    Lived in Waterloo St so Linden for me. Sid had a thing about my missus and kept putting her behind the bar, which was handy from my point of view. Iron Duke also had fairly non regular hours in those days as well

      There was one near St. Peters called the office club - i think that's where it was. Another was the silver slipper behind waitrose in western road.

      Ah, the Iron Duke. In slightly more modern times run by an alcoholic called Joe Noonan. He used to be the manager of the Alexandra Hotel in Hove. When they went bust over night all the artwork and all the contents of the cellar went missing. He then proudly announced he was gay and left his wife of 20+ years !!!

      Tuesdays used to be 'market day' in Haywards Heath. Not sure why, must have been a market at one time in the dim distant past. Council must have forgotten to repeal the all-afternoon drinking bye-law that was once presumably associated with thirsty market traders, because the Burrell was open all Tuesday afternoons. Rarely made it back to the office in Perrymount Road before about half-four, and only then to have some strong coffee before heading off home, pleasantly pickled.
      Remember those days well Tom Hark, in fact i spent a few shifts behind the bar there, most likely served you lol, though Liverpool arms was my local

      Three come to mind and all were gay, but then in the 70's that was the only place to get a drink out of hours.
      Bar above a shop in Kings Road (may have been Catlins rock shop). Open all day.
      Bar above the shops in Rottingdean. Turn towards the sea at the crossroads. Another day time spot.
      Bar in the cellar of the now closed Mariner (East St & Seafront, Brighton). After hours spot till 3am (all other bars, clubs etc closed at 11pm). Floppy bit of ham and lettuce was handed around to get around the law. Worst memory was having a wee and sharing the only toilet in the gay bar. Couldn't go!!!
      Should point out that I was with my girl friend at all these places.


      If I remember correctly, the bar above the rock shop was the 42 Club.

      Same. Liverpool arms was my (work) local also - apart from Tuesdays. Was in the Livvy so often that the sit-down Galaxian in there was the only arcade game I every mastered . It was said that Old Jim never left the pub. Apart from the day he left in a box, that is. Great old pub, great old days.

      I seem to remember one near here called The Belvedere Club.
      Anyone else?
