    We used to always go in the Red House before FA Cup semi finals, now that's closed and no more Hillsborough semis.

    I could do with a trip to Sheffield. Anyone know when there is one?

    The Commercial at Chapeltown is a seriously long way out of Sheffield. (So much so that I recommended it to my mates from Luton when we played at Barnsley.)

    I really wouldn't bother about the Wisewood - a nice locals pub but you wouldn't want to go all the way out there for a beer.

    The Ale House is so out of the way it's almost impossible to say what part of town it's in - it's not even on a bus route. (A bus to Woodseats leaves a mostly downhill walk to the pub, then it's downhill again to Archer Road for a bus back into town. You've got to really want to go to this one!)

    The Forest is interesting as the home of Toolmakers Brewery, but it's a bit hit and miss with only two beers on when I went there last. (I must go back and this time remember to write a review!)

    They've missed out the Lescar and the Ecclesall Ale Club, which would definitely be on my top 30.

    I would be interested in the following.

    1. Building in near continuous use selling alcohol to the general public and still in use for that purpose today.
    2. Original building dating back to it's opening date,no complete rebuilds.
    3 No movement of the operation to another building at another site,original site only.
    A very good set of criteria but probably very hard to verify:

    The Globe in Morning Lane dates from at least the late 19th century but was rebuilt in this location - and 20 metres to the north - in 1960.
    The Plough at 38 closed in 1924 but reopened this year!
    The Plough & Harrow (JD Wetherspoon) dates all the way back to 1419 but was rebuilt - at least once - on this site in 1903, closed in 1960 but was revived by Wetherspoons in 2002, with the original 1903 retained fa├žade to King Street.
