    Great stuff! Most closed pubs around Bristol are either turned into Tesco Express shops or demolished to make way for flats.

    Cheers Chazman. Please to say those two reports have cleared my archives out as empty pubs go. We don't want any more pubs closing in our neck o' the woods....

    It is amazing that some pubs fail and others prosper.

    There was an old pub not far from me that closed and was demolished then a few years later a company spends over a million pounds building a new pub virtually across the road and it is doing fine
