The Glass Slipper

Recommended Posts

Can anybody recall a pub, apparently on Cemetery road Sheffield

 

Called the " The Glass Slipper"

 

This wasn't the actual name of the public house but what everyone called it

 

I'm told it had a female landlord + reputation for serving "after hours" + was popular with "the boys in blue" for a pint after their late shift ended (allegedly)!

 

If so what was the pubs proper name + whereabouts on Cemetery Rd was it ?

 

Thanks! (on behalf of 2 elderly gentlemen "going mad" trying to remember it !)

Hello..Thanks for that....I take it the silver slipper was just what the locals called it as I can't find it listed on the Sheffield history pub name pages.Thanks..

The Sunderland Social Club ' was on the corner of Cemetery Road and Sunderland Street [ about halfway up Cemetery Road ]. The Vine was very near to it on another corner. The S.S. was jokingly called the ' Silver Slipper ' by its varied clientele.

No idea, unless its just the initials (SS) or some sort of reference to the Famous casino that used to be in Vegas?
