The Gloster Arms - a Memory of Haverfordwest.
I was largely brought up in Mariner's Square. Directly opposite the Mariner's Hotel (the building with the portico) was a pub called the Gloster Arms. At the time this picture was taken it was run by my great grandmother and later by her daughter, my grandmother. My father and his brother lived there until they both married in the 1950's. My sisters and I played on the square outside of the pub. The pub has sadly gone now but the Square itself is largely unchanged.
I remember Christmases at the Gloster. Our bedroom was above the main bar. too excited to sleep, we would listen to the men in the bar below singing Carols before leaving the pub and wind their way up Tower Hill for Midnight Mass at St. Mary's Church (top right of the picture).
