Pubs near the Sheffield Wednesday ground that have shut


Recommended Posts

just thinking fair few have shut ,wonderd if you can remember them or any more and your memorys of them.the royal -opposite dogs,remember going in after dogs when sunderland where in semi next day rammed with them,landlord stayed open all night for them,top lads still boozing next morning.think called victoria just before park in row of terraced house was very small like going in some ones front room.

the rose-turned into rough pub towards end,remember bloke on door with alsation on big match days.the masons(capell)-top pub allways good atmosphere.the cambridge-along tailtone road-even in bad old days when poor crowds allways boarded windows up even if playing likes of orient.

the gate-my favourite allways rammed with top lads and used to run top away day coaches.travellers-much same as gate.all are sadly missed ,be good to here other peoples memorys of these or others i may have missed

Pubs around the grounds are one of the commercial casualties of our 15 years + decline. Had we retained Premeirship status, you would of had more pubs opening. As whilst it holds true you will struggle to sustain a pub with footfall every 2 weeks, that might not be the case if the ground was pulling in 35K+ every 2 weeks, and lets face it had we retained our status the ground would have been redveloped and capacity would of been higher meaning greater footfall

All opinion but grounded in reality.

Pubs shut down if because nobody goes can afford to go in em

Government hiking tax on beer is crushing pub industry.

Now that most community pubs have gone they want to hike beer prices in supermarkets.

They won´t be happy until we are all sat at home sipping Horlicks every night. :angry:

Incorrect. Supermarkets selling at less than cost price is the cause. Take away the licence to sell alcohol from supermarkets and watch pubs boom.

There is also a big problem with the greedy breweries charging high prices to pubs for their beer making it virtually impossible to make any money on it and without diversifying into food pubs just die

True, only the freehouses are surviving.
