Does anyone remember The Horse Shoe Pub on Bellhouse Road in Shiregreen?

A Hammonds Ales pub at one point

Anyone know the history of this place?

I don't know its history but had a pint in there many times mostly after being in Concord Park for various activities.

It was known ,locally, as "Affertey's" after an earlier landlord. The pub had a large beer garden...where I was taken as a child and, latterly, took my children and a seperate single storey building which could be hired for "occasions". A great pub.... a regular "drinking hole" of mine... when the landlord ( an ex fireman) had a brass, highly polished firemans helmet securely fastened at the end of the bar ...although I can't remember drinking Hammonds there!

The earliest I can find it at the moment is 1896.

As an aside "forkmaking" was an old Shiregreen trade and there were remains of old workshops near the corner of Hadfield House and Bellhouse Road certainly into the early 1980s when I left the area.
