Andrew Freeman… My old friend the late Johnny Woodhams used to say if you went to the loo here you went to the Yelton John! There are those who won’t get this I guess!!
Ian Johnson… Sunk a few pints in there
Paul Coleman… I worked in the kitchen of the Yelton for a weekend when I was fifteen, washing up. The chef was an Italian I think. Completely nuts with a habit of throwing big kitchen knives across the room when he was peed off – which was most of the time! One came a bit too close, so I walked. Didn’t even bother collecting my wages.
So the Yelton, (White Rock) still owes me!! Lol.
Peter Houghton… I worked there in the 70s before going to the Royal Victoria
Freddie Smith… My Nan and My Auntie Vi used to go their every Thursday. They would always have their Guinness’, with their treats brought from the drug store(the people behind the bar didn’t know ). In the school holidays I would join them, having coke and crisps.
Rupert Gilham… Takes me back
Mark Gilham… Rupert great days. Not forgetting the Chatsworth run by the lovely Paul and Lesley
Mark Randall… That lady was obviously the magician’s assistant when he performed at the Summer Special
Jane Owen Schaumlöffel… I believe it was named by its original owner, Mr Notley
Peter Houghton… Jane, That’s Right.
Karen Riggs… When did the Yelton become the White Rock Hotel?
Janette Morfey… when the current owners took over, they renamed it.
