Comment by Mick on 4th April 2016 at 07:48
I like the little tractor, Ive seen this around Aspull a few times.


Comment by Scholes Malc on 4th April 2016 at 08:25
under new management I believe - seen a sudden demise in pubs in Aspull over the years - I believe the Gerard is doing quite well and I heard a whisper about a 'micro bar' opening up ...gone...Hare & Hounds, Running Horses, Queens Head, Red lion, New Inn, Mount Pleasant

" Bloomin-eck!" now that's the way to go with owd pubs. Love the little grey Ferguson tractor who does that belong to.


Comment by Phil Harrison on 4th April 2016 at 10:14
Walt, I don't know who owns it, but it was on show at a recent Tractor Rally held in Aspull.


Comment by Neil Cain on 4th April 2016 at 10:51
As the new management has gone to such trouble I feel obliged to take a pint in there. I'm very generous like that!


Comment by joe graney on 4th April 2016 at 11:24
could somebody put the name of the landlord/lady on here please.


Comment by Johnny on 4th April 2016 at 13:32
I'll have a pint of Guinness, Neil, and a packet of Pork Scratchins as you're feelin generous!! :-)

I sat on this doorstep many times as a kid. We used to take bottles back for the 3d deposit. Two bottles bought a packet of Smith's Crisps, the ones with the little blue twist of salt. We were easily pleased.


Comment by joe graney on 4th April 2016 at 15:52
I would love to know the proprietors name.


Comment by irene roberts on 4th April 2016 at 16:05
Mine's a Barley Wine, Neil! Lovely photo, Ron.


Comment by joe graney on 4th April 2016 at 18:22
best picture on here for a while well done Ron.


Comment by Mick on 4th April 2016 at 20:04
Why dont you phone them up Joe and ask him yourself


Comment by Johnny on 4th April 2016 at 20:25
Dennis
As kids we used to climb into the back-yard of the ale-house, help ourselves to a few empties and redeem the deposits at the "outdoor". After a week the landlord got suspicious until my mate said Its a very sad case, Johnnys Dad is an alcoholic!


Comment by joe graney on 5th April 2016 at 06:54
Mick that is a good idea,will do that.Ernest thank you for your info.


Comment by joe graney on 5th April 2016 at 07:24
