I was a regular there every weekend around '84-'85. Great pub. Every Friday and Saturday it was The Angel followed by Stairways.

There was a band called Lunar Apple used to drink in there (& smoke waccy baccy when the landlord wasn't looking). Always fancied the blonde girl who hung around with them.

Ive got Nestonlad's photo as my facebook photo these days.
Regular routine back in the them thar late 80's was usually a bottle of Dog in there, round to the Fireman's then into Stairways for a night of Ye Heavye Metale.
When the Angel came down, it was over to the Commodore instead, at the time owned by Pete (since sadly passed away)

Most of these pictures are already on this site but harder to find. I am adding them to relevant posts making them easier to find when doing a search.
If anyone is sick of me doing this let me know please. wink
