Stonehouse Pub memories

Recommended Posts

I remember going in there rather inebriated one night, and looking up to the roof and I'm sure them stars on the roof were moving, did anyone else have that experience in there?:cool:

I remember going down town with some friends from work one of whom was about six feet tall and rather large. This would have been late seventies/early eighties. As we were walking past Stonehouse a young lad jumped down from steps in attempt to scare us, my friend just looked at him and said 'your worst nightmare has just come true'. At which point he fled back into the pub.:hihi::hihi::hihi:

I remember a Dutch guy ran the place in I think the mid 70's.If my memory serves me right his name was Bill Hoffman.Don't think he ran it for long before leaving to take over The Sportsman at Lodge Moor,

What a coincidence! The other day my mother and I were talking about what the area is Orchard Square used to look .... He mentioned the Stonehouse pub as the place where she and my father had his first appointment in the 70's and since then I tried to find a photo outside the bar in the image of Sheffield vain....

You mean the one sitting down talking to my wife, who's standing? She has climbed walls trying to remember who you are, she's called Anne and worked for a firm called Hoggett Bowers, who's office was in Bank House on Queen Street.

If I remember there ussed to be a nasty step when coming out of the the lounge side past the toilets towards the courtyard. I made the fatal mistake of laughing at my girlfriend who tripped over it whilst holding a tomato juice and wearing a white cheesecloth top. She didn't see my view of a cheese and tomato top.

Hi, just read your comment on here, muriel is my mother inlaw Im married to her son Paul. Muriel passed away five years ago.

 

Hello, I`ve only just seen your comment about Vic and Muriel. I think I remember Paul. Did he sometimes work behind the bar? Vic and Muriel were a great landlord and landlady. I knew Vic had died, bur I`m so sorry about Muriel. She was a lovely lady who used to look out for us young girlies in the pub
