The Plumbers Arms used to be the best pub in town. Now that was real 24 hr drinking before the concept of legalising it had ever been thought of. Happy days. bowdown.gif

Saying that barlows was a cracking little boozer aswell.

Knew Vince very well. So did you of course, through John!

Talking of the gay bar, remember when it was the Cestrian, and it used to have the peelers on on a Sunday dinner?

Never new that was the Cestrian..Always thought it was round City rd..Poss b4 it was the Scooner---Vince bowdown.gif


John still goes to OT with my old man and brother.

The Cestrian was opposite Sports. It's Bar 6 T 9 now. Never heard of the Scooner, but you are older than me so... Sunday dinner boobs. We used to go for that, then the afternoon lock in in the Waterloo (RIP) when Spenner had it.



Was that definitely the Cestrian mate? seem to remember it being called something else prior to what it is now. Vauguely remember the Jolly Miller on City Road also.

Here's a few for the collection:

The old Woolworths just by the Eastgate Clock, remember the upstairs restaurant?

Penny Lane Records across the road from the old ABC Cinema - still remember those queues for the pics going all the way down the road to the ring road!

Diners Den anyone? Was there one called The Witches Kitchen?

Trickys Barbers in Frodsham Street - The sole survivor from there, Paul, works in The Cutting Shop in Vicars Cross now.

Remember the old Army & Navy Store in what was pretty much a square block of a shop, right next to the car park by Yates.

Pauls the owner is he not?From Pennyfford?

Used to be called The Cutting Room on the rows along from The Boot i think?Who was the tall lad that worked in there,was it Rob?Gareth was the small lad and mad as a frog.Paul,i'm sure was the owner and now the owner of The Cutting shop in Vicars Cross.

My folks met in Burrells where they both worked.The old fella was also the store manager at Cantors(turn your house into a home!),then opposite that the old Co-Op,for a while.


Just to clear this one up, there are 2 Paul's in there - 1 is the owner yep, but the other is from the old Trickys shop.

Yeah the Cestrian was on City Rd and the Jolly Miller was just down some steps by the canal off City Rd.

yes you could do a cracking pub crawl, still a few of the old ones about but sadly the old boozer image is one Chester doesn't seem to want anymore which is a very sad state of affairs. Luckily darts on a Tuesday means we can take in some of the old traditional Chester boozers.

Some of these wine bar type places that crop up do my head in, at the end of the day not everyone can afford to kit themselves out like Gordon Gekko and pay £4 for a bottle of beer, prententious pr*cks

Do you remember Woolworths when it was were "Next" is now? first shop in Chester that used to sell Albums of current Chart hits,but not sung by the original artists,they used to sell well,because they were cheap! On the "Embassy" label i think.
Believe it or not Elton John sang on them when he first started.
Those Albums are collecters items now!

The Talbot... the Great American Disaster ... you must be as old as I am! smile.gif

Used to drink in the Talbot all the time. Best era for me was when Sian Adey Jones used to go in there. She was amazing, could have looked good in a bin bag, and I had the good fortune to go out with one of her mates who was from Bodelwyddan. Used to go up to Stables quite a bit.

Years before that, I remember a little sweet shop near the cross where I used to spend all my pennies on the way home from school. Was next door to Waltons and faced up Northgate St. You had to go down a few steps to get into it. Can't remember what it was called though ... anyone?

I only went to the Great American Disaster once. The food was OK but we were put off by the fact that they added VAT and a service charge on top of the menu prices. angry.gif

As for Sian Adey-Jones .... wub.gif . Where I am working in Western Australia you can still buy postcards, stubbie holders etc displaying her assets in all their glory wink.gif declaring her as a WA beach babe (Thankfully they are 30 year old photos as she must be well into her 50s now)! I'd scan and upload a postcard, but I fear that it would be censored, unless a certain mod could see his way clear to allowing it. Pretty pleeeease, for historical/nostalgic purposes you understand!

Were they the ones call 'Top of the Pops'? They used to bring them out every few weeks and they had a dolly bird of the cover (nothing as classy as Sian Adey-Jones though). I'm sure that we have a few in our loft. They were awful, so yes, I can believe that Elton John sang on them! biggrin.gif

We used to spend a lot of time in Woolworths because they had the best range of Airfix kits which were very popular with lads back then. I wonder how many kids make Airfix kits these days?
