  1. I appreciate that this thread is a few years old now but people are correct in stating that the pub in question is The Talbot. Our band (Millennium) played in the cellar bar regularly – often free of charge in the late 1970s. Keith and Georgina (landlord and landlady respectively) always loved it when we played as we would bring in many punters whatever day we played. Great times!

  3. I have just recently found this site and I know it is nearly 2 yrs ago, but I think the pub closest to the Globe and directly opposite would be the Castle & Anchor. I should know as my parents managed same. (Jack & Kathleen Quinn)

  5. Sorry Tony the pub next but one to Hardy”s was The Talbot. The Lambton Castle was further down towards King St opposite Maxwells corner. Hope this clarifies it for Brian.

  7. Can someone jog my memory – what was the name of the pub next door but one to Hardy & Co? I remember reading a story about this pub some years ago. When the Shadows (Cliff Richards backing group) were appearing at the Globe opposite, they used to spend a lot of their spare time in there playing pool etc. It was also in there that they wrote one of their recordings “Stars Fell On Stockton”, probably a “B” side to one of their hits.
