St Gregory's RC Primary & Middle schools stood directly behind. I believe the old middle school building is now the primary and the old primary is now used for community type stuff.

This was a great pub in the 80`s-90`s, it was packed every night, the landlord/lady Jonny and Magaret were a great couple, many a great night was had there.

Moved into Ash Tree App mid 60's, No 27 in fact. Used to play cricket and football in the large car park where there was a pear tree. The pub's main door used to be a revolving door, only problem was getting the drunks out - they kept going back in. This is a large pub and the bar's were massive. In the early 70's the pub tried a supper extension where they did meals in baskets, a great pianist played there, all i can remember is his first name 'Johnny', he used to pack the place out. I worked behind the bar for a time in the early 70's along with my mother Lily, lager was 9p a pint, bitter was 7p, the landlord at the time was called Bernard, think he had a daughter called Julie.

As someone says Johnny wilson & margaret were great hosts. unfortunately johnny has passed away now as has Bernard prior the previous landlord. I was one of the regular DJ's here in the late 70's early 80's ( Rocky's dico ) along with les holt, eddie sowery, & john moody. sunday lunchtimes were packed to the roof for my golden oldies. The pub holds many memories for me, but dispite having lived almost opposite on stanks lane south for 24 years, never go in these days.

I remember when the pub opened around 1963 and the Brooks family had it. I was friends with their daughter Lesley and we used to play in the pub after closing time on Sundays. I loved it as we played at shops with the choc bars and crisps etc!

This brings back loads of memories. After the landlord Bernard did a landlord called Walter Bradley take it and went from there to the Empress in Bradford? It just rings a bell that's all. People I used to drink with if I can get the names right, Phillip Pratt, Lelsie ripley, Johnny Brogden, the Monks family, Croziers etc. apologies to anyone who i may have forgotten.

Spent many happy days of my youth in the Whinney. My drinking and pool playing mate of the time was John Sanderson from the Eastwoods. I was born in and lived at 243 Stanks Lane South between 1958 - 1976 when I joined the RAF

As a kid I remember the 'off sales' round the back you could get sweets there - paynes poppets! and penny stuff When I got older I remember the Toby Jug Trio - they were 4 of em hahaha! and the Johnny fella who played the organ and sang 50's stuff. Later still I worked behind the bar for a while and my crowning glory - played rugby for em during the 80's in a charity thing between the whinny and the post - and yeaaaah of course we won!!!! despite Fuzz being the ref and cheating cos his daughter was playing for the post!

The Brogdens used to live next door to me at 8 Ash Tree Grove. They moved to Swarcliffe Bank. I used to go in the Whinmoor pub with my dad, Noel. Was it a Whitbread Brewery pub?

Andy Reece Your'e right about the Brogdens living in Ash Tree Grove, Johnny Brogden was married to my sister, June Bickerdike so he was my brother-in-law!! She did move to Swarcliffe Bank after they separated. This pub used to be banging at the weekend, wall to wall with customers. The first time I went in was to watch the 1970 World Cup, I was 16 and bricking it, lol, and I threw up outside!!!

My dad Joe waited on here back in the 60s when pubs had waiters. I remember playing with Lesley the landlords daughter too. My brother John played rugby for the pub I believe. My dad also delivered Penguin pop in the area so was quite well known.
