Ship Leopard



The Ship Leopard was situated on Havant Street. This pub has now been demolished. It was a Friary Mews brewery owned pub and was very much a dockworker and sailors chosen haunt, going back many years to the early days of the dockyard . Two beers served on tap, bitter and mild, the food was cheese and pickled onion rolls . Outside toilet, all very basic - but great atmosphere, considered just a little bit "rough", but rarely any trouble . The landlord saw to that; threw out a whole rugby team one night for being rowdy . And him only 5'8".! The publican in 1963/64 was Brian Keeble.
