The Fellmonger at Seacroft has been closed for a while, however according to the YEP it has been sold for redevelopment as housing. So, that is the end of another pub.

Oh no, the poor old Felly. I used to go there for a pasty when I went to Foxwood, and play football right outside it across North Parkway when I was a kid.

Passed the Mulberry on Hunslet Road today, to see men working on it. When I asked what was happening, I was told it was to reopen .....as a pub.

I await developements with interest.

Not a pub, as such but the former Rio’s nightclub, or basement to Heaven and Hell and before that it was known as Ricky’s, at the Merrion Centre is due to be re-opened as a bar called 'The Pit'(!)

Handy for the Arena crowds ...

Looks to be the long-neglected Grand Arcade isn't it?

In a previous life, The Globe Inn, Sackville Street-Meanwood Road.

The large filled in cellar door opening gives a good clue, otherwise no other evidence showing.

This is not concerning a Leeds pub, but I am sure that many on the forum will agree that the miss-type in the following planning application (page 18 of http://documents.reading.gov.uk/AnitePublicDocs/00284240.pdf ) to turn a historic pub into a "more commercial" profit-making building is probably amazingly accurate:


The Granby is vacant, precisely because it was unsuccessful financially and it was
not possible to finds a public house operator prepared to buy the property and ruin it
as a public house, despite extensive marketing for a prolonged period. Thus the
applicants are uncertain that it was viable as a public house;
