Anybody else remember Bev and Geoff, had the Rose and Crown by the Gatehouse c2003?
Visted aunts elsie and peggy at Stone just before Christmas. Chatted about Bernard and Betty for a while. Even though they don't go out any more they still knew about Betty's passing.
Bev's at the Telegraph
Not looked if this news is on any other thread, but Arthur Candlin jr died 9th March. Ex landlord of Kings Head, Doxey Arms and New Inn. Funeral next thursday at Crem 12.30.
Gordon and Joyce who had the White Lion and then the Chains,
even the guys from the RAF were frightened of Joyce, she was lovely.
Russ, Jenny & Daz Whitehouse at The Lamb on Broadeye
Barry & Doreen Moore ran the Castle Tavern from late 80's into the 90's, then I think they went on to run Rose & Crown?
The Hogans ran the Railway Inn for many a year.
After my time.......
Used to be 'The Crossbow' and I used to work behind the bar in the 70's
Mr Frank Cary(Or Major Cary as he preffered to be called ) and his wife were really horrible to work for. If I spilt a bit of froth over the top of the glass he would say "Maaam....that is half a new pence you have just lost me!" I used to dread it when a customer requested a guinness!!
He sent me home once to change a brand new cardigan that my mum had just knitted me because he didn't like the look of it.
Quite a few customers were ordered out of his 'Cocktail Lounge' because they weren't suitably attired.
I remember her well. Don't know why the RAF lads were worried, it was sailors hats she donned behind the bar lol.
Which pub in Stafford currently has the longest serving landlord in post?
Point for the first correct answer.
I thought you'ld get it. Spot on. Point awarded.
found out on friday that apparently The Railway was once under the watchful (brown) eye of a chap named Roger Myring
Assisted by affable barman Dickie Rimmer
They came from the same era as Paul Mycock the cellar man.
probably between 1994 and 2005
From my vague memory Jackie Proudlock ran the Railway briefly in 96, after that a woman with her son & daughter ran it ( I think her sons name was John?) someone out there will correct me if I’m wrong…
Wasn't Lee (early 70s) visually challenged?.......
