The Doctor's Orders Pub, Glossop Road

Recommended Posts

I called in on Saturday night. Yes I agree it's pretty grim now. It seems slightly worse each time I go in.

 

I'm ever hopeful it will become a decent pub because that is my memory of it in the Tetley/West End days. It's a nice big old building with loads of space inside and a big outdoor area at the front, plus the location is perfect. The current management don't look to me like the people who will oversee its resurrection.

This pub has always been a strange place to me. Never felt like a locals type pub, not a town pub, and certainly not a food pub. So all it had left was students really, and they don't seem to want to use it either, because they'd rather frequent the much better Francis Newton and in spring/summer the big outdoor area up there. I just can't see a market for it, and that's probably why nobody has taken it on.

Possibly true, the only time I ever went in was before gigs at the Octagon.

When the lads from little critters had it the beer and food were good and it was a busy place.

 

I saw one of the lads who worked there at the time recently and he said it was crazy rent quote from the pubco that led to them coming out - it was doing well before that.

Sadly that's no surprise, they'd rather see a place boarded up than take a lesser cut.
