My earliest memory or the Cavalier club was going to a wedding reception upstairs, on Saturday, 5th May 1973. I was to young to go in the bar, so as soon as the meal was over I ran home as fast as I could to make sure I saw the FA Cup final at home. Apparently all the men went downstairs to the bar to watch the the match and the women stayed upstairs. I'm sure it was a men only bar and thats where the TV was. I suppose when the wedding was planned months before nobody could ever have predicted that Sunderland would be in the Cup Final.

In later years I used to play pool and darts in the bar and loved the one arm bandit outside the bar door, it was the only one I ever won any money on.

Before there was all day licensing hours it was one of the few places you could get an early pint in the evening , I think it used to open at 4.00pm,( 6.00pm everywhere else) which was handy if you were going to a match midweek because they used to kick off at 7.30pm in those days.
The cavalier was my dads local we lived just round the corner consequently I had my wedding reception there in 1974 and it turned out my father-in-law was a joiner and he made the bar upstairs many a time my dad and new husband were in the bad books after they decided to stay for the lock ins the T-bone steaks were the best meal we ever had at the time.Smile
