Hey Winterlong, sit in a corner wearing a Derby shirt, you’ll get all sorts of desirables talking to you.  Welcome to the forum btw.

The New Inn still standing & open, just under another name, used it for a while when it was Rosie O'Brian's.

That pub has had a few different names over the years.  More recently it was ‘The New Carrington Inn’ and now it’s called ‘Turners’.  Not been in there since it was ‘The New Inn’ many many years ago.  Sadly the different name changes haven’t helped it, there are still the same sad hollow-cheeked drinkers sitting outside the door faggin’ it.  You certainly wouldn’t like that RR .......

You're more than welcome to join us in the Wollaton for lunch Winterlong. Put faces to names, put the world to rights and tell each other how it was all so much better back then...     

Oh and at  your age you will of course be in the juniors...   :jumping:

Reading some of the fabulous posts on here has got the old memory bank on overtime. I went to Trent Poly in 1969 and was there a pub nearby called The Wilberforce near to a brilliant chippy? Also recall The Hand Inn and Dolphin. On the way back from Forest I would have picked up my Football Post, it's hard to believe but it was on the streets for about quarter past 5 after the game, and go in The Horse And Groom.Excellent house. Somebody mentioned Trumans, I vaguely recall it.When was it knocked down?

Thanks for the invite to The Wollaton Brew. I intended to join you on Saturday but I went in the Burnt Pig in Ilson for a snifter and met an old friend and so ended up in Canning Circus. I will get there one Saturday. What time to you  normally assemble?

Hi,

Just seen this.

Not that it ever matters to most of us, but The Flying Horse certainly had a well known reputation for being a gay meeting place, as well as a good pub.

Though "gay' was not the descriptive word in the '60s and early '70s.

Saturday night was not complete without a pint in the Flying Horse, had some good nights in there, beer was good too. The term 'gay' hadn't been invented then, most of the names were derogatory..

Love them Fly, especially with chips. Had a couple with mash on Friday last. Not the sort you're  referring to.

The Thurland

(Freddie Slack's)

 

 

Freddie Slack's Thurland Hall, oh yes indeed a pub and landlord of the old school.   Old Slackie had his enemies (like all good pub landlords used to have most of them folk who had been justifiably barred) but he was a great friend to me and to many others I could mention too.  He was at the Thurland the same time I had the Coach and Horses on Upper Parliament Street.  Fred passed away several years ago bless him; a great guy, a great friend and very sorely missed.

When I was a company accountant I used to organise my banking at the Nat West to be around 12 noon so that I could pop Into the men only bar at the Thurland and have a swift half and a slice of pork pie. That was back in the days when you could easily find a parking spot right outside the door.

Know the Liberal Cub well had my wedding reception in the room up stairs  its at the start of St Ann's well road give or take 40/50 yards.

 

I miss all the "PUBS" where you could have a good sing song with the old joanner playing. Remember The Brick and Tile at Underwood changed from a pub to "MA HUBBARDS" now no longer ma hubbards site now OAP bungalows. have been built on the land.

Both establishments still exist. The Hole has had many incarnations and at one time was a good place for lunch. A couple of years ago,  it changed hands and now specialises mainly in pizza. Wasn't impressed with the fare so no longer go there.

Went in the Hole a few years ago when it was a Crown carvery, cheap and cheerful. Also went in the Shephards rest which was average.

Hope this is not too off topic but there are two hotel bars I am trying to remember the names. The first was the lower ground floor of the Albany Hotel. Even though it was part of the hotel building it I don't think there was public access between the two. It used to offer very nice English food such as cottage pie, steak & kidney pie, Cornish pasties all homemade and with real chips (that was in the days when nearly all restaurant chips were from McCains or those disgusting extruded offerings from Wimpy bars). 

 

The other place, or places, were the bars at the Strathdon Hotel. There was the large bar with the entrance via Wollaton Street - that may have been the Tryst bar and the other the small bar on the Derby Road side.

 

Timescale here is the 1970s.
