    Violence and drug taking in Woolton Village pub.
    I find this quite depressing Woolton, especially Woolton Village, has always been such a lovely place. The low life have been creeping in for some time like a disease. It's horrible how nice places are ruined

    The Village Inn pub in Woolton falls under spotlight after violence and drug-taking claims
    May 14 2010 by Luke Traynor, Liverpool Echo

    CAMERAS are to be installed in the toilets of a Liverpool pub to stop customers taking drugs.

    The Village Inn in Woolton fell under the spotlight yesterday following allegations of violence and cocaine use.

    Police highlighted five incidents which have happened at the Quarry Street premises since Christmas.

    In the early hours of December 25, a man was assaulted outside leaving him with bruising and broken teeth.

    Officers were called to the scene and a number of people were arrested for drunk and disorderly behaviour.

    On February 10, police received intelligence that drinkers were inside the Village Inn taking drugs.

    Just over three weeks later, on March 5, officers went with a drugs dog and found three people in possession of cocaine.

    They were arrested.

    Five days later on March 10, the female designated premises supervisor (DPS), the person effectively running the pub, was arrested for drunk and disorderly behaviour.

    And most recently, on May 2, a man was knocked unconscious inside the Village Inn , suffering a chipped tooth and needing four stitches.

    Yesterday, a review hearing took place before Liverpool councillors to examine the pub’s licence.

    The DPS, who began her job in August, was allowed to remain in post and the panel also ruled against the police’s wish to reduce opening hours to 11pm.

    However, they approved a move to install cameras in the toilet area to try and deter people taking drugs.

    Police said the last complaint relating to the Village Inn was back in April 2008.

    Sgt Peter Howells said: “We will now try and work with the DPS and pub management to ensure the premises meets the licensing objectives for crime and disorder.”

    They ain't half disappearing now. The one inside the strand went last year, Jollies closed at some point. The way things are going I'm surprised Knowsley Rd still has two

    My old fave match day haunt 'The Wharf' on Merton Road too. The old corner local is increasingly becoming a thing of the past.

    The steel sheets were coming down on the Coach & Horses Woolton this afternoon.It's been shutted for about a week.
    The Village went down the nick when it changed hands.It seems the new 'owners' have just come back from running a bar in Spain.

    I just wonder what that might mean? It's a while since I was in Woolton, but the crew in the "Elephant",were less than welcoming,and that was in the afternoon!

    The Pineapple on Park Road,old coaching inn dating back 150 years, and one on this site since the 1700`s

    The Anglesea on Beresford Road with the usual purple bin

    The Wellington on the corner of Mill St and Shelmore Rd

    When I saw this on Mill St my mind said "pub" I asked a local and he told me it was an Higsons pub named the "Dead House" aka the Derby Arms converted to flats.

    on the corner of Charleston St, nameplate says "known locally as the Nutty"


    Herculaneum Bridge Hotel,Dingle also known as "Peglegs" going back to when it was managed by a ex sailor with a wooden leg, Built in Victorian times on rocky ground by the looks of it

    Used to drink in all these pubs, specially the Nutty when I was Living in Althorpe Street and then Cockburn street back in the early 80's. My local was The Bleak but spent a lot of time in the Pheonix as well.Are they still going?

    Yes, the bleak house and Phoenix are still going. My pop in law hails from off Cockburn st - but from way back.

    Had a pint or two in there in the 70s when my grandad lived in Nuttall Street. I always preferred 'The Widows' (or 'The Dundreary' as it was officially known) a few yards along Wavertree Road.
