Brambles Sports Bar (Butlers) (Ginos) (Central) John Smith's, Webster's / 1664, Foster's Rather pleasant totally plastic decor in this long narrow one roomed bar, which has a small dance floor at the back. The flat TVs above the bar are impressive. It has a late licence and everyone out in Kirkby seems to come here when the pubs close.   DiscoDay4 Day5   KaraokeDay3   Live musicDay6

Johnny Todd Worthington / Carling A plain tidy council estate boozer, quiet when I visited on a Saturday afternoon. The theme tune to TV's Z-Cars, some of which was filmed in Kirkby, was an arrangement of an old sea shanty called Johnny Todd.
