  1. Hi Dave, The Royal hotel is just across the road from the Old Cross Daggers, I will try and get a picture of both of them, the Royal was bulldozed back in the early 1900,s and replaced with the one now, havnt noticed a date on this building but will have a closer look.

  3. From the album: Sheffield,s Forgotten Public Houses postcards

    A Whitbread brewary house, The Royal hotel was a large imposing building situated on the corner of bradfield road and penistone road, across from the Owlerton greyhound stadium. It was a thriving pub when the dogs and the speedway were taking place at the stadium and the sheffield wednesday matches also created a large customer base for the Royal. It was demolished in the 80,s to make way for one of the many road widening developments that took place in sheffield around this time. It is unknown whether the name The Royal Hotel was derived from some local loyalty to the Royal Family in the early part of this century or it was named, more probably after the Royal Dragoon Guards who was stationed at the Hillsborough Barracks.
