You'd be amazed.
I have noticed that Betty's hotpot dosen't seem to be served in the Rovers anymore, it seems to have been phased out by sandwiches, maybe thats so when she actually does retire, no one will miss her, as there wont be anyone to make the hotpot, or will it be a case of a stranger wandering into the rovers and asking for a Betty's and getting a Fred's instead and then commenting on how things ain't what they used to be, will her hotpots live on after her, or will she just be forgotten?
Getting back on-topic. What's a pub doing employing an 86 year old? That job could go to a young unemployed person.
There's a pub near where I am at the moment (let's just say east Kent) that has had the same landlord since 1948. He's in his late 80s now.
His bed is around the corner of the bar, he doesn't believe in pumps so the beer comes from a tap in the barrell, the till is his pocket and the prices always change.
If you drink there late he leaves the keys and asks you to lock up and pop them through the door when you leave.
It's kitted out in genuine 1960s furniture, with 1970s glasses.
Oh, nobody ever goes there because the only sign that there is a pub is a handpainted bit of cardboard saying "ReAl aLE --- thIS wAy"
It's known as the pub you take somebody else's wife to...
Is this place still open, sounds perfect for a DL meet.
Liz Dawn does not expect to live another year. http://uk.tv.yahoo.c...-123306736.html Bit of a miss not having her on this years list esp after Bill Tarmeys death!
Yet she's still kicking a few years later.
I know it's in bad taste but of the big four foverer presents who'll go first? June Brown, William Roache, Eileen Derbyshire or Adam Woodyatt?
Is Eileen Derbyshire still on the Street? I thought she had left and then remembered that I was thinking of Thelma Barlow.
Yes, she's appearing less often these days but she's still around.
