The Oakwood, Oakwood, Leeds

Postby Leigh80 » Mon 30 May, 2016 10:09 am

Morning all -

I'm researching The Oakwood Pub for an article I'm writing. I lived in Oakwood as a child, and remember the place fondly, but unfortunately I was too young (just!) to actually drink in the place - I I turned old enough to get away with it, it was turned into a McDonals (which it still is today) As far as I can recall, it was a Beefeater Inn.

Is there anyone on here that would be willing to give me some detail about drinking in there in the 80's and early 90's? I'm particulary interested in:

* What beers were on the bar?
* Do you remember the Grotto? (I do!)- like a kids area with cave walls etc etc
* Who ran the place?
* Anyone have any pictures of around that time?

Feel free to post on here, or if you'd like to remain anon, drop me a message.

Thanks guys!

I used to go in the Oakwood from time to time for the last hour or so on occasional Saturdays. Unfortunately, I can't recall much detail other than we (an old girlfriend and I) used to call the "best" room where we sat - the red room. Alas, I can't be more helpful. 1968, was, after all, a few years ago.
