Before going to the Friday Co-op dance in 1960, four of us sixteen year olds tried to buy our first alcoholic drink in The Sephton.
In the bar, after a long discussion, we decided we liked sherry because that is what our parents had in the house over Christmas and we had tasted it.
Having seen John Wayne ordering whisky with glasses we asked for a bottle of Bristol Cream and four glasses. The barman held his arm up, pointed to the door and said OUT. Memories!!!

In the late 60s I used to go every Friday night to listen to the singers and a pianist who could play every tune in the world in whatever key the volunteer was singing, "you hum it. I'll play it". Brilliant days with John Derbyshire controlling events by shouting "one singer one song" when people joined in the singing.
I had my stag party there in 1970 (well before travelling to Prague was the fashion) and had a great time - so I was told.

@ billinge lump

Do you know if it is closed for good (unlikely) or just between tenants/management?

I never heard it called that.
It used to have a date over the front, corner entrance...1902, I think. Is it still there? My long deceased uncle told me years ago that it was the same year as he was born.

Hi Folks. Big E was never landlard of the Prince. His brother Jack Frodsham was landlord for years with his wife, Pat, as landlady. Jack owned the two Great Danes (Bass and Scooby Doo) and moved from the Prince to the Brown Edge.
The last landlord, however, was Alan Roberts. Like Jack he was an ex-policeman. Big E did indeed play for Pilks Recs

My husban'd great, great grandfather John Leyland was landlord of this pub 1870-1872 when he died.
His widow Elizabeth (Betsy) was still the landlady on the 1881 Census, but moved before 1891.
