Hi All. Been up to Parkhill flats today to photo the two closed pubs which are The Link which has still got its sign up showing chain links on both sides nice sign and the Parkway Tavern which a while back I got permission to photo the inside well what was left inside anyway. Does any have any tales about them did you go in what were customers like been told that Parkway was a tough pub and does anyone have any photos of the inside and outside the pubs when in use and would like to hear anything about the other two pubs Scottish Queen and the Earl George and any photos of them. Noticed that the New Inn has been boarded up and sold in that area. Thanks

Used to go in the Link prior to the tanner rush in the community centre next door. I think it was Wednesday nights.

I think you are thinking of the Earl George which was on the Pavement shopping area, The Link was further up.

Its a real shame that The Link pub sign not been put in a muesum.There is very few pubs called Link and there signs are of golf links unlike the one at Parkhill which show chain links a link to Sheffields steelworks and rare nodoubt end up in a landfill site makes a great photo.

Yes I think you're right about where it was. You'll have to cut me a bit of slack as I'm going back to 1966. It was definitely the Link I used to go in though.

Hello Alanp when Im in the Castle Market area I will ask your relative about the Link. I managed to photo the inside of the Link pub though the steel sheeting not to bad the bars are still there and the seating only basic type of pub but recorded never the less. The Parkway Tavern inside looks like a war zone shame spent some happy times in there.

I know I have started a thread a few days back about Parkhill pubs. Out of the four in the flats complex the Earl George pub is the least talk about and photoed of the four which were the Link, Parkway Tavern, Scottish Queen and the one Im on about the Earl George does anyone have any information on it like past landlords what was the pub like that sort of thing I have found if ture it seemed to be a music venue at one point. Thanks

To the best of my knowledge there were only two PH in the triangle,
Talbot Inn, 19/21 Talbot Road.
Oddfellow's Inn, 200 Duke Street.
There was a Beer Off on the corner of Stafford Street (http://www.picturesheffield.com/frontend.php?action=zoom&keywords=Ref_No_increment;MATCHES;%28^|%20+%29s198 63%28$|%20+%29&continueUrl=ZnJvbnRlbmQucGhwPyZrZXl3b3Jkcz1hbGwlM0 JNQVRDSEVTJTNCJTI4JTVFJTdDKyUyQiUyOVRhbGJvdF9TdHJl ZXQlMjglMjQlN0MrJTJCJTI5JmFjdGlvbj1zZWFyY2gmcGFnZT 0x).

In the 1960/70 i use to go in the Link pub, i liked the Scottish Queen pub aswell.

Do you think they'll open all the pubs again when all the work is finished.

I remember Joe in the Earl George, I also remember him being in the Red Lion on Duke Street, I do not think he was there for long, could have been doing a stand in or relieving at the time.
Don't remember what year/s it was ?

The Parkway was featured on Britains hardest pubs on ITV 3 a few years back, it may be on youtube.

I used them all in the 80's and 90's. Parkway was rough but always felt safe there.

I think it was back in the mid eighties that a lady commited suicide by jumping from one of the higher levels of the flats onto the roof of the link.
Very sad.
