Ah yes it is thriving !!.. and you can also add the Picture House Social and the Speakeasy Bar, both housed in the old Abbeydale Cinema building¬†ūüôā¬†

 

PS I thought that I saw the Old Crown Inn, London Road open again the other day when passing on the bus?

Going back to the 70’s Ecclesall Road was pub free between the Nursery Tavern and the Banner Cross Hotel.

Shude Hill, under the Commercial St bridge. The doorway is still there. 

 

I read a line in a recent "Beer Matters" booklet, which is produced monthly by the local Campaign for Real Ale group, that somebody was looking to reopen it as a rock bar. Not sure that it's a good idea, maybe when Rebels was open back in the day, but can't see anyone trailing down there, no other similar places around it.

 The Lescar and Porter Cottage on the way.

 Being more interested in a drink than geography and already been to the Devonshire, Pomona, Prince(? ) before the Nursery, passing  the Lescar/ Porter was a 'need' easily satiated by a few yards. Plus two chip shops.
