Stonehouse Pub memories

Recommended Posts

It was called the Museum when I became old enough to drink there in 1966 (and a bit earlier....;)). The 1973 Kelly's Directory lists "Museum P.H." at 25 Orchard Street.

It seems it's had several changes of name over the years :)

 

Museum, City Centre, Sheffield

Previously called the Hogshead, fully refurbished in February 2005 and re-named the Museum.

It was the Museum, And For time there you could get in through the back door of the Stonehouse. So it was Stonehouse, Museum, The Pig then we would decide if iwe were going onto the Red lion then Golden Ball or over to the Brown Bear and down to the Mulberry route that night.

 

Oh Lorri, the whole idea of the suit was that we wouldn't have to drink ginger ale .....haha

Remember Big Lou on the door? He played for our team, Sharrow Sports, next thing I see him leading out Nigel Benn for the Eubank fight. Right nice bloke for a bouncer.

What I would give for the freshly made Steak Pie, Chips, Peas and Gravy now! I can still remember the large baking trays coming to the counter from the kitchen and the portions having to be cut up, ... Delicious! Why can't simple pub food be as good now? What a stupid thing to do .... changing the interior of the 60's/70's Stonehouse with the Courtyard etc, for something Pathetic!!

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.
