South Western Inn

Picture source: David Fisher

The South Western Inn was originally called the Railway Refreshment Inn and first appears in the 1871 census for Weeke and so was built between 1861 and 1871. It was located on Station Hill and was the closest pub to the station. Its name changed to the South Western Inn in 1920 . The site remained as a pub until 1992 when it closed and is now the Register Office for Births, Deaths and Marriages.

John Kelly 1971/1974 Was in the Pay Corps. This was the go to pub. Juke box had the best of soul music records. Also had a great table football game. Had a few rammies at closing time with some of the civvies. Great times had by all.
Philip Duncombe 1966/1072 I used to spend all my time in this pub. I was at sea and used to meet up with some old school friends when I was on leave. Great sounds from the juke box and spent hours playing table football. We would go and play cards when it shut round someone's house until the small hours then I'd walk home across the city to bed. Great memories, good old times.
