I knew the copper,I never knew it as the copper kettle,we always thought it was the copper because of the police station around the corner and the fact it was usually full of them (off duty of course) i've learnt something!
Hi , sorry it seems my memory has played tricks,so it was called the copper, well i done better than my mate who i went to the pub with he could not remember it at all, i dont know why i thought it was called the copper kettle whether the pub sign was of a kettle or there was one hanging from the ceiling not sure, mind you this was about 42 years ago and i was drunk, i also never remember the pub being on the corner, all i remember is going down stairs to a bar or something, did it have a downstairs? or was that in my imagination?
Thanks for your replies
A copper kettle sign is ringing bells,yes there was a bar out the back,not sure if it was downstairs (i'm as good as you)maybe,I know there were stairs leading down to the back exit,I drank in there for years and never knew about the other bar or exit.
Hi,Long Term Local
thanks for the info it seems my memory was correct about
the downstairs bar, that makes me feel better, i am still wondering why i thought it was the copper kettle , the only thing i can think of maybe they was keeping the downstairs as a separate issue?
