Porter Brook - I never saw it.

Recommended Posts

I have just found out that there is a public house on Ecclesall Road called The Porter Brook. I couldn't place this at all and I knew Ecclesall Road very well for a large part of my life. How long has it been there and what was this building before? It can't have been there and I just never saw it surely. :loopy:

Hi melv,

 

Do you have any idea when that happened? It must have been during the last 20 years, do you think?

I think in the last 15yrs, grannypat. I'm not sure about that,though.

I think I first went in round the time of the last big solar eclipse - so 1999ish at latest give or take a year.

Just asking, but this is not to be confused with the Porter Cottage on Sharrow Vale Rd is it. Sorry but years since I was in that area.

No, they are two different pubs.

Sure it’s been a pub longer than that?

I was trying to think when I first went there, and it was definitely longer than 15 years ago.

 

I cheated (don't like doing that) but a website, says opened in the 1990s as Hogshead. I'd say later than 95 though (from a single memory)

Thank you all for your help and your memories. I left in 1995 and I feel sure that it must have been after that that the Porter Brook came into being. You've all helped me understand what happened.
