    Carbrook Hall at Attercliffe, Sheffield

    I loved this pub when I visited a couple of years ago. It was amazing inside, so historical and it had a real atmosphere. The fixtures and fittings were so intricate and the quality was incredible. I didnt see any Ghosts but as I said earlier it did have an atmosphere. I recently walked past it and it looked like it was for sale! Can anyone confirm this?

    Subway bacon buty

    Went to have a Subway bacon butty Friday and I was shocked to find only one piece of bacon on it!! There was more ketchup than sauce!! £2.20 for bread and a piece of bacon with ketchup, oh a drink as well!! One piece of bacon? What do you think? I will be going elsewhere from now on!!

    Shock Horror I am not on Facebook

    I agree with all the comments made on here about Facebook. There are lots of us out there who all feel the same about this but the media would rather the world believe we are all addicted to Social media. Stick together guys- lets say NO, we are not all sheep and follow what we are told. we follow our own beliefs not what the Media wants us to believe!!

    The last day ever of Sheffield Castle Market

    Loved watching this, brought back some wonderful memories of the old Castle market. Thanks for sharing. I think this market as old and with its need of TLC had far more atmosphere than the new market on the Moor. What do you think? Castle Market or the Moor Market? Here is a video showing the Moor market when it opened, it is not this busy now and the atmosphere is seriously lacking. Missing the Castle market!!
