Lots shut, as we know, some change and some buldozed but what they were has gone forever. Many won't be missed much but i reckon every single one will be missed by at least someone. Ill start with a couple of Hudders town center boozers.

The West Riding. Beer shit but THE place in town for all the dandy young things and every subculture going. Fantastic music and the Saturday afternoon discos legendary.

The White Lion. Fab Tetley beer,live bands and took up the hosting of the Saturday discos when the West went pear shape. Coincided with all day opening as well in the late eighties. Even more legendary

Great pubs, great times, always busy, wtf went wrong?

the White Hart is Woodlesford.

Take yer pizza slices in with you as you drank and the kids could run about. Now a load of houses leaving one pub in the village (Pointers) which I choose not to frequent. Had some great nights in the White Hart.

Cobourg was a good pub when I was a student and so was that Irish pub (which for some reason I have forgotten its name!!) just on the other side of the road to the New Roscoe.

Obviously still there but my fave pub of all time -Duck and Drake is losing its identity. Shame really.

I notice Eagle Tavern has re-opened. Will have to give it a try.

I've never missed a pub that's gone. Life moves on. It's just bricks and mortar. There are other pubs.

That's the one, Sheeps.  

Town Hall Tavern, was refurbed and thus ruined maybe 20 years ago.

The Blooming Rose in Hunslet, for many years renowned for being purveyors of the best Tetleys going.  I never had cause to doubt the clami, that's for sure.

The Jubilee opposite the town hall.

Only Bricks and Mortar?

Oh Ms Vermont, as owner and custodian of all these many Van Goghs that have been so cruelly destroyed by that fire you must be absolutely devastated.

Ahh No "shrugs shoulders* they are only Oil and Canvas, there are more paintings

Think you've put all your Soul into that soul Thread mate

Cant remember the Jubilee at all, what circa?

Although only recently demised im still a bit gutted about the Zephyr in Hudders town closing. No otherl reason i gather other than the owner wanted to concentrate on his "New Zephyr" on Wood street which is pig swill and full of wankers

I have happy memories of certain friends and nights in certain pubs but that's it. It's past, done. Next experience please!

Ok then I'll play along. Sunny's in Chapeltown. Edgy, good music, and cans of Red Stripe served from a formica-topped bar. The Music Factory that was at the bottom of Briggate. Best club venue there has ever been in Leeds.

Will second that. It was in the days of still being single and working at Jimmies it would be rude not to go in. And actually a reflection of how the NHS used to be. 4'ish and someone would say 'how about a pint'. 'How about you David' (David was the chief exec!!). 5:30 and the pub would be packed with us all and the Exec.

Every time I come up to Leeds there's another one gone.

Most recently The Chemic Tavern.

Last time I went past the Haddon Hall - where I saw some great bands - it looked semi-derelict.

High Wood had special memories for me as I had my first pint there. It was a shit-hole though.

Garden Gate used to serve great beer and was stunning inside.

If you want to depress yourself further there's a list of them here and lots of old pics on the Secret Leeds Forum.

The Chemic's still going although only just - getting a bit of a reputation as a music venue - folk and open mic stuff.

The Shoulder of Mutton on Potternewton Lane was a happening pub - mid-late 90s, a real mix of people until, alas, a shooting saw it enter a long and sad decline.

The old-style Three Horseshoes in Headingley with a snug, wood panelled walls, old photos of Leeds RL and YCCC - when Tetley''s was still drinkable

It's still got the same name I think but its a student-bar now and falls down on every measure. No atmosphere, grim lagers, messy wooden benches and dirty chairs, tacky decor, cold, wet floors, staff that couldn't care less and daft kids in fancy dress enjoying their first pint

Of all time? Cullens. Brilliant out of the way unpretentious spot, sensible door policy, great mix of people, rarely any bother, cool bar staff and a DJ who played music I really enjoyed.

That whole East Street Run. Big fan of The Fisherman's Hut.

See, the thing is for me, I have happy memories of certain friends and pubs that we frequented at certain times in my life but I wouldn't say I MISS them. I'm too busy living mate, instead of being a Moaning Michael about missing things that once were. But it's that manufactured nostalgia that you LU lot seem to thrive on. Their just chapters in life if you ask me...I know you won't.

Hardly Moaning, I'd say looking back fondly. Can't agree more about the "living" thing and like to think I do my best but one of the things about living, human existence as opposed to the eat- propagate -exist lives of so called lesser creatures is the ability to contextualise. The absorbing of experiences and the world around us, to then examine them and try to rationalise them so we learn and hopefully improve. Like for instance learning not to contemplate putting foreign workers on lists. Plato who himself did a fair bit of living and knew a thing or two said "An unexamined life is not worth living"

For sure its mainly people who provide the memories of ace pubs but not just in the obvious way. It's the builders who designed and built them, the artisans and craftsmen who decorated them, the people who worked in them and the gaffers who ran them. All made a difference and contributed to what made them great and separated them from the ordinary which is what this thread is about.

If I've come over as moaning then that was not my intention. To "miss" something does not imply I am beside myself with grief, I miss our regfests but y'know, I've got other mates . Tell you what, I'll start another thread on new pubs or pubs that are better  now than they were.

Blimey, I feel guilty for remembering Gary Sprake now.

I thought this forum was past slagging off people just because of their allegiance to a football team as if they're obsessives and numpties, obviously not.

Didn't you get the Memo Codge?
*Beckons Codge to come hither*
*Cups side of mouth as he looks around, whispers furtively into his ear*

We've agreed to ignore his LU Stuff

"His LU stuff". This thread is the first time I've said owt about LU since approx. April. Hardly a persistent offender. Anyway, everybody has always ignored my LU stuff. The word on the street is most people on here think I'm a dick. So I expect to be ignored.
