I remember this pub. But - strange - we always referred to it as The Rockville. Until I saw this pic I never realised what the correct name was.

I think I first met my first wife in there.

Vans/builders have been in and out of there for the last couple of weeks.

I was waiting for one of the For Sale/To Let signs to go up but nothing appeared.

I'm pleased to report that it is still open as a pub.

People were outside on the benches enjoying a drink in the sunshine this afternoon.

The Rock Villa (Rockville) is being turned back into a pub again, the building has been done up (very nicely outside) and a license was applied for last month (11th June).

Cutting about the demolition of the old Rock Villa hotel, in 1936. That part of Rock Ferry was one of the first to be developed in the 1830s and 40s, at the same time as Rock Park but on a more modest scale.
