The Decline In Pubs On London Road

Recommended Posts

The area has changed over the years and become much more diverse and the fact you can eat your way around the world on London Road is a big selling point I think!


As for pubs and bars, well, it depends what you are looking for really. If you want to do a run down London Road and Abbeydale Road there are plenty to go at, although many are now more of the sit down and have conversation over a nice drink rather than standing up with a pint of lager or session bitter engaging in raucous banter.


The run includes:

Beer Engine




(Barrel being converted into a cocktail bar / fast food joint)

(Crown looking for a new tenant, again)




Dead Donkey


Glass Frog

Abbeydale Tap & Snap

Over the Yardarm

Picture House Social

Barrow Boy

Two Thirds Beer Co


Gin Bar





All great traditional pub names.

(Ok there are a few traditional pub names in there, other than that)


🌎Worlds gone daft :huh:.


For me I prefer remembering London Rd as it was 8)

In the early 1990's a colleague of mine was 'floored' and lost his false teeth after skating on a discarded fishcake on the steps of the Hermitage PH at the end of London Road.  He was henceforth known as 'Fishcake'.  🤣
