Went there in the late 60,s supposed to be a bit of a pick up spot...I never went again as the friday night selection was very poor on the night I went.??

Sam and Lil, etc. resident turn there. Anyone remember the Empire Inn, almost opposite the Minerva? It was a Mansfield house that got a lot of the acts from the Empire theatre at various times. Also remember Brian at the Highcliffe for some years when we lived at Greystones.

pjkay: I've had server probs and think you may have had the same...

send us a p.m. if you like - Don.

'Tread carefully because you tread on my dreams'. So the great poet said. That was the first boozer I ever went in and got a drink aged 16. What an experience, I've said it before on other threads but it was like entering into a wall of sound with a pint or two at the end of it. I dont know who the landlord was but it was in 1949.

In the early 60's my then boyfriend's band played there every week for a while, I used to go but was so nervous that I would sit right next to his drums, although I can't remember any trouble.

Didn't the Minerva become the Yorkshire Grey and later demolished ?

A friend and I worked at Arthur Bridgens brass founders and regularly popped in the nearby Minerva for a lunchtime drink. Think it was Stones.

 

They sometimes had a band playing, I think that was also at lunchtime.

It was a Tennants house in 1960.
