I will always have fond memories of the Old Still in Wolverhampton. Situated in King Street in the town centre, this was the first pub that I ever went in as a young 16 year old with 'Som', way back in the early seventies.
Crofters in the sixties. We'd all be wearing suits, and for the first half hour on a Saturday night we'd all sit round with a pint of Walker's Bitter reading the 'Pink' which always had the report of the Wigan game we'd watched that same afternoon. Then off to the Clarence, then the Bier Keller, finishing off in the Pacific Ocean for a Special [with fried rice and the egg on top!] Happy days!
There are just three pubs left in the centre of Pem. It's any ones guess how much longer they will hang on. Takeaways have far more customers than these pubs. It's a shame really but a sign of the times.
My first pub was the Amberswood hotel known as the little hole, there used to be around a dozen of us frequented this before we went on the Wigan trawl and never had trouble after that when a few of us started courting we went in different pubs ours was the Lancashire union now known as the la cava many happy days or nights spent in that watering hole
