The pub scene in Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch has changed beyond recognition in the past few decades.

With the popularity of wine bars, cocktail lounges and gastro-pubs rocketing, the joy of an old fashioned pub can seem more difficult to find.

We asked you last week which pubs you miss the most near to where you live.

And we received nearly 200 comments from you, listing places from The Studland Dene at Alum Chine to The Criterion in Bournemouth.

We've delved into our archives as well to try and find as many pictures as possible for you. So take a walk down memory lane and take a look.

Bournemouth Echo:

Joanne Jenkinson said on Facebook: "Miss the Jolly Miller. The Swan (flying boat) used to be packed out and spent many a night in the Beehive. Mariner holds memories for under 18 night and of course the Viking, if you made it down the stairs upright it was a bonus!"

Sue Sinkinson said: "Lots of pubs from the Saturday night pub crawl in Bournemouth but especially the Criterion and Palace Vaults."

And Jemma Slade said: "I remember going to the New Inn (family pub) in Christchurch with my mum that’s now gone, knocked down and turned to flats. Also the Fairmile pub is now a Co-op."

Other people said The Retreat in Parkstone, Gander on the Green, The Woodman in Branksome, The Ansty Arms, The Strouden Park hotel (which was only ever a pub to some people) and The Oakdale.
