  1. The bridge had a tap room at the front was pretty basic but the "best side" at the rear was really well decorated as I believe it was flooded once and done out with the insurance money. it was like walking into a different pub when you went into the back.
  2. I remember this pub from watching my dad play inSaturday / Sunday league games on the playing fields behind it in 80s / 90s my Nan and grandad lived round the corner and we'd watch me dad then go round and see them or occasionally they would walk on and come in the pub for a drink after he'd finished playing. The views from the bar were great and I loved sitting looking out the window. Wished I'd called in when I was older but never did.
  3. It's a real shame there's not a pub open on this site given how long one has been sited there. did the barleycoen have a similar layout to henrys or was it completely changed if anyone can remember?
  4. I think it would have been on the adjacent corner of the same building - used to be the Nelson and is now the rocking chair? I believe it may have been called something befor the nelson also. You enter at ground level and can go up or down to two different bars. i believe the upstairs bar is used mainly with downstairs for gigs etc.
  5. I thought that was the jolly buffer pub? was the cinema demolished or does it still exist under a different guise?
  6. These are superb. what is the building on the left hand side at the bottom of ecclesall road - it looks like it's where the Waitrose car park is now?
  7. Loved the fletchers van - never got tired of running out when it came and can still remember the smell. vanilla slice and and an elephants foot. Brilliant
  8. Kikis was in charter square and I believe is still a nightclub or was until recently. it was on the corner on the opposite side of the roundabout to Debenhams. the same row of units has had a few bars on it over the years none of which have done great really, the matrix was one, Mercedes which was a strip club and a sport based strip bar most recently.
  9. It was on the corner where Halfords was in fitzalan square.
  10. What a blast from the past! I remember that graffiti....remember my dad laughing at how the united fans had tried to change the o to a b and then given up!
  11. My grandad asked me to look this pub up once "ont interweb"...., his dad drank in there and was the first place he ever had a pint. said if he could bring one pub back it would be that one. Windows looking out over town and sone real characters in there.
  12. I think that's pye bank flats being built in the background so would imagine late 50s /early 60's.
  13. Hi - is it reopening as a pub/bar? Are there any pics of what it was like before they stripped it out?
