myself and the staff love the Pub and do everything we can to keep it clean and welcoming to all . as the manager i am not new to the area i have been here since early childhood and seen the area change in many ways.I agree it is such a shame to see so many empty buildings in the area but the future is looking brighter for rockferry.

I worked in Rock Ferry in the early 80's and my in laws still live there. I too have seen a lot of changes, mostly for the best. Unemployment is the biggest problem and that is mirrored nationally.


See you in cyberspace!

i have a book of old photos of the Birkenhead area and there is one shot of this Pub in there
from about 1950 s i think. I had a spell working in there a a part-time Barman during the summer
of 1972. The Landlord then was Max Ithell who was a keen Evertonian . He was a big drinker himself and a smoker also. He died of Cancer and his wife took over the licence of the place.
The regulars raised an awful lot of money for childrens charities throughout the 1970s. The
weekly raffles were run by Paul Dennett and Chris Kennedy -both of them became Teachers.
Chis taught for many years at Rock Ferry High and Paul has been living near Hamburg and
teaching there for over 30 years. Both lads were born and bred Rockferrians as i am myself.
May Jones worked behind the Bar until she was in her 80s ! Only a tiny woman but she could stand
up to any grown man in an argument - and she often did !

What were they thinking of? Comparing the last picture and the one at the beginning of the thread and you just think vandalism. it's obviously the same little corner of the building but the beautiful ornate brickwork just rendered over. What a shame. Progress? I don't think so.

Hard to believe the difference from old and new, would be nice to see if that part of the building is in anyway restorable
