  1. Thats why the Barrow Boy will survive as everyone knows it sticks to its opening times.
  2. 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 !!

  4. Is there a nasty one going around at the moment as Ive got a horrible cough, shivers and pains .. anyone else got it?
  5. This sounds good - it should complement the Gin Bar - will one be allowed to carry the food through to the bar?
  6. Seems the Vault is going to become a tapas bar now to add more variety to the area 🙂 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 !
  7. 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 😭
  8. 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 😉
  9. The Greek Village , Abbeydale Road is very good - especially if you go in at lunch times for a light meal 🙂
  10. 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 🙂
  11. 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 😜
  12. Its worrying the state of this park after the last music event ... all ripped up and mucked about ... what is the Council going to do about it ? 😮
  13. Me too in same area - hope its not the general communal drains or something !
  14. Has anyone noticed an increase in house flies the last few days due to this weather? I've had the windows open and had quite a few fly in - I live near Abbeydale area which i am told had drain issues - could this be related ? 😮 PS I've blocked the sink so I know they are not flying up from there !
