That takes me back, my boozer (first as a customer then a barman) was further down the road; The Dog and Parrot although my time in the 90s it was the Tut n Shive.   Had many a takeaway from Chilli, although when it was closed after a late night ‘Scotch John’s chippy for such delights as haggis and  chips,  sausage and chips, chips and chips… happy days

Yer gonna have t'explain that one son

The Dog and Parrot was renamed into one of Whitbread’s finest* chains, the Tut and Shive, until renaming back to the Dog in the mid noughties (when they sold all their pubs and focused on shite coffee).

So for the locals it’s been the Dog, the Tut and now the Dog again.

I arranged to meet the lads in the Dog once but they meant the Dog and Parrot and I went to the Barking Dog over the road by mistake and a massive transvestite with a big bushy moustache in a disco ball minidress asked me if I wanted a number on the domino card. I took two and did not win.

Nope, not explained those words yet.

Ha ha! Yes a world apart those two boozers! I went in once and found myself being accosted by Danny la Rue and friends

Ah, you mean in relation to the beer barrel? The two differing holes found on a cask, the tut being the tap aperture (well the removable bung element) and the shive being the uppermost part which is vented (tapped) and often pegged with a spike (hence the Tap and Spile chain of boozers).

It’s been a while so I may be rusty

Am very familiar with tap and spile, had no idea that is what tut and shive alluded to.
