Did you know that it was called the Piggy as a shortening of the name The Pigmeal. Don' t know where the name came from but that's what it was when I was a nipper in 40's.

The story I was told (in the late 70's) was that many years before, during wintertime , the landlord served up bowls of broth & stew, but when the spoons kept 'disappearing' they began to serve it without cutlery so the stew had to be eaten straight from the bowl 'like pigs from a trough' .

Most likely just a good story , but one I've never forgotten .

Surprised that you can remember anything from the late 70's, P.
Who told you that one, "The Acid Man".

Before I ever knew the Acid Man K , first started drinking in there summer '77 & I think it may have been Phil Turner who told the story , or was it Kenny Foster .....

Anyway , never let a good story stand in the way of the truth !

Any chance of a copy of that SMM DVD (must get a new keyboard , bloody question mark has died).

Couldn't drink in there as a youth because I couldn't stand Higsons Ale. A lot of folk who did go in there used to swear by it. Remember the old grannies etc. getting jugs of ale from there to take home, women, or should I say ladies, didn't used to drink in bars then. There used to be a side door in Brook Street which is where they went for it.

Discovered this Pub on the way home from Peerless Thirsty Thursday.

They have a parrot that swears, well worth a visit for that alone!
