I think Hedley had the magic touch cos despite it's location it was a roaring success. He did do a lot of work on it and extended it quite a bit and put a car park in.

At last it seems like Dougies is going to be rocking once more Big Grin

Great bit of news this as I spent many a weekend (and a fortune on beer) in that place during the mid 90's.

Hopefully everyone that missed it and longed for it to re-open will support it.

Hope they do well there. I get the feeling though that this might not happen due to the price of beer etc.

This maybe be 10 years late. Hope I.m wrong.

It was my pub when I lived in Nansen Street in the 60's when it had it's original name the White Lead.
It would have been about two bob a pint (ten pence) then.

Be good to see the booza reopened, it's right eye sore these days.

Sounds like they got big plans for it as wel,, spending £750K and generating 50 jobs!
