Good shot David. Walking up or down there after a few pints could be laughable.

"Comment by Ernest Pyke on 12th September 2012 at 07:32:-
This pub put on a superb carvery lunch and in March 1970 increased the price from 10/6 to 12/6 ! My last meal there :- Haddock, chips and mushy peas, apple pie and custard, on 13th March 2010, cost £14.45.
There`s a photo in New gallery, Pubs page 2 to compare with today`s P-a-D."
How time flies!

Who parked the red car?
Comment by Garry on 14th August 2015 at 14:25
I park my car like that, it helps to stop ruff and banger cars or vans parking too close to me. A big bloke or woman tend to open their doors wide then dent and scratch body work on other folks vehicles. NO OFFENCE TO ANYONE, but that's why I do it. Supermarkets and the likes of B&Q are the worst places.

Pobs, pound to a penny it was a woman who parked the red car. It's their favourite trick to park across two bays - think they practice on supermarket car parks.

I remember going in there in the late 60'0 and I think the land lady's name was Mrs Gaskel.A big woman and jolly. The carvery was eat as much as you can 2/6d

Garry I got fined £30 for parking 4 inches over the white line on a car park in Ashton-under-Lyne. Wouldn't mind but there were hardly any other cars parked there. Nice photo.

MarieM; Thanks. No, I make use of the search box above the photo.

Garry: you make me smile, with your comment at 7:25.
I don't think you deserve the idiotic comments of some on here, maybe they should look at themselves. At least they give someone else a rest. Ann.
Comment by Garry on 16th August 2015 at 19:36
Thank you Ann, that's what I'm about.
Comment by Dave on 23rd August 2015 at 16:59
A 100 pound fine if you park like that in Scotland should bring it in here.
