Used to drink a lot (often not volume....well both really) in the Cuthbert Bank. 
 

We were chatting away one Saturday lunchtime with some Chelsea fans. They’d been good fun and friendly. Around 2.15, all finishing our final pints, one of them said “right, which one of you wants a fight?”.

 

He looked and sounded like a bigger version of Eric Bristow, who told us “I’m gonna dent your ‘ead”.

 

We declined his kind offer.

In the eighties pubs closing never even entered my mind . I thought they'd been there and would be there forever . In the latter end of the eighties the pubs I used to go into were all being refurbished they were doing so well . Then not much more than a decade later they were disappearing at a rate of knots for flats , supermarkets , old age homes . Industry gone , even if it was still there you would get the sack for having a pint at dinner . I miss the eighties , not least that I was a teenager lol

The monopolies commission broke all the breweries up and the manged houses were then a thing of the past. The bigger and better attended pubs would subsidise the ones doing not so well. This was the downfall of the pub trade and then along came Enterprise Inns and pillaged further what was once a good trade and living.

 

The landlord's of managed houses used to be on a great number and more often than not ran great establishments

For older readers - The Victoria pub on Penistone Road 

Anyone know where this was?

 

It was where Lily's is now. 

 

Between Swan Norton and Hillsborough Park.

 

Virtually across from Bassetts.
