Think I remember Terry who was before Mary and Gary, but that was at the start of my drinking history. The latter I think went to the magpies in Coleshill but not there any more.

Back when I was 18, the White Hart / Poachers / Greyhound used to be absolutely heaving on Friday and Saturday evenings. Remember a landlord in the white hart who used to wear a bow tie - was it Antoine?  I think the closure of Newland Park as a college had a big impact on the local pubs and economy.

I came across this thread looking for old pictures of the village etc!    I remember the Poachers well in the days that Gary and Mary were the landlords.   Good days!   Whatever happened to them?  Fair while ago now though!

The Poachers came into being about 1983 ( i know that because I worked there, underage). CAn't remember the name of the landlord. Had some riotous nights in there.

Seem to remember going to school with a Davina Bose. I think her parents lived in the Bakers Arms but could be mistaken. Did'nt they have ROB meetings there at one time?

The Bakers Arms had 3 bars, a saloon bar, a private (snug) bar, and a larger public bar at the back.

The bakers arms changed to the poachers in the early 1980s I've got a video of one of my birthday's when I had a police women stripper some of my best days were spent in that pub I'm sure if you asked anyone in there mid fifty's you will hear some great stories there was a big brass ships Bell behind the bar but one of the landlords stole it we did go to Portsmouth to get it back but they refused and called the police so we positioned to the brewery but they had left was a big loss at the time !
