Re: Your first pint
No idea where I had my first pint but would have been around 1984. Only ever drunk Bitter unless it's a heat wave. Find myself drinking more Guinness nowadays if the only thing available is a poncy flowery IPA.
All I remember was that you could easily get 5 pints for a fiver. Those were the days..

Re: Your first pint
The Prince George, Thornton Heath and whatever cheapo cider they served at the time (1979). One one my school friend's Dad was the landlord so it was free and his Dad had a very lax attitude to drinking.
Also responsible for my first hangover and have never touched cider since.

Happy memories of the Harrow in the 80s. Used to go there with my eldest brother, saturday night before a party, we always met these two girls, one had italian parents and said she was called Dino, her friend was fat so we called them Dino and Pebbles.

Also used to rock up for their famous sunday roast, take a ticket and wait for your name to be called.

Re: Your first pint
Moved to the Channel Islands when I was 12, so my first pint was in a pub called the SeaView on Alderney, circa 1975, I guess.

Probably a pint of Breda (a Dutch Lager that was the regular pint), served by the most beautiful bum in a pair of cut-off shorts a 15 year-old could ever imagine, called Sarah. I spent all summer in there but I was far too young and far too naive.....sigh.

Coach and Horses Danehill,Chelwood Gate.

Re: Your first pint
1988 the Rose and Crown Maldon.

Castelmaine 4X somewhere around 1.50

Recall all the old boys in the place bemoaning the fact that we would some day have to pay 2 pounds for a pint.

Re: Your first pint
The Harrow, Hornchurch. The landlord pointed out that it would probably be our only pint

Re: Your first pint
Bitter End in Romford would serve you at 15+ back in the day if you had a bit of top lip bum fluff and a deep voice

Re: Your first pint
The Slaughtered Lamb, 1981, somebody missed the dartboard when I walked in.

Hammer and Pickle 1:41 Sun Jan 14
Re: Your first pint
Thinking about it, probably the Hare & Billet or the Princess of Wales, summer of 1982.

Was a lunchtime regular at the Lamb in Theale Green round the corner from 6th form college at the local Comprehensive - we’d play pool in the public bar and slap the dub b-side of Sofia George’s Girly Girly on the jukebox while the teachers sat around in the saloon bar. Remember the day when pints went over one pound.
