sadly a sign of the times hopefully it will be restored soon


Comment by Peter on 2nd February 2014 at 08:41
Spent some time in there
Would frequent the red lion and big rock as we called it
I was born in a house across the road from there


Comment by kath on 2nd February 2014 at 09:29
such a bonny building going to waste. iy will probably end up as flats


Comment by joe graney on 2nd February 2014 at 09:51
am I on my own in thinking it looks similar to the building Ivy mount new springs heading towards Aspull


Comment by A.W. on 2nd February 2014 at 13:26
Is this the place that was a "fun" pub a few years ago?


Comment by Ken R on 2nd February 2014 at 14:51
Joe. When I first saw this I also thought it was Ivy Mount, but it is wider then Ivy Mount and the background is different.


Comment by Garry on 2nd February 2014 at 18:48
I was happy and in a good mood, until I saw this photo....pull it down.


Comment by Scholes Malc on 2nd February 2014 at 19:56
cant be pulled down as its a listed building.....but then again so was the old Town Hall
and here's a question for you...what was its name as a Fun Pub?


Comment by Gareth on 2nd February 2014 at 20:55
I may be wrong but was it not called ' The Rock Rock Cafe ' at one time ?


Comment by alan on 2nd February 2014 at 21:14
it was called ' The Rock Rock


Comment by Incer on 2nd February 2014 at 22:38
Why is that garrry?


Comment by John H on 2nd February 2014 at 22:45
Just a thought I wonder if the will end up as flats [these days they call them apartments]Nice cloud formations


Comment by Thomas(Tom)Walsh . on 3rd February 2014 at 00:23
A.W. and Scholes Mac , yes it was a so called fun pub, it had an Irish theme, I can't for the life of me remember its name , it was something like Bridie O'Reilly's. There was a public house a little future along known as The Little Rock,on or the others correct name was The Rock Ferry ,again I can't remember which .

Garry's an idiot, Incer. Best just to ignore him.


Comment by Garry on 6th February 2014 at 12:13
