A half of mild and a bottle of brown ale, what was that called? I don't think is was a black velvet.

That's what I thought, someone just mentioned it on the radio and said his dad used to drink this years ago confused 

I think a black velvet was guiness and champagne or guiness and cider

I dunno never been in Harrys bar, its a bit to far away to stagger home. Do pubs still sell Babychame? that was all the rage in the 70s along with a cherry on a stick

In the 1960's I would go to Wigan Tech on Parsons Walk 7-00 till 9-00 at night.
Coming home I would call in The Crofters (I think) on Market St for an pint of
Watneys Red Barrel, 2 shillings if memory serves, fabulous to a young sophisticate
from Ince. Then home and my Mum would have a beef dinner waiting, happy days.

In earlier times, it invented its own range of drinks which it called Blobs, which consisted of sweet Australian wine and brandy, (a fortified wine), sugar, lemon and hot water. The interior of the pubs had a Victoriana feel and look


From here. Im' begnning to type like Corky  affraid

When I worked in The Royal Oak for Timmy Dickens (happy days) all the semi scousers used to drink Twighlight when they came to Central Park (split pint, bitter and lager)
Tommy reckoned it was because they were used to Greenall Whitley pubs and their bitter was so bad.

It's 40 odd years since I got told to leave the White Swan for telling the landlord his Greenhalls bitter tasted like cat pee.

Ah the memories.  Laughing
