I wondered how long it would take for this to happen when it closed. I lost my bet as it was later rather than sooner. Thanks for sharing them Xan wink

I know the feeling, I bet it would burn as well, but I thought it would have been sooner, maybe it was left this long so it didn't look even more suspicious than it already does smile

I remember I was walking through the car park of the Abby going home from school and got half a house brick in my head for nothing at all by the scum gang that used to hang around there around '95.
I still thought it was a great bar though,if your face fit in that is.

I watched Frank Bruno get spanked by Mike Tyson in there sometime in 1996 at about 4am on a Saturday night / Sunday morning. Not a bad Pub back in the day. A few pubs in the area like the King's have spent a bit of cash and have mopped up the kind of discretionary trade that the Abbey used to heavily rely on. That's why it died on its arse. Also a load of the alkies went up to the Toll Bar in the Ferry when the Wetherspoon's opened.
