  1. I understand the former pub under the 'Black Swan' is due to reopen at some point this year as a sports bar. Does anyone know if it opened when the Black Swan was built in the 60s or only opened in 1976 when I believe it became the Sam Smith's 'Old Brewery Tap'...if so what was the downstairs used for before this?

    The Stonehouse in Sheffield city centre

    I'm trying to find out about the history of the Stone House. I understand the 'themed' Stone House opened in 1971 with the earlier pub being around on the same site before that. Now this is the bit I'm not sure about- was the old pub heavily remodelled to incorporate/ extend the new pub with the famous cobble street scene etc or completely demolished and rebuilt? I know further changes came when Orchard Sq was built but I'm struggling to find any info about the earlier Stone House and what happened when the new themed one was opened. Can anyone help?
  3. Hi- Could I use your picture of the Old Bowling Green tiling in my upcoming book on Sheffield pubs?

    The Crown, Carlisle Road

    Hi Wednesday1991 were your mum and dads surname Davis? I have Kenneth Davis at the Lord Nelson from 1966. Did they move anywhere else after? Also if you have any other info or any pictures of their time running the Crown & Lord Nelson id love to see them. Pm me or email sheffieldpubs@outlook.com . I assume they moved from the Crown when it shut down?

    The George & Dragon (Gaffey's) Broad Lane

    Cheers Mike. I'm making the assumption that the George & Dragon shut when the Strad opened as the council limited the number of licences it issued. It wasn't uncommon for more than 1 licence (usually a beer house licence to have to be given up when new premises were built) to have to given up so thats why I think the George & Dragon would have shut when the Strad opened. The Talbot, Highfield was also surrendered at the time and upon checking my records the first landlord at The Strad was William Pennington. It would be great if you do come across a picture as I have very little information on the George & Dragon... Thanks Jamie

    The George & Dragon (Gaffey's) Broad Lane

    Hi Mike, I am working on a book on Sheffield pubs and I don't have much info on this place other than the name of your relative Eileen Keaveny as the licence. I understand the licence was surrendered to build the new pub The Strad at the Stradbroke estate....which opened in Nov 1953. Do you have any pictures of Eileen from her time as landlady.

    I know a bit about this place. I believe the external wall/ entrance to the pub is still standing...
