I notice that The Archers Pub in Bromborough is up for Sale, at 1,440,000 the price seems a bit steep!

So many pubs disappearing now which is a shame, although the smoking ban and cheap supermarket booze didn't help I expect frown

There will be investors out there.Who will buy it and turn them into 1 bedroomed flats or apartments.If its a quick Sale the Pub will sell for a bit lower than the actual asking price.

Pubs are closing too because our lifestyles have changed, how many of us regularly goes to the Pub on a weekday anymore?

Our grandads would come home from work, get fed by the wife and then off to the Pub until closing. That hardly happens at all now and sadly the Pub is fading away as it isn't supported anymore.

its actually really hard to compete with two meals for ten pound, cheap ale sector like wetherspoons , they control the market and its really difficult for independents to survive and get cheap drinks distributed to them.
its like everything in the uk now, ALL companies end up swallowed up by two or three mainstream monsters who control everthing from then on.
it makes the high street boring and its the same 'faces' all over the uk....sad
With this country being like the USA for fatness by 2050 these type of places help this insidious process flourish.
Even cannabis roof growing PEGGY GADFLYS is up for 300k in new brighton, that'll be flats soon.
Its a really old wrecked dump though.
If I won the lottery the last place id buy is an eating/drinking place, best invest in shares in companies who supply type two diabetes control drugs.....HA that's on the rise..

It is very sad, yes. I don't know of any 'Free' houses around now. Also, are there even any pubs at all that only serve drinks and maybe a packet of crisps/nuts? When I was in my teens, the only food you could hope to get in a Pub was pork scratchings or kp nuts. Or, occasionally you'd get the SuperCockle man coming round with his basket.

Pubs now are restaurants that happen to serve drinks, they're not really pubs at all.

I remember The Archers when it was a pot smokers paradise. That certainly gave punters the munchies!

It was a Pub full of real characters, the likes of which you just don't seem to get in many pubs now. Used to kick-off quite a bit though in the bar. handbag

Will have to think REALLY HARD to remember the last time I went to a Pub for a Social event.... think

These days I tend to socialise with friends at home. Cook a good meal for them and take it from there....

We take it in turns to host

No more smoking in pubs, let alone smoking pot.

Ah, happy daze!

It's since the smoking ban that all the pubs have turned into restaurants and the traditional pubs have all gone.
