Porters, Hoyland, Yorkshire

Picture source: Will Larter


Porters was situated at 17 Milton Road. This pub is now used as an NHS dental clinic.
This pub was known as Oliver's Ale House for decades and was a favourite haunt of Kirk Balk School's Sixth Formers in the 80s. The legend was that, as long as you were well behaved, the staff would
serve you in a nappy! I misspent many Friday night here between the ages of 16 and 18. It was never the same when it became Porters, which was a mistake because the Porter family tried to make it more up market and it failed very quickly.
