The Eldern

Picture source: Ray Cole


The Eldern was situated on Eldern, Orton Malborne.
This was a new pub called The Shire Horse on a new estate many years ago on the bus route in Orton Malborne with no garden and no car park and standing alone next to two shops and opposite the local school, the car park being on the opposite side of the shops. one door leading into the lounge and the other into the pool room/ bar . both rooms having a split level seating area the ceiling being painted coffee colour and all walls brick no plaster in this pub. I used to do my disco (sublime soul disco in the small bar) once had some of my limited 12 singles stolen on one night. changed hands a number of times. The location of the pub was all wrong. it was good to start with being close to new homes with just married couples but as children came along there was nowhere for them. so people stopped or change to pubs that had a play area (like the Windmill in Orton Longueville ), too small for eating there.
