Bedlington Terrier Closing For Good

Recommended Posts

Passed the Terrier Pub today and noticed a banner up saying they were closing for good on the 8th of March. Apparently the brewery has sold the building and the land and it's due to be turned into a care home in the near future.

The question is, will anyone miss it?

Last night tonight - £1.50 a pint and it's open until the pumps run dry.

Anyone fancy placing a book on the time of arrival/ number of police vehicles to visit the establishment at some point this evening?

I will have 10.45 and 6. With dogs.

Yes, we shouldn't have to put up with all these old folk. Far cleaner to terminate them at birth I say! :unsure:

I'm saddened by this.

Once over, a pub in a location like that (surrounded by houses and alone) would have done very well!

It's a damn shame.

39 closing a week according to a trade body. Something just under six a day nationally. Been going on for some time, but has accelerated markedly more recently. Mr Brown has taxed them out of existence; just like he's taxing genuine earners out of the country. Genuine earners, unlike his friends in the City, who ARE being rewarded for failure!

At the current rate all UK pubs will have closed their doors by 2037! A pub-closure tax should fix the situation. One year's turnover averaged over the previous five years. Daft? Of course! But no more daft than taxing tax (VAT on fuel duty)! Or pretending you are encouraging people to save for retirement, and then taxing that retirement money twice over, when ordinarily it could only be taxed once.

But folks, remember - it's all a GLOBAL problem. Count the globals. Brown-speak - the more you say it the more true it becomes.

I think the problem is less to do with taxation than with the extortionate rents the breweries charge the landlords.

Back to the Terrier, I heard it was a pound a pint all day yesterday. Unfortunately, I only learned this after I'd spent the best part of the day filling myself with full-price ale at an alternative venue.

I'll be honest, I'm only just getting over it.

Over a week later, still boarded up, yet no one has nicked the Christmas lights yet... come on The Oval, as twockers with penchant for gaudy festive decor, you're letting yourselves down here!

It'll take alot of money to clear it up back to a decent standard...

I'd like to see it done out tho, as with the right management and backing, it could be a good little pub!

It was regarded as a damn good drinking establishment many...MANY moons ago!

      All they want to do is cradle their newborn baby in their arms.
      But Bedlington parents Carly Walker and Ryan Murphy have been forced to watch from the sidelines as their daughter fights for her life.
      Little Ayda Faith Murphy was born prematurely on March 31, weighing just 4lbs, at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.
      Rushed for her first operation straight after birth and another at just four days old, she's battling terrifying odds after being diagnosed with a series of incredibly rare birth defects.
      An almost unique variant of gastroschisis, a defect of the abdominal wall, has left her intestines pushing up into her chest - a condition doctors estimate is suffered by no more than 10 babies worldwide.
      Meanwhile, her heart appears to have flipped over and lies on the wrong side of her chest, while she's receiving oxygen from a machine due to her underdeveloped lungs.
