    That was my penny-for-the-guy spot when I was a kid, and I was known to have a drink in there later

    A mate of mine was a taxi driver in the 90's.
    He told me a story which he swore was true -
    He had a pickup for four mature ladies (cough) fairly early one Saturday evening going to the Wynford as his last job of a Saturday 'day' shift.

    He said that all the way they were being very flirty with him, teasing him and saying that he was quite fit etc, and more double entendres than Benny Hill.
    He soon noticed that one in the back really was a bit of a looker. They started exchanging glances in the rear view mirror and this went on and on until they got to the Wynford.
    When they got out having paid, the other two girls said to the other , who was still sat in the back - 'hey c'mon girl, lets go'.
    'Aww, I dun need to bother goin in there now babes', she says - 'I'm going home with Drive' .

    ; )

    Me and a couple of mates went there one night and my one mate had an affliction, a nervous tick which meant he would twitch quite violently every few seconds . We hadn't even had a drink and the doorman said he's not coming in he's pissed out of his head. After some explaining he finally let our mate in. Once in we went up to these three birds to chat them up, our mate walked up to this one bird, twitched, and she immediately started dancing thinking that's what he was doing, I was on the floor laughing.

    Proper scrumpy house that was. The landlord wouldn't let you take your pint of scrumpy into the lounge because he said it would dissolve the carpet :hehe:

    Great pic. Weird that it's gone now.

    I wonder if there's as many drug deals going on in the car park behind the place now as there was in my day :hehe:

    Would love a picture of the Panorama before it became the Traders Tavern.
    Seem to remember a load of Grangetown skins made it their local when I was a nipper!
