Barney's when I were a lad. Never saw anyone remotely famous in there but I did regularly see two birds from school one of whom I was madly in love with yet unable to tell her - shyness eh?- all is not lost, had a brief dalliance with her mate. Funny how things turn out isn't it? I also saw a lad get glassed in there too. Horrible and really out of character for the pub. One of my favourite boozers ever that, right behind Cullens and Whitelocks probably.

What was Cullens called before?

How do Phil, that image is Hunslet I believe. Remember the shops as a kid traveling into Leeds for the games in the sixties.

The pub is the Golden Lion, a building I took an interest in in later life, great, great boozer, traditional pub in every aspect it outlived the shops by some distance. It was one of our (football team) favourite stop offs after games played in leeds. Landlords missus would run upstairs and make great plates of sandwiches for us.

Hope I'm right now.

Anyway, welcome Phil.


Evening Phil, I'm from Stafford which is nowhere near Leeds.

Sheeps, I'm guessing there weren't any cars when you remember that scene.  Dodging horse shite and whatnot.

The pub was the Old Red Lion and it was on Low Rd. Thwaite Gate (pic was taken in the 70's)


Old Red Lion, that's the one.


Course its the Old Red lion you senile suasage. A few strides down the road and you're at the Crooked Billet. Just across from the Red Lion was the Punch Clock. Now a crappy eating  type pub spot called the Crooked Clock or something

The street opposite the Old Red Lion was Spring Grove Street, and about 4 streets up on the left was Belmont Mount where I lived from 1957 - 62. Back to back, bath in the kitchen, outside share toilet ... all the mod cons.
