    Rex Ham

    They say nostalgia isn’t what it used to be, but whilst having banter with Daave63 in another thread, I started recalling pubs I drank at in Wrexham and my favourite used to be The walnut in Rhosddu. After a little search of my memory, I recall the landlord and landlady were Fred and Tess. Now Tess, could be the funniest, most amusing person in town, but cross her and you were in for a rough ride. Even Rhosddu’s finest gave her a wide berth at times! Anyone else used to drink there or have a memory to share?



    Back to the late 70’s.

    The Horns, pay for the 1st game of pool and jam the coin slot half in with a small coin – play free for the rest of the day.

    The Raglan, populated by murderers and vicious old ladies sipping Border Barley Wine.

    The Jockey, shithole.

    The Seven Stars, Welsh Fusilier & The Elephant & Castle, full of murderers.

    The Horseshoe, Bank St, Nice, tiny little pub, busy with more than 8 people.

    The Jolly Tavern, nice & dark, got caught with someone elses girlfriend in there.

    The Nags Head, nice pub.

    The Mitre & The Old Three Tuns, simple and unpretentious.

    The Golden Lion, High St, nice old pub, queue to get a ‘booth’ down the back.



    Fairfield Tavern – pub of Wrexham footballers…
