Share your memories of old Wisbech pubs





There was more than 100 pubs in Wisbech, now the numbers are dangerously close to single figures.

To share the stories and memories of these long-since closed pubs we need your help.

Was it the beer, the staff or something else which made the pub a hit - for you?

In November, we shared how author Andy Ketley was writing books about the hostelries of Wisbech.

At the time he recalled “I'd go round the pubs as a youngster in the late Sixties when they were buzzing and apart from my family's local, The Locomotive, they've almost all gone."

He would travel back from Wales every other weekend.

"It was never really about the beer, in those days it was Watney’s, pretty horrible stuff. It was the talk, the people, the landlords and landladies, the regulars, the teams. It still is.”
