The hunt for the mysterious Garden Gate Inn pub...
Here is a real Sheffield History teaser for you.

In this photo is the Old Harrow pub which was at number 34 Harvest Lane, and we're looking towards Bridgehouses and the junction with Mowbray Street.

That's not what we're here for however.

Instead look at the building left of centre with the writing 'Garden Gate Inn' on the end gable. 

Question here is was there actually a Garden Gate Inn pub in Sheffield?

I've been told there's no record of it at all?
