Anyone have memories of the Toll Gate at Pitsmoor Road ?

Yeah had great times from mid 70's to 1980...used the pub regular great atmosphere. Sadly like all the other great pubs now a fragment of  our memories.

This was my local for many years. There was a bunch of us who always sat near to the pinball machine. Mick and Pete Dobson and Dave Baker were just a few of "our gang".  

The table next to the jukebox was always occupied by by a different "gang". Gripper and Alan Bailey spring to mind. 

The days spent in there were some of the happiest times of my life.

We lived at Firvale, the Cannon Hall, Sportsman and Tollgate were our favorite dives, this was pre 1972 the year we shipped out to Auz.  We loved the Tollgate, it was a nice quiet pub, never any trouble. I remember the pinball well, wasted many an hour on it. Only names I can recall in the Gate were Dave McCambridge and his mate Bob (?) who had a deformed leg or hip and walked with a serious limp. I checked out the Tollgate on Google Earth just recently - it's now a supermarket, the happy days are gone forever Kidneystone.

My father was gutted when it closed down.

If ever he disappeared in the evening The Toll Gate was the place to find him.
