INN, watering hole, boozer or local. There are many names for a pub, although they all have similar functions – to bring communities together and forge memories.

The Daily Echo takes a look back at another seven pubs from the past, each of them likely to spark happy memories from readers.

If the walls of the establishments left standing could talk they would almost certainly have myriad tales to tell of drunken tomfoolery and jolly japes.

How many of these did you visit?
