Walkley Cottage 2019

Recommended Posts

I see the Walkley Cottage is closed for refurbishment after a recent change of ownership.  Has anyone any information on the plans?

Any idea how long it's closed for? Hope they're not doing anything too radical - I quite liked its slightly dated charm!

I used to love the Walkley cottage.

 

then it closed for refurbishment.

 

when it reopened it was open plan, and there wasn't a seat in the house that didn't have direct sight of a least 5 massive screens showing football, more football, continuous football, talking about football, and even more football.

 

 

they've probably closed it while they fit some more/bigger screens.

When did it close? It was open at the weekend?

 

In fact - theres's an event there tonight advertised an hour ago by the Walkley Festival - are you sure it's closed?

According to their Facebook page they have reopened - only closed for a couple of days.

It’s a while since I’d been in so not sure to be honest.

 

i believe some work is being done in the beer garden area but was sat at front so didn’t see.

Wonder who that leaves as Sheffield's longest serving licensee?

 

Pretty sure it was Wardy, and before that Les May at the Hallamshire on Commonside.
