Shut for good it seems.

Shame. Can't say I've been in it much recently but it wasn't a bad place. Decent juke box as welland none of the 'I know my beer so please keep quiet lad' types of the Whitelocks fraternity.

Went in a lot during my adolescence.

Re: The Packhorse [Briggate] is no more

christ i didn't know the PackHorse had shut down sad  (i don't get into town much these days the 'pipe and slippers' have set in unfortunately) that was a usual 'first pub meet up' for me when i went into town and always found a nice pint in there (lager i'm afraid lads tried bitter once and tasted like shite lol)

Town has changed so much for my liking (and it costs the earth for a pint as well,me and the missus went into town a few weeks back for a chinese buffet and we went to Yates on Boar Lane....£5.86 (give or take a few pence) for a pint of...get this....Fosters and a half with black current for the lady:rolleyes:  bloody con artists:lol:

We went in what was the Hogshead (can't remember what its called now) and for the same drinks....£3.50 (give or take a few pence) roll
