Pubs on the Wicker. Friday night pub crawls

Recommended Posts

Never been to any of the pubs down that way, being relatively new to Sheffield. Are there any worth visiting these days?

There's only the Big Gun left on the Wicker - 'rough and ready'. Round the corner is the Harlequin (formerly the Manchester) which is nice, and you can continue down that way to the 'Beer Trail' - a whole littering of real ale places, but if you go on the Wicker, or further north from there, as you don't tknow the area too well, I wouldn't.

 

That said, at the moment, most if not all are shut due to flood damage.

Pubs on the Wicker. Friday night pub crawls.

 

With mates, or sometimes solo I would trawl through the pubs on the Wicker on some Friday and Saturday neets, in the early to mid 70's. I remember;

 

Brown Cow - Stones

Bull and Oak - Whitbread

Station Hotel - Tetley

Viaduct - Tetley

New White Lion - Tetley

(and a) Big Gun - Stones to shoot 'em with.

 

Have also been in other pubs in the general area:-

 

Harlequin - Wards - Johnson Street

Lion Hotel (Black Lion) - Tetley - Nursery Street

Hare and Hounds - Stones? - Nursery Street

Manchester Hotel - Wards - Nursery Street

Brown Cow - Wards - Mowbray Street

Bull and Mouth - Tetley - Waingate.

 

Didn't know about the Planters Bar at the Royal Victoria Hotel. If I would have known I would have done that one too! Well done big gun boy, top man. P.S. Which beer did they do?
