Anchor Inn, Stamford, Lincolnshire

Picture source: Simon Woolley

The Anchor Inn was situated at 1 St Martins High Street and is now used as a Pizza Express.
My grandparents Austin (Augustine) and Ivy Mannion ran this pub during the late 1950's

 I recall a Friday night session at the Anchor in August 1975.  None of us in the group were 18 but the landlady seemed quite happy to take our money for about ten rounds before waltzing over to our table just before closing time to ask us  if we could  " guarantee that we were all 18".
We all  said that we could which evidently seemed to  satisfy her on the point as she happily took the price of another round from us before we left.
No fake I D required in those days.
