  1. It's actually a very suitable location for a Wetherspoons, adjacent to a shopping centre and retail park as well as being in the community hub for south east Sheffield. I expect it to perform well like the ones in Meadowhall, Hillsborough and Woodseats do. Amazed it's taken this long for one to spring up in the Crystal Peaks / Drakehouse area to be honest 👀
  2. I've been waiting for this thread 🍿
  3. Update here, it looked open on Saturday when I went past on the tram. Perhaps it is for sale but staying open under current management until a new owner is found.
  4. We need a suburban rail network like Manchester. I think there is potential for the tram train scheme to utilise the lines from Carbrook to Darnall via Attercliffe and then through Victoria to Neepsend, Wadsley bridge and all the way to Stocksbridge. The other way it can run through Woodhouse, Beighton, Killamarsh... I personally would never have to drive again if that came to fruition. All lines and stations which used to exist.
  5. According to Google maps / Google My Business it has now permanently closed. It's advertised as for sale on here https://www.punchtaverns.com/pub/masons-arms-sheffield-s6-2ue-uk/ Be a shame if it doesn't reopen as a pub. Called in there before the match a few times this season for a game of snooker and a couple of pints.
  6. It is according to the line up poster. There were rumours it was moving to Endcliffe .
  7. https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@53.3188926,-1.3562407,3a,40.7y,351.94h,96.9t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sR16oPdSP_XfbpeMe5Y0qTA!2e0!7i13312!8i6656 Also has one of the plant-boxes underneath it.
  8. Are you looking for a room you can actually hire out for free, or just a pub which is likely to have an empty room which you can all congregate in? If it's the latter, then the upstairs room in the Fat Cat is normally Empty. Good pub with decent beer, great area for drinking too.
  9. I think it mainly stems from older days when service jobs like taxing and waiting / waitressing didn't pay much. I know some taxi drivers who own the vehicles they drive in and they don't always get remunerated mileage costs by the firm they drive for, so I suppose a quid or two on top of the fare is...fair
  10. I'd recommend The Hollows down at Woodhouse Mill. We used them every time we went on holiday for the 14 years we had our two dogs.
  11. A revised route could see the only underground sections being going under St Mary's Gate and then the new stop at Castle Square. The tunnels would be the same sort of length as the one which currently goes under Brookhill roundabout. Would still be costly though so we're unlikely to see it any time soon, for the reasons you've mentioned.
  12. I think an ideal line would run from the south west into the city centre and then head north. From Dore it could follow Abbydale road in its entirety up to London Road, then go underground and follow the route of Eyre Street / Arundel Gate to Castle Square, where new platforms could be created on the same level the hole in the road used to be. The line would re-emerge near the old market, cross the Don and proceed up the Wicker, Spital Hill Hill, through Pitsmoor and to the Northern General. This is obviously a complete dream, and the costs, disruption and logistics would probably mean this route could never really be built
  13. The network was supposed to be expanding down to Dore & Totley via Abbeydale Road to aid transport to the HS2 station at Meadowhall, but now it's going to be in the city centre I think that has bitten the dust. The tram-train link to Rotherham and Parkgate is due to be opening soon i think.
  14. Such a shame, went in there for the first and only time in June and loved it. Fingers crossed it gets a new owner and reopens.
