    Storrsdale or Storesdale? Is it on a road leading off Mather Avenue? If so, I occasionally used it in the late 60's when fed up with the Rose, on Rose Lane.

    On the same page of photos is the Inglenook, at the Dingle end of Ullet Road. When I drank in the Grapes in Aigburth - mid 60's and long gone - we'd head to the Inglenook on a Friday night for a couple of pints of Carling Black Label - it was the only pub we knew which sold lager at that time. Who'd have guessed the way in which lager would spread across all pubs?

    thats the one, but it wasn't really called the storrsdale; i think it might have been the something Abbey. back in the late 60s tetley revamped all their pub signs and i remember the new sign had the other name on it


    so many people called it the storrsdale that they eventually changed the name

    Don't remember the actual name being other than Storesdale, but seem to remember people calling it Flinn's or Quinn's - but memory may be playing tricks.
