Pub's name at Anston

Recommended Posts

In the 80's and early 90's there was a pub at either North or South Anston that I can't remember the name of. It's driving me mad and I've googled it but nothing's come up so I'm guessing it's not there anymore. I'm sure it was a man's name(Tom Something?). Anyone have a clue?

You are thinking of the "Tom Cobley" that was actually in Dinnington, I used to run the door there.

 

The "Cart Wheel" is probably the one you are thinking of in Anston.

Where was that? I can only remember the "Leeds Arms" and "The Loyal Trooper" at South Anston. "Williams bar" and "The Cutler" at North Anston.

I remember all those but it's not one of them. Thanks anyway, it'll probably come to me when I'm not racking my brains.

Oh I missed the first line of your reply, yes it was Tom Cobley. Thanks for that.

Was there one called Wee Willie or have I dreamt that?

Never heard of the cart wheel and I lived in Anston for 2 decades and my parents and brother still live there.

Yes that is now called Little Mester.

 

And the Williams Bar as per post #2 in between.

Used the Loyal Trooper around 1971. If I remember correctly, they served spirits in quarter of a gill measures as opposed to a sixth.
