Anyone know anything about its History? I used to frequent this quaint little establishment on Wednesday nights. First, play 5-a-side at Guinea Gap, then on to Davy Jones'. Blood hell, there were more 'dogs' in there than at Crufts' bananalove

My dad used to go there. He said they had one of those arcade machines where you bet on the horses and they race round in the glass case. Him and his mates worked out the sequence in which the horses win (no computerisation then) and then won loads of money betting on the correct horse. They won so much that the manager got fed up with them and switched it off.

Sorry that's all I know about the place.

Remember it well from the 1960s. Don’t think I ever went in there sober as we used to go there after the pubs had closed (10.00pm in those days I think!!). Always got a stay-behind cos we knew the manager/part owner, Ray Wood. Ray later became Wirral Council’s tourism manager. I think there was some connection with the Melody Inn Club in Grove Road. I remember it always being freezing in the winter and hot in the summer cos the windows wouldn’t open. Got a reputation for being a bit of a dive (you’re probably right with your Crufts comment now I think back!!) and was a bit scruffy but had good beer, good music and ‘flexible’ opening hours. What else could a bunch of young lads want?

Don’t know a lot about the History. It was in the Eggy Ferry terminal building and I think there was a club there before (the Navy Club?).

Yeah, that could be. I often wondered why a late night drinking dive would be so out of the way, it must have been converted from some much more respectable type of venue.

Thanks for the link. That photo took me back a bit but I don't think that I ever saw the place in the daylight.

Bloody hell, if they were dogs when you had your beer goggles on then they must have been a bit roverish.
