Tim Darling 1981-1983 Lived at 137 Beaufort Street. The Roebuck was our local pub and we became a bit of a pain to the Landlord Ian. I also played there a couple of times with a band from my home town Andover, various 137 friends would join us up on stage. All great fun, great days. We went to other local pubs in the area but The Roebuck was our main haunt and I can still see the look of dismay on the Landlord's face as we marched through the doors.
