George and Rose Scott were in charge of The Retreat in the late 1980s/early 1990s. Here is Rose behind the front bar. Thank you to Bob Brodie for the photo.
Things to notice here:
- There were only four beer engines. Currently, there are six plus four taps for kegs (Guinness, Pravha, etc.).
- There was a mild on sale (one of the four beer engines).
- It looks like there was a more limited selection of snacks.
- Spirit sales were a lot less important than Christmas.
Do you have any anecdotes or memories of Rose (or George)? If you do, please send them to us.
Let us know if you can identify the gentleman at the end of the bar.
Also, please do send us any snaps you have of the interior of The Retreat. We love to get them and share them on the site.
