Been in here many times,my Grandma & Grandad used to live in the street at the side of the pub Spring Gardens, its had a few changes over the years, the arch which you can see behind the bus stop used to be an entry leading onto the car park at the back of the pub even that has been taken away it got changed about 1982 when Frank had it.

If the winds in the right direction & you are outside this pub, you can smell the Uncle Joe`s mint balls from Santus` nearby !
