    Another Pub Closed

    Shame had some good nights in there when Harry and Sheila Ashall had it,then later Mick Potter.It'll prob get turned into another doss house for English people who despite living here all their lives have fallen on hard times and get forced out their homes because of bedroom tax etc.It is already halfway there,i rewired some of the upstairs years ago,it has the basis for an HMO already in place.
