Thanks for that Yorkie, I'm pretty sure the pub in your pic. is the one we used, though I don't remember the area being so built up around it. I do remember we used the room at the pointed end of the pub though, this was back in the seventies. Ta.

Its the 'Highland' not the 'Highlander'.

Regarding the Fulneck pub there is a full article in the latest Squeaker magazine.

When i lived iin Leeds some years ago four of us used to spend early Saturday evening in some City Centre Pubs and always made a point of ending up in the Templar about 9 p.m. before heading back to Beeston to end the evening. A really pleasant place and good beer / clientlele.
Some time after the all day drinking hours came into force i asked one of the lads if he still called in Saturday's nights there.
His reply was " Having called in recently around 9.p.m. i would not go in there again without borrowing a Suit of Armour from Temple Newsam " and that maybe that's how it got it's name. The Knights popping in for a quick one.

Talking of pub names I wonder if anyone knows if the differing spellings of the very old General Eliott pub on Vicar Lane is an error or a deliberate mistake. The pub name and a large window state 'General Eliott' but on two other equally large windows it states 'General Elliot'. I'm :? but that's easily done ;).

There is a thread headed LS1 General Elliot where Leodian asked the
same question but there was no answer from anyone circa June 2014.

Eliott is the correct spelling, which means that two of the etched windows are incorrect.

Hi dogduke. Apologies for not remembering that I have previously asked that question :oops:. Senility clearly setting in ever faster ;).

For anyone interested this is the link to that old thread http://www.secretleeds.com/viewtopic.php?t=908 that began in 2008 but in which my query was on June 11 2014 (currently at least on page 3).

Thanks buffaloskinner for your help.

I wonder if any members ever went in the Crystal Palace Pub on Sweet Street.
Did not often go in apart from every Saturday lunch time
Once in in the 60s there was a man playing the piano for charity non stop, the barmaid (big chest) asked my pal and i to sponsor him for something like a shilling an hour.
Got a bloody shock when we called in the following week and the same barmaid (same big chest) brought down a board and said we owed about £5. it seems he had played for days and nights over the weekend and beyond.
We came out sick as as a Fiver was quite an amount back then.
