Re: Pubs on Blackburn rd

working mens clubs were always clicky and treated women as second class with stupid rules like no women in snooker rooms etc and only allowed in at weekends,this and the loss of the working man has put an end to them.not before time if you ask me.

They moved on from that.
I was a committee member at the Pioneer club for a few years, and there were other ladies on the committee too.

There was a pub called The Beehive, now a private house. Same side as Hollands.

Re: Pubs on Blackburn rd

Nags Head closed down yesterday after a rebirth for almost 10 years.

The Calder was shut too.
