Around 1979/80 an old shipmate of mine had his stag do in Sheffield and a fair number of the ships company came up for it. During our visit to the Stonehouse I particularly recall one of them asking me "What happens when it rains?" :D

Great pic, my and my hubby used to go there in the early 70s when we were first married. Vic Atkinson was the landlord there with his wife Muriel. Bouncers were Bob Hodder and Dave (cant remember his surname) I remember some great lock-ins on a Saturday night.

I totally loved that courtyard. Somehow, even though you knew that you were indoors, you really felt you were sitting outside on a balmy summer evening with a starry sky overhead. It was never very trendy though, so we didn't go in there that often.

Anyone remember the "Knocker Shop" :-)

Wasn't it 'Knobs and Knockers'?

It was Ruby but we prefered "Knocking Shop". :hihi:

 

I have editred this as it occured to me that some none Sheffielders reading this may not know what a Knocking Shop was.

 

It was a local name for a Brothel.

 

I can remember my mum being disgusted when I arranged ro meet up with a mate at the stonehouse and saying on the phone, I would meet him outside the knockig shop. It took some explaining.

What a coincidence! Only the other day my mum and I were talking about what the area where Orchard Square is used to look like (I think it was redeveloped before I was born). She mentioned the Stonehouse pub as being the place where she and my dad had their first date in the early 70s and I've since been trying to find a photo of the outside of the pub on Picture Sheffield to no avail. At least I now know what the inside was like. :)
