SOME go to catch up with friends while others may visit for a quiet pint.

The Daily Echo takes a look back at another seven pubs lost in the mists of time and other indulgences.

There was a time when watering holes were plentiful and could be found just a stones throw from any Southampton home.

Over the years we've seen them slowly vanish, but these pictures will hopefully keep the the memories of them fresh.
