Old Warrington Pub

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know the name of the now demolished small pub that used to be on the left hand side of Knutsford Road just over Black Bear Bridge, I can vaguely remember it being very small, maybe two rooms only.

There was an even smaller "pub", in a terraced house opposite Tetley's Brwery, Winwick Rd; but it only had an occassional licence. :confused:

Many thanks to all who replied, I've lived in Latchford for fifty years and passed this pub on so many occasions but for the life of me I couldn't remember its name, you've saved my sanity!

Since the demise of the Brook, Latchford has since lost The Railway,Blackbear,Latchford Labour Club,St Augustines,Kingsway Hotel & "gained" The Bridge Bar,Society is changing...and NOT for the better.

It seems to me that the places closing are the type that older customers frequent and as the years have evolved older people are less and less inclined to walk the streets at night prefering to stay in the security of their own homes with some tins from the supermarket and the television.

I used to work evenings in The Lion in Bridge Street when Bill Medland was landlord.

 

(Not to mention at Air Ministry, Underclyffe House,London Road,Appleton in the early 60's. Then moved to the Pier head, then went to Cappers at Woolston. But destiny called and I went off to London for 5 years, then Bath for 30, now living in Hillsborough.)

 

I saw what they had done to it in 2006, I was so shocked. I was glad to scuttle back to Sheffield.

the Brook was our local as 16 year olds while at the Grammar school back in the 70's. One of the few pubs we were sure of being served in. I remember having to open the window in the room with the pool table to be able the end of the cue to stick out of the window whilst making some shots. Landlord whose name I forget was a nice guy, used to have a Porche and would often stop to give me a ride if be happened to see me at the bus stop. Good times.
