............spent a lot of time at the Waggon and Horses Millhouses as my father was a (very) regular customer. First 'dressy up' was the Hare and Hounds in Dore aged 16. Anyone remember the 'Dog' bar men only, and the little glass collector called Daz, if you remember him you will know why he had that nick name!!!!1

was in the Freemasons bottom of Walkley lane 1959 when I was 14. Three of us went in the back yard and ordered 3 halves thro the serving hatch. The bad news was that there was a swimming gala at the basths next door and a couple of teachers from our school spotted us...

15 years old----the Rockingham Arms [ ? ] on Rockingham Street. We used to send the tallest of our gang to the bar and about 5 of us used to sit in a little back room, hoping the Law wouldn 't pop in. The barman [ or landlord ? ] was an old geezer we called ' Pop ' with shaking hands and rheumy eyes----I suppose that 's how we got away with being served so easily !

I assume you mean the first pub you went in without adult supervision? For me that was the Princess Royal at Woodhouse Mill, aged 16.

Pheasant I think it's called on the right going from Fox house to Froggat. 12 or 13 then half fare home on the bus reaking of beer.

Might have been 2 bob a pint I'm not sure.

Me too at 13, it was the South Seas in Broomhill, we were chucked out after trying to buy beer-so the first legitimate, (illegitimate) drink was in the Bell Hagg when I was about 15.

Was that when John and Sandra Harrop ran the South Seas?

The Prince of Wales at the top of Carter Knowle Rd aged about 14. There was a little police station opposite and we figured the police would think that no one under age would be daft enough to go in a pub so close to a police station! We could also get served in the Highcliffe,The Hammer and the Hare and Hounds at Dore. First underage pubs in town were the Albert,the Wap and the Minerva.Looking back at photos of me at that age I think the landlords must have been as drunk as we were or they couldn't see through the smoke!
