How many different pubs did we 15:09 - Apr 10 with 3377 viewsTNT

frequent on the way to watching The Mighty Swans at The Vetch Field? The pubs may well not have been in the Swansea vicinity, if you travelled from further afield, and had a sneaky one en route, or may have been regular matchday jaunts.

I'll start with an obvious one, and await the more obscure:

(1). The Builders

When I was younger it was starting at the White Rose ot Oystercatcher in Mumbles, while watching for the bus to come in. Wherever I/we started we usually ended up in the Clarence, most times it was straight there, other times there were several calls on the way, usually in the Sandfields area.

Just my opinion, but WTF do I know anyway?

In the mid 80’s when we were 16/17 yrs old we use to drink in a pub tucked away in the Sandfields
a couple of streets from the away end called the St Helens,the old fella in there was great and he knew we were under age he even saved our arses once there were about 4 of us in there when a load of Wolves casuals started coming in and stopped them claiming a private party was going on 👍

For the Hereford contingent, it was a long drive over the Beacons, ending up parked outside the Queens Hotel for top grub and several pints of real ale, before a quick walk through the marina to the East Terrace.

Pantygwydr. First pub I've been to where I didn't need to order my pint, the bar staff knew what me and my mate always drank and started pouring as we came in.
Friday night games when the ladies darts team were playing could be a bit scary. Always remember the raffle, first prize one of the team would cook your Sunday dinner.

Adam and Eve. Straight off the train, then in for a good few. Lots of Irish builder boys in there in those days.

I was a student in crydiff in the early '80s. Mates from all over the country wanted to go see a game at The Vetch. They chose Spurs. Our mini bus stopped in The Cape Horner for a couple o' wets..

Usually about a dozen off us, late 70s, 80s. Good few pints in there.
I remember an old Irish guy called Sandy. He worked as a chargehand on the marina flats I think.
He lived in a room above the pub. Short guy about 60. Boy he could drink.

My dads favourite when I was younger, he played darts for them.

But for me before I moved away was the builders, another of my dads haunts, God rest his soul.

What was the landlord of the Builders name back in the last throws of the Vetch days?

About 5 foot with a syrup on his bonce, always wore a crimson jacket that was 5 sizes too big for him...

Banned a load of us from the Gari

Clarence for about a dozen of us, as you walked through the door we all sat on the right (before it was refurbed) we had the odd one in the Builders and the Gari,

As a 15 year old couple of us use to go in the 4J's on Northampton lane as we knew we'd get a pint

The hair and the beard have gone I am now conforming to society, tis a sad day The b*stards are coming back though
