    Default memory of specific pubs

    I have been to probably less pubs than most on here but going back a few years some pubs stand out for a specific reason .Usually its quite a minor thing but it sticks in your mind even in my case 40 odd years.Here are a couple of mine
    I went for a weeks holiday to Boscombe in 1976 the hottest year on record.Opposite our bed and breakfast was

    The Seagull- they were serving Brickwoods beers a brewery I had never heard of and it was good.So good I got hammered. The beer pump had a clear barrel shape thing with the beer in it and as he pulled the hand pump it poured into the glass is another thing that sticks out.

    Another pub on that holiday was the Fox Inn Corfe Castle a quaint old pub with beer poured straight from the barrel.Must have been decent but cant remember but do remember the old landlord.A guy come in and politely asked do they do lager.The old Dorset landlord told him they do not do none of this new fangled beer only ale.The guy left and the landlord started ranting about Londoners coming down here with there new fangled ideas about beer.
    Remember it like yesterday although I am not sure what I did yesterday.
    Any thoughts on this subject.

    Spookily I was in the Seagull in 1976, it was an electric diaphragm pump that was installed, the first I had ever seen as it was more a northern thing. I actually remember the day more for a young lady called Abby who I met on the beach that day after closing time (2:30pm).
    There are many diseases,
    that strike people's kneeses,
    Covid19! is one by name
    It comes from the East
    Packed in bladders of yeast
    So the Chinese must take half the blame.

    Apologies to Spike Milligan

    I suppose the pubs did shut in the afternoon.
