Food tends to be the more "solid" of the two and is served on anything except a plate. Ale is generally wetter and served in a glass.   Hope this helps

Wasn't it where the old Victory Conservative Club was?

Different ways to get a sore arse I suppose.

Well you won't be able to find your way in now Rudy😂.      Rumours around that the  Fox & Stork on Halliwell Rd has shut for good, dunno if the rumours are true like. I know the landlady died recently.

I'm hearing the Fox is re-opening tomorrow, so much for the rumour i heard, but in my defence i don't live around there anymore.

CBA going back but I presume The Brooklyn was still a pub before this thread was resurrected...

Was strange hearing 'playtime' sounds coming from there t'other day. For a moment I thought the wind was blowing sounds from SS Simon & Jude or even MSJ until I remembered...

Then a teacher came out and pulled me down from my treetop lair and made me put my cock away.

The Jolly Ploughman, just up the road from the Finishers.

 

Double points for this one as it was a Wilson's pub and that breŵery has gone now.

We used to get very cheap beers in there after the games due to the fact my mate was shacked up with one of the barmaids back in the day.

 

Just seen I was answering a post from five years ago 🤣

Missing pub.

The George - where Debenhams is . Remember standing outside St George's Rd Church . Watching a wrecking ball smash it to bits.

 

Must admit i can't remember that one. Pretty sure there were 2 pubs in Palace St up the side of what was Pink Panthers.

No, i can't remember a "George " round there......it was the George just up from the Griffin & The Railway on Gt Moor St & now converted to student flats or something.

The 2 pubs off St Georges Rd were on Bath St next one from Palace St, The Clarence & McGinlays.

Further down from The Alma there was another pub I think...

Wasn't part knocked down and The Alma bought a part and knocked through?

The Alma's pool area come dancefloor cum gig area was down some steps and seemed 'separate'.

The Greenwood?

Just bought a memory back to me of my dad taking me to a shop near the Clarence that sold valves and all sorts of electrical stuff, remember it was a strange name but can't remember what the fuck it was.

I went in the Clarence one lunchtime from tech. It had a fairly long bar which I stood at one end of. Landlord was at the other end and was rather cross-eyed, which was ironic given the pub name. 
 

He didn’t move from his spot and shouted, “Yes lad?”

I casually waited my turn.

”Do you want serving?”

Again I waited, looking around to see who he might be serving.

He must’ve been looking about three feet to my right.

Oops!
