I remember Joe and Billy. Further up Millgate there was a 'club' which served drink at unusual hours. Joe and Billy help run the place. It's a long time ago.

My dad,Frank Jones ran this pub for a whilein the 70s, alas he died there too. \my dad tolme when he first took it over, the old, hard drinkers would be waiting outside for the pub to open around 5 00, and they wouldn't leave till they spent their last penny. It was massive upstairs

Yes Stan, happy times living there with our dad. He was starting to turn the pub around.
Does anyone remember our dad???
