Does anybody remember the New Ferry Hotel, I once worked there for about 2 years and realy enjoyed it. As a matter of fact I meet my partner there while he was working on the big houses at the bottom of the dell. He called into the Pub(sad for him) but great for me because once I had seen him that was it, all the other fellas never stood a chance even though they tried to get round me and kept asking for a date, but the young stallion won. This Pub holds lots of good memories for me as I served my dad when he came in which was every Fri-Sun sadly not with us now.I am still with my fella after 34 years(served st least two life sentences)

I knew Max Ithell and his wife Maureen. Maureen is in her 80's now but unlike May Jones is no longer pulling pints. But like May she can still be a fiercesome lady! I remember quite a few of the Rock Station bar staff from the 70's - Nellie Jones, Barbara Quayle, Dick Ganley and Margaret. All lovely, loyal and hardworking.

I think this was done many years before because under the render are tiles ..... they look very similar in size to the ones that cover the front of the Bedford Pub.... One of the gents that frequents the Rock tells me the Bedford and Rock had some family connection years ago and the Bedford was known as Lukes and the Rock was Ritchies .... The lady who owned worked or managed the Rock had a surname of Richardson .....

Yeah - we always referred to the Bedford as Luke Lee's.

Apparently it was renamed to "The Rock" sometime ago, either ways, it was on fire today and the police are treating it as arson.
