Thats the place Phil, looks a lot cleaner than I remember it. Had an 'Offi' as well, which I didn't recall.  O0

I think a lot of pubs around that time had off sales, but they quickly were swallowed up by the pub itself as outdoors became less popular.

Countrylad. No Josie was a plump English woman, her husband was also English. Do not recall that barmaid, but there was a Christine who worked there for a long time ( she had four kids ).
 I did not live in the area but had a friend who lived in the maisonettes next door to the pub. Shaun Kelly his wife was Layla, they had a son called Marc.

maltablue, thanks for getting back. Next time I see my brother ( I think we are due for our 5 yearly meet!) I will ask him if he remembers Shaun and Layla.

your welcome. Thinking back, i think there was an Irish Landlord at the Primrose, which was just down the road.I could imagine a fight in there. It was Ansell's beer.  :D
