Wapentake

The watering hole of choice for any classic rock fan, you had to queue to get ins any time after 7.30 during the weekend. Your webmaster was there virtually every night of the week for many years. Manageress Olga Marshall looked after her regulars like a mother and the bouncers were a decent bunch. Regular table football contests were held there. Although not a weekly or monthly venue, bands did play the Wapentake from time to time, including local legends Haze and even rock monsters Def Leppard, as can be seen in the video below.
