At The Ship, Eighton Banks, the crowd used to meet some 25 or 30 years ago for a good social boys wednesday neet oot. Very convivial those neets were too! Alas no more.
Although I hadn't been in for years, I was greeted by an old black labrador in the bar after almost nose diving over the builders alterations at the entrance. So I settled down to sup a Spitfire Lancaster Amber. The place looked as busy as ever with drinkers and now has a reasonable restaurant as well.
Well worth a visit.
