Favourite Pubs in Union Steet (The Strazzer)

I used to love going into a lot of the pubs in Union Street. My favourites were the Long Bar, Noahs Ark, the PR, Two Twigs, The Star (Later The Street), The Pheonix, the JJ Moor, the Clarence, The Malthouse, The Hackneey & Carriage, the Clipper etc etc before heading for Two's Up, Boobs, Ziggy's or Cascades. I reckon the strazzer is or was one of the best runsashore in the world. I also bet a lot of these pubs no longer exist!!

Don't know what you're talking about GD. Never been in any of them 'cos my usual route to church kept me away from Union Street. I certainly would never have been in the Sir Jeremy because I would have hated a King's Badgeman called Bold pulling me a pint.

As for stealing the bull-fighter's spear out of the Noah's Ark........I know nothing about that one or the fight outside the Antelope when I was collecting for the Salvation Army.

I was innocent; it was a big lad wot dun it and ran away.

What was the bombed out church called at the top of union street. Was that the one you went to.

Just for reference, up from Noahs on the roundabout?

Steady on GD..........if I wouldn't admit to being in the Sir Jeremy Moore; there's no way that you are going to pin the bombing of Charles Cross Church on me.

It was a big Luftwaffe wot dun it and ran away

Cheers Mate :lol:

Favourite has to be The Two Twigs. Last time I was there was in 95 when I done the 8 before 8 and still have the t-shirt. Do they still do that. I guess nowadays it would be called binge drinking!

Nice one on the bombed out church.

The Star of The West, nice cider. Too true my friend. It was scrumpy as well. There was a pint called half & half. Half rough and half sweet cider. It was cheap and blew yer socks off. I used to sink a couple of them as warmers into the butts and then head down the strazzer for some fun.

My personal fav in The Star of the West was called "Rock and Roll"

1/2 Coates Dry + 1/2 Huddlestones Vintage

Could be the same drink

Used to love most of the bars in the 80's and in no particular order...

Two Twigs
Long Bar
The Antelope
London Bars
PR
The Castle (Diamond Lils)
The Eagle
Noahs Ark (Spanish Bars)
Trader Jacks
Boobs or Commodores, when the pubs kicked out at 11.

Can remember The Eagle and Noahs Ark being bootie strongholds and them all drinking cans of 'Breaker' cider and crushing them afterwards to try and frighten us matelots. :)

Can remember many a scrap in the Octogon at club kicking out time, usually at the taxi rank.
