So sad to see the old beehive like that,when I was a kid a old lady who lived two doors up from us use to ask me friday night to get her 2 bottles of nourishing stout,the beehive had a side entry which ran right down to terrace road ,so we did'nt have to go on the main roads,she use to give me 3 pence each time I went,happy days,and let me have the money off the
empties..

My sister's first job when she left school was at Dennisons the factory next door.

What a sad end to an old pub. What amazes me is that someone owns these sites before they are allowed to fall into this state.

I've contacted mitchells and butlers to see if they still own the site...
