Fred Marsh… what was the pub next door called

John Gale… Before the Tubman,,, The Cambridge I think

Reid McDuffie… I went there every weekend in the early 80s. Forget it’s name back then

Fred Marsh… yes The Cambridge well done i shall sleep tonight

Jo Avery… Yes the Cambridge my Aunt and Uncle ran it for quite a few years. Jim and Di Davidson.

Eugene Hughes… Jo, I used to adore the fish pies Di made. Jim went on to run The Railway pub. Then was curator at Rye Museum I believe.

Jo Avery… Yes she was one amazing cook!

Mike Mitchell… I’m sure I had cricket coaching in the nets at the Priory Ground with Len Crease…I also passed by the Dripping Well on my stag night and had several pints of bitter poured down my trousers. Thank you for that Allen Blackford.

Eugene Hughes… How odd. I was just about to post, when I read this. I had cricket training with Len Creese at the Priory Meadow. I never knew that he was the landlord at the DW.

James Bacon… How much for?

Alan Esdaile… £5. current bid.

James Westlake… I used to use the Garage at the top of the hill to fill up our works van.

Tony Davis… Len Crease was groundsman at the Central Cricket Ground and sold me my first Gray Nicholls cricket bat

Eugene Hughes… Gray Nicholls are still there and trading in Robertsbridge. I remember seeing Ted Dexter playing for Sussex at the PM. It was against Kent. He scored 203 not out. He signed and gave my dad his bat when he came back into the pavilion. I have it to this day.

James Westlake… Definitely old enough

Graham Sherrington… cor Blimey memories

Jacquie Hinves…Spent most evenings on there as a student nurse45 years ago. It was the first pub Kevin Hoad and I went the day I started at the old RESH!

Gaynor Lewry… And the pump house we went there as well
