Old Sheffield pubs from the past gone for ever

Recommended Posts

For me, the locals (not town pubs) are...

 

The Magnet (Southey Green)

Five Arches (5 Arches?) Herries Road

Parsons Cross Hotel. Not a regular but they had a special sticky carpet that helped when beer goggles kicked in! 😄

Do remember the landlady of the Salutation, closing the doors after time and saying help yourself to more beer and to leave the money owed in a tatty cardboard box ...

Not quite Broughton Lane, it was on the corner of Coleridge Road.

Interesting to view that photo, seem to remember so many of those buildings around the Salutation having already been demolished when we drank there.

Remember it well 👍did you know it was named after a racehorse? Not a lot of people know that 😄

My wife was born and lived near Sutcliffes shop Ruthin St less than 100 yds away. Nobody ever said where the name came from .

  A forum contributor ( Lazarus ) research this and found no evidence that this was so. However he say a pub called Why Not on Clun St  (near Gower St )was named after 1894 National Grand winner. Maybe the story got transferred.

Yes, I've heard the 'Why Not' pub story before, the pub was actually on the corner of Earsham Street and Clun Street and I think it was demolished around the 1920s.
