’ve not been up that way for years.

 

They rebuilt the Windsor in Carlton Square, when Tesco opened in the 1980’s, but it was boarded up the last time I went past.

Further up the road it looks like the Bruno (Earl of Chesterfield) has suffered a similar fate, and the Catholic Club too!

Somehow I managed to get served in the Bruno when only about 16 !! 

As i  lived in Carlton (had progressed  from Sneinton)  the Catholic Club had attendance usually on a Sunday, as did the Carlton Hotel and its famous sunday night disco. Sometimes went in the Cavo when didnt go into town. The Westdale was quite nice for a local pub. Worked in the newly refurbed Nags Head on Carlton Hill around 1980 and then The Elwes Arms (landlord had moved there from original Grey Goose). Inn for a Penny was always a theme pub to us and altho my Parents lived almost opposite for 20 yrs that went in only once I believe. And does anyone remember Club Balaton at the top of Beseccar Avenue where some of us would go after the Nags Head ?? All probably gone now.

Club Balaton, used to go in there they had a late licence. I think they were a Hungarian couple that ran it.

Other than Elwes and In for a Penny, yes your right, they are gone, regarding the Catholic Club, assuming I have the right one.. same side as the Bruno, a little further up the hill...

became a gym/fitness centre..then became the 'Doghouse' rehearsal/recording studio & live venue, which also closed about 5 year's ago.

Doe's anybody remember a independent betting shop which was round the side? when it was the Catholic Club?

 

Rose queen, thanks for the inspiration and reminders..

 

 Not the Westdaele Tavern but  very close..Hartington Ave?...
