i remember this pub having no celler. the beer was pumped straight from the brewery behind. in 1966 i spent my 20th birthday there, after 20 bottles of guiness i went onto rum and black! the brewery also had an hospitality bar, can anyone remember its name?Link to Pub

Excellent pub in the 70's, packed every night, the St Helens ex boxers association met their every Sunday, never remember there being any trouble their on a Sunday. great double act landlord and landlady John (the Tooting Cowboy) Sines and his long suffering wife Enid ran the pub.Link to Pub

One of the few pubs in town that I didn't try in my teens. I think I started walking in once and then walked out backwards when I saw that the customer base was largely mac-wearing middle-aged-to-elderly hardened drinkers. :-)Link to Pub

It's true about that bar. I remember the bare floorboards too. It was dinner time. I think I was fifteen and from school we'd spent the morning at the tech. My mate said that he'd heard that it was easy to be served in the Angel, so we took off our ties and wandered in. It was a proper spit'n'sawdust place. Just a couple of old fellas standing by themselves - looking as though they were in some kind of purgatory and an equally cheerful old bloke behind the bar - who obviously couldn't care less how old we were. I think I had a pint of bitter. The fact that it was so easy to be served didn't encourage me to go back. :-)Link to Pub
