Raven Tavern, 12 Fitzwilliam Street, George Haywood.

A delightful place ... one of my favourites.

Wish I'd been alive when it was open. My great-aunt Connie worked there for many years.

I seem to remember a former "Buffer girl" serving in the late 1970's. Lot of tattoos, parts of several fingers missing from her previous work.

Welcome back Richard!!

 

Auntie Connie worked for Richards' for at least 25 years, not sure where she ended up after that, but know she worked at the Raven for some time. She's probably not the same woman you remember as I'm sure she didn't have tattoos. Got some great photos of her behind the bar somewhere, must find them out!

 

Worth noting the Palm Tree in Walkley has reopened as 'The Raven' too!
