I used to meet my dad here after work every night and get a lift home, went on to work and play darts here for a while. Propriator at the time was Norman Poole, 1986-ish. Used to fancy his youngest daughter, took her to the Unit 4 in Wallasey to see Rocky 4. Didn't work out though, ah well.

did the Little Brown Jug only have a bar and no parlour
I remember about 14 of us doing Zorbas dance on the wooden floorboards in there
I was born about 150 yards from there and when we went on a Pub crawl starting York, Waterloo,George and Dragon, Firemans we usually ended up in the Little Brown Jug

It was our lunchtime Pub as we worked over the way, and it did a good chilli and chips.

Currently trying to find out which brewery owned it around about the 1880s. smirk
