Whereabouts was it

Not sure the name Swiggys comes to mind but I might be wrong. My memory was that it was somewhere up middlewood road on the left as you were leaving Hillsborough. Once again I could be miles out

I know it wasn't a pub but anyone remember the Chuck Ranch on Holme Lane. Burger place a bit like Uncle Sam's. Spent many a Friday night in there after a sesh in Hillsborough or Stannington.

Yep ....... Swiggys was one of the many “wine bars” that appeared in the 80’s which took advantage of the more relaxed licensing hours for such establishments, eg if a communal free chilli or curry was available on the bar then it could stay open every day till 1am and all day Sunday.

Very often it was empty at 10:30pm and packed by 11pm ........ The clientele was interesting..... happy days!

No mate, where the closed down Chinese restaurant now stands opposite the library.

Remember being in there one Sunday night when 2 groups were vying for the right to control the drug distribution in the area when a couple of lads burst in and fired a sawn off into the air bringing part of the ceiling down ...... was open again 2 days later!

I guess, due to location, most of these pubs and bars were deemed as “Wednesday pubs” so what about pubs in town? When I first moved to Sheffield, certain pubs in town were considered Wednesday or United pubs Don’t recall any of the Wednesday ones, but there were a couple of United ones in Pond St, that were to be avoided

There used to be 9 bars on Wicker. All Wednesday, the Big Gun being a real stronghold.

Only 1 of the 9 left now,

The Claymore at the bottom of Roxy’s ramp was a proper Wednesday pub ........ The Sunday football team, all Wednesdayite’s, was called “Snakebites” as it was the only pub in town that would sell that particular mix ....... all the others declared it “loopy juice”!

Oh yeah, dangerous Can remember it being Wednesday pub, aside from one time when we played Man Utd, when the Donny Reds got there first
