I couldn't say - The Beagle is not my local.

 

I just saw it on the auction site and posted it for local PX interest.

Memories of Joe include

 

I went in the beagle first when I was about 17 he served me without a problem (our old fella ran the tote for years so he knew the family) on the night of my 18th I asked for a pint and he asked me if I ;) was old enough.

 

Beer used to go up 1/2p a time in those days ,hed get me every time by when say it was 14 1/2p i¬d say "you want t`half Joe" as I sorted my money and he`d have pulled himself a glass before I knew what hit me "aye I`ll have one wi thi lad"

 

Top landlord ,proper landlord Mrs Williams was a "lady" and neither deserved the waste of space they were lumbered with.

What waste of space are you on about?

I remember Pete Norman went to the serving hatch every day for 5 Park Drive

until one day he said no to him,Pete asked him why not? to which Joe replied

"There,s ony thee that bleedin buys em so ave stopped gerrin em" so then he

had to persuade Mark Atkinson to go halves with him for ten.

Surely you don't mean their Brian ?. He was spot on when they first moved in. In fact he was OK right up to his first nervous breakdown. After that he used to get really p****d when Joe's dog "Grip" used to beat him at cards whilst playing in the car park. Remember their Brian dragging Bill Smith and me out of the tap room to watch the dog, as Brian was sure it was cheating.

You couldn't say no to Brian at that time, as it wasn't in his vocabulary, and a refusal usually met with his tattooed hand grabbing your collar. He could be as quick as lightning, and thinking back now his hands were massive.
