Which was the best pub that closed in Sheffield and why?

Recommended Posts

I,m surprised no one has mentioned The Adelphi opposite corner to the Lyceum theatre, when big John ran it in the 60s until its demolition to make way for the Crucible!.It was always full any day of the week!.We always met up there before going out anywhere else on a pub crawl or coach trips out of town to different licenced premises,in my opinion the best pub in town at that moment in time!,happy days not forgotten!.

Botham Street/Ruthin Street, the streets are still there but not the pub which was Tennant's / Whitbread's beers.

For me it was The Cannon. I could buy cigarettes, perfume, razors, aftershave and much much more at less than the price in the shops from there!

You could even order something from certain customers and within half an hour they had been to their supplier and got it for you at a huge discount price! Even Wilkinsons could not compete on price.:)

 

I remember it being a druggies pub. Full of delinquents. Was that you?
