Came home in a taxi last Friday from hospital, and we came through bottom of cliffe, and then up Worksop Road to Darnall. Got sight of the Greyhound, Britannia, Farrahs (all shut), Old Cocked Hat (open again), Ball (shut years), Sportsman, Albert (still open but not at that time). The Industry, Meadow, Duke of York, Halfway House (flattened), Rose & Crown all gone, but not forgotten.

 

The Terminus is still open I think (Old Bradley Well), Wellington, Darnall and that area was a top night now sadly no more, what a waste.

Had some good nights in the Halfway in the 80's.

This website about the lost pubs of Sheffield might be of interest.

 

 

 

Interesting but I don't understand how this list was compiled. The earliest closure is dated 1912 yet I could name a few demolished pubs that I frequented in the sixties that aren't listed.

 

 

Two more pubs which my relatives had ( Demolished in 60s and 70s and NOT included in this list )............. The Junction Inn, Brightside Lane.

and The Douglas Inn, Parkwood Springs.

The Allbert (Hotel)

It was opposite the city hall.

 

The Sheaf

Bridge pub down Heely bottom is some printing company's headquarters now by the looks of it..that was good pub in the day spent many happy nights in there in the past quaffing the the Wards best I even got done for drinking under age in there many moons ago,there used to be a jukebox in the back room that if you gave it a kick it would play a freebie,trouble is it was a bit random what it would play and it would play some boring old record till someone gave it another good kicking don't think there would have been much money in it at the end of the week when the landlord came to empty it ..:hihi:
