Thanks for the good wishes snowman, my pal Ken Elmy (ex, Firth Mount) who lives on the main street through Garforth pointed out the place he had heard was to be the Weatherspoons and i think it was a Church hall up on the right hand side. as for the one in Crossgates where would that be ?. when i come to Leeds for a few days i stay with my sister there and i would say that they certainly could do with a decent new pub.
All the best Pal Kind Regards Jack Daly.

I know it well Tony, when my Mother was alive she had a lovely flat at the back of the Methodist Church on the same road, one day i went to that doctors surgery for her hearing aid batterys. even though my old Mam was nearly 90 she was corpos mentis enough to obey the instructions on the packet "Do Not Eat. and also Do Not Drive Heavy Machinery"

The Old Surgery was there to cure your headache and i guess W / Spoons will be there to give you it back

According to memories of Leeds Facebook page,
The bulldozers are at work on the former Merry Monk
More housing apparently

Hi I've only just joined this forum; this question may have been asked and answered but I don't have time to read 78 pages!

The question is, does anyone know when the Hofbrauhaus (Bier Keller) which used to be in the Merrion Centre, closed?

Thanks in anticipation.

Tonights YEP,

Demolished pub(The Merry Monk) is taken off the protected asset list.

This is after it was demolished in July. !
