    Default Pub in Toxteth

    Can anyone help me discover the name and location of a pub in the Toxteth area. We knew it as the Snakepit. I don't know if that was it's real name or where it was. I seem to remember it being behind Upper Parliament Street somewhere. I went ther a few times in the seventies, and if I remember right it used to be a right place. I thank you in advance, knowing that someone will know it

    It might be the Alexandra were you shopping?

    Thanks Ged, I remember spending many a Friday afternoon in the Gladray. One of the many shebeens around the city in the seventies and eighties. This was before all day opening, for our younger friends

    Maybe Paddy, didn't ever know the real name. My dad took me there to show me where he was brought up. He was from Upper Hill Street. My dad used to drive and I never noticed where we were going. But I do remember it was like the Alamo. It was the only building standing at the time. It was also an extremly rough house.

    Thanks Lindy. It certainly was all that. When we used to go there, i was amazed at how full it was. Where did they come from? It was as though they had come from Central Casting. It was full of characters. What was the name of the road it was in?

    Ged, if I remember right, there was nothing around it. All the houses were gone. I reckon a cry for help in that bar was a cry in vain.

    I think it was Northumberland st. The pub was tucked away at the back between Northumberland and Stanhope st if I'm not mistaken.

    I can't remember the names of all the roads but I do know they pulled down Arnold Close and Carter st. They built new property there eventually.

    I'd have to look at an old A to Z to refresh my memory.
