  1. I agree it should be stopped - I fear this year there may be many more bonfire in peoples private gardens thta will keep the firemen busy and of course the usual firework vandalism in the Abbeydale Road area, although thankfully one of the local fireworks shops in the area now has a planning application up to become a Vegan/Veg venue - does anyone know if this has been granted, I hope it has so that less fireworks will be on ale in the area πŸ™‚
  2. I recently had fish and chips from a new chippie called Poseidon, at corner of Hunters Bar roundabout and I must say the chips were very good indeed. I would definitely recommend it. Its a real competitor to TwoSteps chippie also in the area (Sharrowvale).
  3. I've not been yet, but good to see that Dempseys has finally reopened and on a recent visit there it felt totally Covid secure and safe. Also concerning Covid, it was good to see that DINA venue which has often done LGBT events in the past, have received support money to keep going through the pandemic crisis.
  4. Thats why the Barrow Boy will survive as everyone knows it sticks to its opening times.
  5. Tried to link this to my other Post but this inflexible forum software doesn't seem to have the ability - so have to duplicate my post again from under the Teller thread... Fancied a quick tipple last night (Monday) on way to pick up a pizza. The Teller was closed. The Gin Bar was closed. The Two-Thirds Bar was closed. Doubtless had I ventured up that far, the Dead Donkey would have been closed too. Only the Barrow Boy , and I suppose the Broadfield (not sure about the Picture House Social) were open. I'm sorry new venues, but in the run up to Christmas you have to be prepared to be open more hours to get the once a year custom, and alas have to pay staff (ugh I know its a nasty phrase!) to do so !!

  7. Is there a nasty one going around at the moment as Ive got a horrible cough, shivers and pains .. anyone else got it?
  8. This sounds good - it should complement the Gin Bar - will one be allowed to carry the food through to the bar?
  9. Seems the Vault is going to become a tapas bar now to add more variety to the area πŸ™‚ Checked out the new revamped Gin Bar also and it is even better than the first incarnation, great use of space, ore seating, good decor and a wider choice of drinks !
  10. It should do well since , unlike Ecclesall, Nether Edge, Broomhill, London Road, Meersbrook, Heeley, Woodseats, Crookes and Walkley there is no little ale bar in Fulwood 😭
  11. Yes what a shame the Hop Hideout has moved to where it has though I daresay its new location in town is creating a lot greater footfall. .... meanwhile, once the crowds die down, I shall go in and inspect the "all new" revamped Gin Bar . My initial impressions from looking through the windows are: - Change in the bar position and much better use of space - Various snug areas and more places/ledges to put down your drinks - They seem to have increased their draught beer range - I think they have finally realised that not everyone likes Gins and they are appealing to a broader market which makes perfect business sense - They seem to be open longer hours, which they will have to be once th e2 new venues very near them start up - Nice to see some cushiony soft furnishings strewn around - the next review will be when i actually go in in about a week or two once I am flush again πŸ˜‰
  12. The Greek Village , Abbeydale Road is very good - especially if you go in at lunch times for a light meal πŸ™‚
  13. Pleased to see the Gin Bar at corner of Sheldon Road and Abbeydale Road is back open again after a revamp. It looked quite crowded as I walked past last night. Lots of new exciting things happening in this area now, what with Steel City Cakes re-opening soon as a new "two-thirds" bar and there seem to be plans afoot for the old Vault antique centre/HSBC Bank which sems to have applied for a late night music licence - anyone know what the plans are for this ? There is a proper local scene of pubs and restaurants and cafes now developing in this area, who needs town πŸ™‚
  14. Graves art gallery and library is still very much open thank Gawd - interesting Richard Hamilton exhib is on there until almost the end of the month - he was influenced by Marcel Duchamp of the infamous urinal art found object ... there thats my link back to the subject of toilets 😜
